Project: Untitled Dating Project

SINGLE MOMS WITH SINGLE ADULT SONS WANTED

CASTING NEW DATING SHOW WHERE EACH GIVES THE OTHER DATING ADVICE!

 

We are searching NATIONWIDE for SINGLE MOTHERS (Age 40s-50s) WITH SINGLE ADULT SONS to be on a new dating show for a major television network where you each get to give the other advice on whom to date!

 

There is PAY, PLUS you’ll receive an all-expense-paid luxury tropical vacation / dating retreat where you can help each other find your perfect match!

 

•  Are you a single mom?
•  Do you keep yourself fit AND fabulous?
•  Does your 20 something year-old opinionated, single son want to help you find love, too?

 

We are looking for attractive single people with larger than life personalities to take part in a fun dating experiment where we allow the mothers and sons to help dictate who the other person should date – with some fun bonding opportunities in between!

 

The show is meant to empower women and fight back against the idea of ageism and a woman’s desirability ending after a certain age while also tackling the age-old question “Does mother really know best” when it comes to who their son should date.  It’ll be essentially two dating shows in one!

Project: "Bottle Rocket" Scene Performance

About:

The scene will be performed live as part of an exercise for a directing class.  I am a senior with multiple years of experience in working with actors both behind the camera and onstage.  You will have an opportunity to act in front of an entire class of fellow junior and senior RTF students, the majority of whom will be looking for actors to cast in thesis films and other projects in the coming spring semester and beyond.

Needed:

  • 2 males: early 20s to late 30s, any ethnicity.

Commitments:

  • 3-4 rehearsals: late September through early October
  • 1 in-class performance: sometime between 6-9 PM on Tuesday, October 12th

Location:

  • Auditions and performance will be held on the University at Austin.
  • Free street parking right out front will be available.

COVID-19:

All actors will need to be tested prior to the performance.  We provides free and easy access to COVID testing for non- students.  All of the necessary information will be provided via email, but please reach out with any other questions or concerns.

The piece will be performed in-person without masks in a large studio space, with an audience of roughly a dozen who will all be socially-distanced and masked.  At least 3 rehearsals will also need to be in-person and unmasked, though more may be scheduled to happen virtually by request.

“Wow!”  With the classic dry humor of Texas native Wes Anderson and the spirit of the Wilson brothers, this script launched the acclaimed writer-director’s career back in the ‘90s.  Now you’ll have an opportunity to put your own spin on a short scene from this iconic indie script.

Project: Snaketooth

At the end of the civil war a young woman conspires to retrieve her brother's remains by manipulating the Confederate Officer who took his life. "Snaketooth" is a twenty minute western short film being shot in Austin Texas. The project would be shot over the course of six days, and is scheduled to shoot on a ranch about 3 hours outside of Austin. The Short is a passion project, and will be conducted by students at the University of Texas at Austin. Unfortunately due to this being a student project we will be unable to pay our actors, however the project could give some good exposure. Jessy Schram has signed on to star in the project, and the Directors previous work "A score in the Vinyl" was accepted into 14 film festivals worldwide winning best student film at the Los Angeles Film Awards, the Montreal Independent Film Festival, the Imaginary Minds Festival, and the Socal Film awards.

“Snaketooth” is a look at war a torn society and the people caught in the crossfire. The piece tackles morality in a time of war, the value of human life, and the importance of equality through the eyes of our main character Channah, and antagonist Prescott. Channah is devastated when her brother, a soldier in the Union army, dies at the hand of the infamous Captain Prescott and his confederate troops. Grief stricken, she resolves to recover his body and bring him home where he belongs away from the horrors of war. However her efforts to do so takes her deep into the darkest part of the conflict, and forces her to confront the dehumanizing and morally ambiguous nature of war.

Project: In Search of a Spirits Startender

Overview 
Spirits of Austin will be an original YouTube series to showcase local Austin personalities while simultaneously educating them (and the viewer) on some of the finer points about spirits, the industry, and the process that goes into the creation of our products. The show will take place in the Still Austin tasting room and be hosted by an experienced and energetic “Startender.” This host will help move the conversation through a rough format of the interview, education, and the creation of a custom-made signature cocktail. Using story points and personality traits of the subject as inspiration, the “Startender” will create a custom-made cocktail that will be detailed step by step for viewers to make at home.

Casting

We are looking for a charismatic, energetic, knowledgeable, and friendly person to host the Spirits of Austin YouTube show. This person can be male or female, of any ethnicity, and should probably be between the age of 25 and 45. They should have more than a basic level of knowledge about whiskey and spirits in general. They should have at least intermediate experience making cocktails. The ideal candidate would live in Austin, have a decent following on social media, be comfortable talking to semi-celebrities and be quick on their feet. They should also need to be good on camera, charismatic, inquisitive, funny, and entertaining.

Show Details:
 
What makes bourbon, bourbon, and how is it distinctive from other whiskeys? What does distilling actually do? And while we’re at it, how exactly are gin and vodka different?
 
For most casual drinkers, the details are often hazy, if they have ever really known them at all. And that is perfectly all right! Take heart, casual sippers—you are not alone!
 
In this series, we invite Austin artists, makers, doers, and influencers into the tasting room, have them bring some friends, and film them learning the basics of distilling and how to make drinks.
 
These folks are often on their guard when on video dealing with the press. They’re equipped by their PR teams with their standard stories. We want to get away from all that and make them comfortable. We want these friends to, first and foremost, have fun and develop a positive brand impression of Still.
 
The Startender will casually learn about the talent and their backstory. He or she will ask the talents’ friends, too. Based on that information, the bartender will, on the fly, design a custom cocktail for that person.
 
Each episode will focus on a different artist and surface one general lesson, provided by the startender. The goal for each video in the series is to convey one bourbon basic everyone can internalize. Watch the whole series, and you should feel much more comfortable talking about bourbon at your next cocktail party.
 
Each episode will culminate in the group trying a cocktail named for them, which everyone will learn how to make, and the bartender explaining why they made the drink that they did. The group will then cheers and take a selfie at the end.
 
Separately, we will record the talent reading a VO script for a hands-and-pans style how-to-video explaining how to make the cocktail named for them. The videos will live on the new Still website and YouTube and be promoted through social media.
