Casting call for UT Graduate Thesis Film “In This Place”

“In This Place”, UT Graduate Thesis Film
Super 16mm & 35mm Short
Shooting Dates: Dec 5-14, 2008
“In This Place” is a story about the effects of globalization on the
individual and family life.

Jane moves back home to help discover herself as an artist, only to be
left alone as each of her family members announces their departure. With
each of them retreated to different corners of the globe, Jane uses her
imagination to escape the loneliness and isolation she feels and in so
doing discovers what she ultimately wants: a stronger connection with
her family.

Male Lead. Late teens/early 20s. Jane’s youngest brother. Self-centered
& fun-loving. Gets by on his good looks and charisma, though often hides
behind an air of indifference. Unhappy that his sister is cramping his
style, and decides to do something about it. Will require shooting 4-5
days in Austin. Can work with actors’ schedules.

Auditions will be scheduled by appointment.
SAG actors welcome.
