Youth, teen and adult actors needed for student film “The Slipping Stone” (New York, NY)

“The Slipping Stone” delves into the mind of a young teen, Falen, trying to cope with a tragedy. When all hope seems lost, she happens upon a mysterious object, The Slipping Stone, during a class trip to an old museum. The film explores the inner workings of Falen as she tries to understand her life while it is being completely turned around. The film puts the “angry teen” stereotype to rest as it gives the character of Falen substance and drive. ‘The Slipping Stone’ also steps into the world of a damaged mother-daughter relationship and moves forward as the tension and misunderstanding between them grows to the point of explosion. At the climax of the film, Falen makes a choice, one that only she has the power to make, one that will make or break the final outcome of these mysterious events.
