"The Weight" Short Film Casting Call

Orora Filmmakers is currently casting for one lead role and two supporting roles for a short-film shot in the Metro Detroit area. Auditions will be held Saturday, September 28, 1:00 p.m. -3:00 p.m., at the Troy Library Conference room. Conference room is located on the first door on the left from the main entrance.

Synopsis:
A woman is trying to lose weight and having a hard time getting down past a certain number. Also her bank account is low.

Then she sees a flyer for free weight loss for anyone who weighs at least 150 pounds (which happens to be a little HEAVIER than she is right now). So she is trying to GAIN weight, so that she can ultimately lose it for free. Called "The Weight", it's essentially a montage of shots in this person's quest.

The piece features the person who's trying to lose the weight and two adults - maybe family members, maybe roommates - who periodically observe the woman's off-balance efforts. No dialogue.
