This is not a Red Wall Production.
My friend and fellow filmmaker Randy Dottin is casting again. He's producing shorts for 2 filmmakers at New York Film Academy and they're in need of your talent!!
Logline: A nerdy young man lies to his mom about his new girlfriend panics when she's invited to meet the family.
Synopsis: Benji is a 22-year-old neurotic Jewish boy studying his schoolwork at a quiet bench in the park. He’s enjoying the peace and solitude until Meisha rudely (at least in Benji’s mind) interrupts it. When Meisha makes some snarky remarks about Holden Caulfield (“Cather in the Rye”) it hits a little to close to home for Benji. A debate ensues until Meisha pushes Benji to be less like Holden and finally stand up to his overbearing Jewish mother.
Benji - A thin college age white male who's a neurotic Jewish boy.
Meisha - Young African American woman with a big personality. Braids or dreads a plus. (Early 20's)
Jewish Mother - Benji's overbearing mom who calls and controls his life. The mother scene is a short phone call.
Logline: A couple fed up with cell phone technology must run for their lives as the world around them descends into a cell phone-obsessed trance.
Stephen: Early 20s, charming but judgmental at times. He believes we're all becoming slaves to our cell phones and it bothers him.
Fran: Stephen's girlfriend. She agrees with him, though not as passionately. Fran's greatest virtue is her ability to see the good in all situations.
