DAKOTA’S DAUGHTER - Shoot dates – 3 days between June 2nd-5th, 2015 – exact dates tbd

ANNIE: Caucasian female. Late teens.  Bright, beautiful, free spirited, loving daughter to DON.  An excellent student at the end of her Junior ye ar of High School who sees college/academics as the way out of her small, rural Pennsylvania home town.  ANNIE loves her father, and the beatific farm she has grown up on, but, like her mother, she is a dreamer and longs for more.  She feels an obligation to this beautiful prison, as her mother died when she was young, and it is just her father and herself running the farm.   A constant reader, the town library’s travel and literature sections are a daily stop for ANNIE.   She never expected to meet a fellow seeker, SAWYER, in the stacks and is thrilled by the possibilities this chance meeting brings.
Shoots 3 days.  $100/shoot day

DON: Caucasian male.  40s-50s.  A farmer through and through.  Born and raised on the farm he now runs.  Don lives a simple life. He is a loving father, but years of struggling as a single parent are starting to show.  The strong silent type.   ANNIE can only guess at the heartbreak DON suffered with the loss of his wife.  His wife’s free spirited, wandering nature was very attractive, yet impossible to satisfy in this rural setting. ANNIE is the spitting image of her mother causing DON pain he is unable to express.   DON has not been honest with ANNIE regarding her mother’s departure and may not be able to keep the truth from her any longer.  He has no intention of allowing ANNIE to go away to school or anywhere else, and is shaken to his core when ANNIE starts spending time with SAWYER.
Shoots 3 days.  $100/shoot day

SAWYER: Any ethnicity male.  Early 20s.  North American or possibly European or South American.  A stranger in town, this rugged traveler, is well read and bright, but  has an air of mystery about him.  Although friendly and easy to make conversation, he has an unspoken, troubled past and never shares much personal information.  Not one to settle down, completely happy with his back pack and well worn tent, allowing him to be here one day and moving on the next.  Definitely a solo act, not looking for any traveling companions.   Compassionate at an arms length.
Shoots 3 days.  $100/shoot day

BAILEY: Caucasian female: Late teens.  Born to live the small-town life.  BAILEY is perfectly happy where she is right now, fresh out of high school, about to get married, with a baby on the way.  Sweet, chatty and slightly ditzy.  Grew up with ANNIE and considers her a friend, but can not even imagine how much their paths will differ.  BAILEY is your textbook “rural small-town neighbor”.  She is good people, always with a smile and a comment about the weather.
Shoots 1 days.  $100/shoot day

MRS. REED: Any ethnicity female: 30s.  Bright, sunny, no nonsense, high school guidance counselor who just wants the best for her students, each to their own ability.  She has seen some kids “get stuck” in this town, while other lead perfectly happy lives here.  Always looking for options for the students so they know they’re not trapped.  Grew up in this small town, but had the benefit of going away to school and seeing the wider world before choosing to come back to live and work in this rural community.  Caring and concerned, always willing to go the extra mile.
Shoots 1 days.  $100/shoot day


A WILL, A WAGER, AND A GUN
– Shoot dates – 3 days between June 9th-12th, 2015 – exact days tbd

JEB: Caucasian male.  Mid to late 20s. &nb sp;A poor farmer living on the run down family farm in rural Georgia.  Gets by on the few crops they produce.  Just able to support himself, and his young, sweet wife MARIA, who is the love of his life.  They are looking forward to the imminent birth of their first child.  He is mourning the recent loss of his beloved father.  At his wife’s insistence, JEB’s has summoned his long gone brother, PHILLY, home to pay respects, but really to see what their father’s Will says.  JEB likes a drink or two, but has a real weakness for gambling. Never saw a card game or bet that he could pass up.  Sadly, everyone, especially PHILLY, knows this about JEB.
Must be physically fit, and able to run. Fight/stunt experience a plus.
Shoots 3 days.  $100/shoot day

MARIA: Caucasian female.  Mid to late 20s.  8 months pregnant with her first child.  A strong, capable woman with a kind heart who loves her husband, JEB.   Farming in rural Georgia in the 1920s is a hard life, but it is all that MARIA knows.  She is making the best of it, and it is always better when JEB does not spend the few dollars they have on alcohol and gambling.   Nesting and nervous, she is preparing for the arrival of their precious first born.  Out of a sense of duty, MARIA urges JEB to contact his errant brother about the death of their father.  MARIA could have no idea the tragic turn of events this puts into place.
Shoots 3 days.  $100/shoot day

PHILLY: Caucasian male.  Mid to late 20s.  Older brother to JEB.  PHILLY left the desolate family farm to pursue a better life.  Now a banker in the city, he likes to wear and drive the best that money can buy.  A selfish, show off.  A bit shifty, willing to do whatever it takes to get the advantage.   He has always resented his younger brother, realizing early on the JEB was the favorite in their father’s eyes.  Comes home to find out what he has inherited rather than any sense of paying respects to their father.  Dangerous and always willing to gamble.  Very competitive. Must be physically fit, and able to run. Fight/stunt experience a plus.
Shoots 3 days.  $100/shoot day

IRISHMAN 1: Caucasian male.  Late teens-mid 20s.  Regular poker player at the only local bar.  Likes to coerce JEB into playing cards. Considers it a sport to separate JEB from his money.  Fun loving with a bit of an edge.  Irish accent preferred.
Shoots 1 days.  $100/shoot day

IRISHMAN 2: Caucasian male.  Mid 20s-40s. Regular poker player at the only local bar.  Likes to coerce JEB into playing cards.  Considers it a sport to separate JEB from his money.  Plays the drunk, but always knows the score.  Irish accent preferred.
