REALITY BITES

CHARLOTTE: Any Ethnicity, Female. Mid-late teens. Charlotte is fascinated and curious by virtual reality and the possibility of an alternate world to her own. Exploring this space is fast becoming a means to escape her parents constant fighting, drawing her further and further away from them, finding solace in the alternate versions of her parents she has created. No matter how difficult, Charlotte comes to realize, fantasy worlds are hollow.

$125/day – shoots 1 day – Saturday, April 6th 2019

MICHELLE REAL: Any Ethnicity, Female. 40-50yrs. Charlotte’s mother. Her high powered job leaves her tired, yet she is more worn down by her troubled relationship. She is just trying to get through each day, very aware of the effects her stra ined marriage is having on their daughter. Doing the best she can. Pained over the loss of quality time with her daughter. VR version of MICHELLE: the same, yet so different. Chipper, but robotic. Calculated. Dotes on Charlotte in a superficial manner. Stepford-like.

$125/day – shoots 1 day – Saturday, April 6th 2019

TOM REAL: Any Ethnicity, Male. 40-50yrs. Charlotte’s father. His sad disposition is a juxtaposition to hopeful and loving face. A blue-collar man who cares about his family and is earnestly wanting them to spend quality time together despite their differences. Kind and nurturing, he fears the end of his marriage and its’ effects on his wife and daughter.

VR version of TOM: the same, yet so different. Chipper, but robotic. Calculated. Dotes on Charlotte in a superficial manner. Stepford-like.
