Philip Louis Raymond Calabro
Male and Female
Good Evening Gang,
A good friend and former Festivian, Philip Louis Raymond Calabro is working on film/Zoom project about an election in SC. From what he tells me, it is a bit on the satirical side. He asked me if there are any actors in the Greenville area that might be interested in joining the project. I told I thought there might one or two… This will be a paid Non-Union gig. I am including the information he sent me about the roles available. He told me they are looking for all roles, but the little girl.
Logline: A black democrat is running for Congress in a traditionally republican seat in SC.
When his former college roommate and lifelong republican joins the campaign, the blunders
never end, the staff spends a night in jail and his daughter gets suspended. But even with these
obstacles, they might still have a chance to win.
Character breakdowns of who we need:
Darius Lane: African-American, early 50s, athletic build. Darius is a democratic candidate
running for congress in South Carolina. Family is important to him and he is highly principled,
with a strong moral fiber. He’s challenged by technology, but would never admit it.
Bubba Lane : Caucasian, early 50s, handsome. Bubba, the former head of the SC
Republicans, is a well-connected political advisor. He is a fierce competitor. Although he is far
from corrupt, Bubba is willing to stretch boundaries if it increases chances of success. His
hobby is baking.
Monifa: African-American, late 30s. Monifa is Darius’ campaign manager. She is the ultimate
professional, and is passionate about civil rights. She cares about her campaign team and
enjoys a glass of wine at the end of the day.
Magalena (Mags): Hispanic,50/ 60s. Mags is responsible for donors. She is well connected in
the community. She is also the glue that holds the campaign team together. Mags is a widow
with a large number of men in her stables.
Alex : Caucasian, late 20s, bi-sexual. Alex is sarcastic and has a biting sense of humor. He is
technically savvy. Plays guitar.
Sophie : Caucasian, 22, attractive. Sophie is a recent graduate of design school (SCAD) and is
extremely fashion conscious. Although Sophie is extremely smart, she hides it well. (Think
Alexis Rose from Schitt’s Creek.) Sophie is fun and likeable.
Camilla: Caucasian, late 40s, attractive. Camilla is running against Darius for Congress. Like
Bubba, she is a well-connected Republican. She is cut-throat and will stoop to very low levels
to win. She is a Junior Leaguer and past PTO president. She entered beauty pageants in her
youth, although she never won.
Nala : African American-7-12. Nala is Darius’s daughter. She is exceedingly smart and very
tech savvy, grudgingly helping Darius when he runs into technical walls. Nala has high
aspirations and may be the first black female president.
Ron : Caucasian, late 20s, athletic build. Ron is Bubba’s assistant and is blindly loyal to Bubba.
He is over-the-top goofy and oblivious to other’s reactions to him. He has good intentions which
makes him likeable.
