StudioTEN Productions, LLC and McGreffen Studios are combining forces to bring a strong message to a global audience in the form of a short drama film. We are currently casting two leading ladies and one supporting gentleman to portray the struggling characters in our story.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Our short is called "UnExpecting", and it revolves around a low-income married couple who are knocked off their feet by an unexpected pregnancy. It's a story about "the average joe and jane", so to speak, and about how financial stress and responsibility can drive a wedge between two people and *could* even lead them to abandon each other.

This short is a non-union project funded out of pocket by the producers. Actors and actresses will receive a competitive day rate which will be discussed during the audition. Actors and actresses will also receive an IMDb credit for their role. Shoots are tentatively for weekends in late February/early March. Actors and actresses auditioning for the roles must possess and retain some flexibility during this shooting period in 2017.

Release/distribution would likely be in April (not-for-profit) through a joint effort between StudioTEN Productions, LLC and McGreffen Studios.

AVAILABLE ROLES

CARRIE

Female; Athletic Build; Caucasian/White; Late 20’s

Carrie is every young man’s dream of a loving wife. She is a beautiful young woman with a heart full of passion; she loves to paint and always follows through on her commitments. There seems to be no limit to her understanding and her forgiveness. Carrie is very much in love with her husband, Darren, and every bit as frightened by the oncoming hardship and responsibility as he is; but unlike Darren, her goal is to share this burden evenly with her husband and her desire is to see them grow into great parents as a team.

Please note: this character role requires physical intimacy- including but not limited to passionate kissing, regular cuddling and lying in bed with another (non-nude). If you cannot commit to the physical intimacy of the role, please DO NOT submit for audition.

KATE

Female; Athletic Build; Caucasian/White; Early 20’s

Kate is a go-getter who makes things happen. Not only is she beautiful, friendly and sympathetic, she's also the office superstar; a driven young woman who refuses to let a deal go unclosed. She takes an interest in her coworker Darren, who seems like a genuinely nice guy. This creates a stumbling block for the both of them as Darren's marriage begins to crumble.

Please note: this character role requires physical intimacy- including passionate kissing and suggestive physical touch (non-nude). If you cannot commit to the physical intimacy of the role, please DO NOT submit for audition.

LARRY

Male; Average Build; (No ethnic preference); Mid 50’s

Put simply, Larry is Darren’s boss. Known only as ‘sir’ to Darren, Larry is a generous and flexible man. As Darren’s personal life begins to overtake his work life, Larry becomes increasingly concerned about Darren’s ability to contribute value at the office. He looks for any and every opportunity to keep Darren around; Darren is a good man and Larry respects that. But he will not withhold workplace discipline from Darren, if Darren remains unable to regain work-life balance.

AUDITION DETAILS

Open auditions will be held at a public library location in the Baltimore/Washington area. We are currently in the process of coordinating the date and time that will be most beneficial to all of our auditioners. These auditions will be held in late December/early January.

To receive notice of said auditions and to schedule a time for your own audition once a date and a location are chosen, please submit the following information to unexpecting2017@gmail.com no later than December 13th, 2016...
