Project: Wretched Earth

ATTENTION NOLA THESPIANS!

We are currently casting for a short film entitled “Wretched
Earth”!


SYNOPSIS: A mother and father teach their young son “Horticulture” in the 1940s South.


GENRE/ THEMES: Gritty Historical Family/ Societal Drama. The film deals with the roots of
prejudice, how it is passed down generationally, and the true cost of survival. The script does contain disturbing content and violence.


PRODUCTION: Production is set to be local to the New Orleans area (or within a 30min
vicinity). Production is slated for November 27, 28, 29. The Production is 3 Days and is PAID (including Meal stipends and travel). The whole shoot will be all exteriors and all crew (which is a limited team for safety) will be maintaining safety measures for Covid prevention including being in mask. This crew has worked successfully throughout the summer on other sets maintaining similar safety measures.


CHARACTERS:
MAE (Female) (Caucasian) (Age Range- Mid 30s to Early 40s)- A portrait of southern beauty overpowering the southern poverty and, hence, the southern labor that wears it. She can tuck in her child with the gentlest of hands but also can harden them for dirty work if need be. Though may shake a little.

BEAU (Male) (Caucasian) (5 years old to 10 years old (if the child looks younger))- Shy, quiet, innocent and unassuming. But reacts with aversion and hesitation to things in his
heart he knows, instinctively, are wrong... even if no one has told him.
Please list if he knows, coincidentally, how to do any Trick Roping with a lasso. If not, we will
be coaching him. Please also list if your child can cry on cue.
But knowing how to do these things are NOT NECESSARY in terms of him being cast in the
film.

LORETTA (Female) (Black American) (mid 30s to early 40s) She has the body of a fragile
nightingale held up by the bones of a raptor, beneath. Empathetic, emotional, gentle but when it comes to protecting her family - Fierce, without hesitation.

CLARANCE (Male) (Black American) (mid 30s to early 40s) Academic and sharply logical in his communicating but not without feeling. Feeling though doesn’t expand his lungs nor his
families... nor does it allow those sets of lungs to keep expanding. Putting aside time for feeling in a world that often is “unfeeling” is tricky. And dangerous. And the space for it, is really reserved only for his wife and child.

TEDDY (Male) (Black American) (10 to 12 years old) An athletic, quiet young man who’s
stoicism communicates what has forced him to grow up so quick- survival. He is patient and his quiet, almost docile, demeanor betrays him because when the opportunity arrises; he is quick on his feet and resourceful.
Please list if he knows, coincidentally, how to do any Trick Roping with a lasso. If not, we will
be coaching him.
But knowing how to do this is NOT NECESSARY in terms of him being cast in the film.

SUBMISSIONS: Currently we are only accepting Video Submissions. Callbacks will be via
