CASTING: (Leads) :
Gail Martin (50-60’S, white, female) abusive, conspiracy theory nut. Unstable, violent. Need someone who can commit to being unhinged in this role. She physically assaults her son who does not fight back but no heavy lifting or intensive fight scenes.
Days needed for filming:
MAY: 2, 16, 17
JUNE: 12, 13, 20
Amy Martin (wife of Bobby Martin, late 20’s-30’s, any race can apply, female): NO NUDITY, but she does have a part where she is on a TV screen (pre-filmed in PRIVATE with only the DP, director and the Female Assistant director present) where she is seducing one of the characters and does pleasure herself (OFF CAMERA, so not actually doing it just pretending). Only looking for people who can commit and are comfortable with their sexuality on camera for this role. This scene isn’t just her being sexy, it’s her being unhinged and unstable as well. This is a multi-faceted character role.
Amy is dealing with the stress of being the wife of a self-help guru who may also be a burgeoning cult leader. She’s pressured by her creepy, culty husband to get pregnant even though she’s not ready. Her husband moves his damaged, older brother into the house to live with them who really freaks her out when she finds out he has a crush on her and people start going missing.
