The Original Shareholder Experience

Production Company: Rusty Dime LLC
About: A Sundance-supported live-action short satire following an Indigenous telepresenter who must grapple with her career prospects as well as her morality when she’s asked to sell a genocidal product on live television.
Director: Petyr Xyst
Producer: Autumn Rose Billie
CASTING:
Rebecca (20s-30s, Indigenous) — a telepresenter nearing the top of her class at her employer, a giant media conglomerate which has, over time, slowly brought her into the fold of its hyper-capitalist ideologies disguised as “corporate responsibility”. She is ostensibly bold and progressive, but hides an embarrassing desire for power and holds a distance between the ‘real world’; slightly elitist but it isn’t noticeable to most people, especially her well-to-do colleagues.
Lisa (20s-40s, Indigenous) — a senior executive at a media/manufacturing/travel conglomerate, outspoken Lisa has arrived among the top of her peers within the travel sector, where she’s advocated for diversity, environmentalism, and corporate responsibility. She will have to decide who she’s loyal to in a tough company decision: her people or her job?
George (17-25, white) — a green face within the executive ranks at his employer’s headquarters, George sees himself as a professional aspirant intent on climbing the corporate food chain as quickly and efficiently as possible, imbuing whatever values will make him more successful with any given audience. He will have to convince his subordinate to join onto a controversial project before her show goes live.
Lenny (20s-50s, white) — a white man who gets seduced by the mystic, spiritual nature of Indigenous peoples and their cultures.
This is a paid, non-union project. Please email hi@paxyst with name, headshot, and contact info and we will get you sides for a self-tape.
