New York, NY Casting Calls: Seeking actors/young actors for Columbia University MFA Student Short

Casting for a Columbia University MFA Student Short (filmed on HD). Filming on location in NY will be take place on January 15th & 16th, 2011. NO PAY (Credit, Copy, Meals Provided). SAG & Non-SAG accepted. Parents are required to attend on weekend of filming. Film will be submitted to festivals.

PLEASE NOTE: Explicit language throughout script (integral to storyline). About Filmmaker: Writer/Director, Solange Morales has worked with notable filmmakers on films for Fox Searchlight (“The Secret Life of Bees” & “Notorious”). Most recently, she served as Associate Producer for ESPN’s 30 for 30 documentary film, “One Night in Vegas,” featuring interviews with Dr. Maya Angelou, Mike Tyson and Mickey Rourke.

Lucia, a little girl playing house with her doll, observes as her vibrant teenage sister, Paloma, pesters their mother after a long day of work. When mother finally loses her temper and targets Paloma, the teen follows suit, by taking her frustration out on Lucia.

CASTING:

LUCIA
8-10 years old, Hispanic, very expressive eyes. She loves her sister but does not understand why Paloma picks on her. Lucia becomes sad after her sister intimidates her, and acts out as a result.

PALOMA
11-13 years old, Hispanic, vibrant and bold. Although she loves her little sister, she gets a kick out of messing with her. She is endless in her pursuit of getting Lucia to do what she wants her to.

MARTHA
35-40 years old, Hispanic, overworked and underpaid. She loves her daughters but lacks the adequate patience to deal with them. The mounting pressures of raising them on her own, is proving too much.
