Mass Extinction: Life at the Brink joins scientists around the globe in search of answers to two of the most dramatic extinctions: the “K/T Extinction,” which ended the age of dinosaurs, and “The Permian Extinction,” which wiped out nearly 90 percent of all Earth’s species 252 million years ago.

VA-Indiegogo Campaign for JMU Alumni web series “weekends”

weekends: 7 days left to support indie filmmakers from JMU’s Media Arts and Design School (SMAD)


We are asking for help with recouping the expenses in making this series, including renting all of the camera equipment, money spent to feed our cast & crew that worked completely for free, and all of the travel expenses for our shoots in Virginia Beach, Harrisonburg, Fredericksburg, Richmond, and the Eastern Shore. We are also budgeting to submit to film festivals, and to host the series on a website.

We are asking for help in raising $4500, which is below the budget we will have spent on our series. Each episode cost a little over $1000 to produce, so even if we match the goal we have set, we are still creating the series at a loss.

Because this campaign is so important to all of the struggling filmmakers that worked on this series, we are pledging several different rewards for donating, including signed copies of the script, HD downloads of an episode of your choice, and links to early viewings of each episode a few days before they premiere online.

Assistant Director: Scott Carter
Director of Photography: Bill Ku
Producer: Kevin Heraldo

Start Date: November 15-16, 2014. Call times may vary.
Location: Richmond, Va. area

“She’s Home” is a suspense/thriller that follows a character named Hank as he is seduced by his employee Sofia, a young marketing professional, following an informal weekend work session. But will Sofia regret the encounter?


HANKMid to late 30s. Caucasian Male. A likable leader and husband who has worked diligently toward his goals, personally and professionally. More recently, Hank would rather spend time pushing his company to new heights than enjoying his success with his lovely wife. Usually with a mild temperament, Hank’s hiding a dark secret beneath his professional facade. He’s a natural introvert but an incredibly bright entrepreneur.

SOFIA – Early to Mid 20s. Caucasian Female. This stunning red head is Hank’s assistant and right-hand woman. She’s a rising star at Hank’s company and his trusted protégé. However, her Monica Lewinsky complex may lead to her downfall. She burns the candle at both ends and has little pity for those who aren’t taking life by the horns.

GEORGEMid to late 30s. A loyal account manager who loves to light up the room with a joke or one-liner. An opportunist waiting for a sudden move up the company ladder, he’s handsome, athletic and an extrovert.

RAYLate 20s to early 30s. A whiney, no-nonsense employee who wants to earn a paycheck and enjoy it far away from his office. As a jack-of-all trades, he can design, code, analyze and help strategize on all levels of a client’s projects, but he’s not someone you want in the pitch meeting. What he lacks in polish, he makes up for in intuitiveness.

ANNAEarly 30s. Hank’s wife is supportive of his goals, but has been neglected during his rise to the top. This fit, attractive woman has sacrificed having children because of Hank’s hectic, self-imposed work schedule.


Please e-mail contact information, pictures/reel, and resume to shes.home.casting@gmail.com with the role that you would like to be considered for. We will be having auditions by appointment ONLY in the next two weeks.
