HEADS

STORYLINE:  A father desperately trying to locate his missing daughter finds himself stuck overnight at an eerie rural “one stop shop” due to car troubles.

Please note the role of the ERWIN/FATHER has already been cast.

 

SEEKING:

 

GRIFFON: African American Female, Mid 50s.  Fit, strong and fearless, she is the longtime proprietor of a peculiar, off the beaten track “one stop shop”.  GRIFFON lost her husband and young child 30 years ago when their town’s water supply was poisoned in a toxic dumping “accident”, she believes was intentional.  GRIFFON’s whole world was her family.  Her hatred for the corporation that poisoned them has manifested into sociopathic vengeance seeking.  Always handy, creative, good with tools and willing to get her hands dirty, GRIFFON finds a strange comfort in the act of killing anyone who reminds her of those who’ve wronged her.  Privileged, lost, motorists who are too demanding don’t deserve to live in GRIFFON’s opinion.  Her victims reduced to morbid hunting trophies she displays in pickling jars.

Shoots 3 days $150/day – May 28th, 29th & 30th, 2018

 

CARA: Mixed Race Female, Early to Mid 20’s.  A recent college graduate, who thinks she knows everything, (book smart, not street smart), finds herself lost with car troubles at GRIFFON’s One Stop Shop .  CARA’s charm quickly turns to condescension when things are not going her way.  She is quite spoiled and accustomed to being catered to.  CARA’s mother died while while she was a small child, causing CARA’s widowed, wealthy father to lavish her with everything money could buy not wanting to see her sad.  Displacing emotions with possessions, a lavish lifestyle is her comfort zone.

Shoots 1day $125/day – Most likely Tuesday, May 29th, 2018
