Grade A Films is casting two actresses for its next short film production. Stork (2018) is one woman’s wild metaphorical journey inside her womb to meet her unborn child, five minutes before it is born. The film will commence as a creepy supernatural tale and will conclude with the woman on a hospital bed, cradling her newborn.

Shoot Date(s): September/October of 2017.

Where: Northern Virginia

4 day shoot.



Casting the following roles (All Ethnicities – Age range – 22 to 35):

MELISSA (Lead): Melissa is a woman in labor who is about to meet her unborn child. She hallucinates that she is driving with her friend down a dark gravel road (a metaphor for the birth canal) when she comes across an “unexplainable creature”. Her character will be frantic, nervous, and able to express horror and confusion.

ANDREA (Supporting role): Andrea is a nurse. Inside the metaphor, she is the trusty friend who helps console Melissa after she encounters the “unexplainable creature”. On the outside, she is the nurse who hands Melissa her newborn. Character will be reserved, relaxed, and assured.
