Philadelphia Filmmaking Message Board › Casting Call: University of Pennsylvania Student Film
This is a student film based on agoraphobia. Here's the character descriptions. Filming will begin asap.
Contact: email@example.com asap. All ethnicities are welcome. Good Luck!
Thomas (main actor)- Main character, black haired male. He has agoraphobia, a fear of public places and "the outside." He is emotionally volatile and often despondent.
Maria (supporting actress)- Thomas' younger sister. She tries often to contact her brother, to no success. She is highly condescending and emotionally sadistic, while still enabling. She has taken care of her frail, dementia-ridden father since her mother's death; because of this distress, she overcompensates with a happy-go-lucky attitude. She responds coldly to Laura.
Laura (main actress)- Thomas's girlfriend. She takes care of Thomas because he is unemployed, and cannot go outside to get his own supplies. While she cares for him deeply, she often adopts the role of the mother-figure and moves swiftly between this boundary. She has outbursts every now and then.
We also need someone to play the father, which could also be a Younger Brother (this character is severely mentally ill; he does not talk and acts like an infant).
