Story: Unt. Forrest Goodluck and Sam Freed Project - This short film follows ALEX, an uber driver, and his strange encounters in the night. He is a strange person himself and is barely making ends meet when he has the most strange night of his life, and by the end, hopefully, he has learned to love himself.
‘Jamie’ (Female 20s) - Jamie is Alex’s blasé girlfriend. She is chill to the point of monotone. She is worried about her friends but would be hard-pressed to show emotion about it, but she is a good friend. In this bizzaro short, she is the “straight woman,” the one who keeps a level head. LEAD
‘Shawn’ (Male 20s) - Shawn is going through something. He has gone crazy and chases Alex around Albuquerque with a crowbar. He is a madman when we meet him, but in the end, we realize all he needed was a hug. LEAD
About: This is a music video for the song, Low Hanging Fruit, by music artist Max Highstein. It's a light-hearted jazz/rock instrumental piece that calls for two attractive women roughly between the ages of 35 and 47. Dancing will be required, and dancing ability is a plus, but this piece won't require much more than what one would normally do at a party or a club. The mood of the piece is whimsical and humorous. There may be some opportunity for improvisation. Actors will be credited in the video and paid $100.
Please be Covid vaccinated and safe.
Please submit a photo, resume, and contact information and we'll go from there.
