New York Casting Calls: Casting for Student Thesis Thriller “The Well”

This is for a 30-minute non-union thesis called “The Well” for Brooklyn College MFA Graduate student Catalin Zidaru. The piece is expected to go on the festival circuit and will broadcast on Channel 75 next year.

Synopsis:
The story is a psycho thriller. It involves a girl named Candice who dreams of one day finding her true love. She meets Andy and has a drunken night she later regrets.

After mystical spells and enchantments, Belle uses Candice and her friend Peony to push her insane agenda for justice, causing a grisly murder that mimics the town’s gruesome history.
