FFV – Auditions 2/11/12

Posted: 2012/02/10 in Uncategorized

Yes indeed, they are going down tomorrow at 314 East Hickory in Denton. The Denton Record-Chronicle building.
I haven’t worked as much on things in the last couple days do to dealing with injuries suffered in pursuit of my other love besides film and that is professional wrestling. I’ll be hobbling around a bit tomorrow on crutches, but it has to be done to meet the film festival deadline. It’s going to make shooting interesting. I have a handful of folks scheduled. I hope to have more people that just happen to see the posts online that show up, but we’ll see how it goes. Just to reiterate the details of it:

FFV is one of Taurian Films’ projects for the Your Film Festival contest.
Shooting will take place in Denton and Pilot Point mid-Feb. to early March for the 3/31 contest deadline.

The story centers on a path of personal redemption for Gabriella Worthy, a disgraced former… Olympic swimmer. Her life the last several years has been on a downward spiral following the discovery that she skirted the law along the way to her competitive success.

Broken and isolated, Gabriella meets Cera, a young alien girl out to prove she is every bit the soldier her brothers were. The paths of the two become locked. They’ll either succeed, earn their redemption and prove their worth or be crushed and thrown into the wind.

Character Breakdowns:

· Gabriella Worthy – early to mid 20’s, white or Hispanic – Once on top of the world of competitive swimming until it was discovered she used steroids. Her world came crashing down around her topped off by a car accident that left her in a wheel chair. Now years later she is angry, bitter and alone. She shrugged it off for as long as she could but even she knows she needs to find a way to restore her name and belief in herself.

· Joseph Hendricks – mid 20?s, white or Hispanic – A physical therapist for the upstart rehabilitation ReCare. Joseph is a single father going through an ugly split from his high school sweetheart. He tries to be tough for the sake of his 10-year-old son, JR, but the drama does where on him. He is a very caring therapist, almost annoyingly so. He believes everyone can be helped and often gets personally involved in cases and goes out of his way to help.

· Joseph Hendricks, Jr. – 10, white or Hispanic – An angry little guy. He doesn’t know how to deal with his feelings about his parents splitting up and often ends up throwing out attitude at everyone from teachers, to his friends to his parents. His especially wary, and a jerk to, any women that come around he and his father.

· Brenda Taylor – Early to mid-20’s, any race – The annoyingly perky host of the Entertainment Zone tabloid news program.
