SEEKING:

NATALIE: Female, 18-22 years.

Shoots 1 day $100/day April 7th or 8th, 2018

 

STALKER: Male, 18-22 years.  Any Ethnicity.  Despite his in your face, not enough personal space, behavior towards Natalie he is not actually menacing.  Sweet and innocent in a overly friendly manner.  He is polite yet insistent.  This insistence creates a terrorizing effect on Natalie.  Is he too good to actually be true?

Shoots 1 day $100/day April 7th or 8th, 2018

 

PROFESSOR: Male or Female, 40+ years.  Any Ethnicity.  Psychology Professor.  A bit flustered on the first day of class.  Has a kindly, dorky charm with a casual nature and a dry sense of humor.  Can come across as sardonic, but is very knowledgeable and respected in their field. A new student presents an interesting case study.
