Casting Call for Indie Film Project in San Francisco


Actors needed for a proof of concept for a film in San Francisco

About the Project

This Indie film project is about an unsuccessful athlete who wants to make it big while providing opportunities for her son. Bending rules to help her boy qualify in the neighboring state, the woman realizes she might be pushing her son into losing his innocence.

Produced by Reena Dutt an SF Film Society Producing Fellow, the film is written and directed by the duo of Chris Thomas and Dan Damman (past screenwriting residents). The story is a quirky tale of broken dreams, lost innocence, narrated in a heartwarming way with hints of subtle humor. It is a short proof of concept for a feature film, and it needs actors!
