Casting Call Sheet for a short, approximately 30 minutes, independent film from Bombshell Studios, LLC (www.bombshellstudios.com).
MAXINE, 30-40 years old, female. Earthy, strong willed. Caring. Sensitive. Maxine is a little depressed and afraid she isn’t good enough for her family. Lead.
YOLANDA, 30-40 years old, female. Fun, exciting. She’s at home in a beauty shop or in a coffee shop and she can talk your ear off to prove it. Not bright but not stupid. Makes people smile. Supporting.
CARL, 35-45 years old, male. Outdoors-man. Very capable. Weathered. Supporting.
RAY, 8-10, male. Full of energy. Under his brother’s thumb but he knows how to get around it when he wants to. Can take on kids bigger than he is because he faces his brother every day. Featured.
JACK, early teens, male. Strong and capable like his dad but a bit of a bully (it’s just that age.) Likes to lord it over his little brother but no one else can pick on Ray. If anyone else does, they’d have to face Jack’s wrath. Featured.

ABOUT THE PRODUCTION: Maxine can’t figure it out. She’s not sure she wants to. Someone or something has been leaving things for Maxine in a culvert just outside the trailer park. Things she and her family need: socks for her kids, toilet paper, milk, dog food. They’re all things she’d either have to spend her meager paycheck on or steal. She has stolen before out of desperation but stealing is stealing, thieves are thieves. In fact, the whole damn town knows about her and they don’t take kindly to that kind of behavior. Some think she’s no-good. Even Maxine thinks she’s no-good. How’s she supposed to justify accepting a whole box of frozen dinners or oil for the pick-up? More importantly, how’s she supposed to convince herself that she’s worthy, that she’s better than no-good?
