Hello, we are currently casting for several characters for our new short film titled, The Milieu, which will be shooting May 22-25 (Memorial Day Weekend), 2020 near Estes Park, CO.
About the short film:
The film (currently titled “The Milieu”) follows John, an addiction counselor approaching 40 years old, on the day that he is to receive his five year sobriety coin at an AA meeting. Achieving this sober milestone is compromised when he learns that his partner has OD’d and John proceeds to steal drugs from a new client at his rehab facility, leading to his relapse. The film is about the cycle of addiction and how the shame and guilt that comes from being an addict is never far away.
We are currently casting for:
-JOHN – Late 30s/early 40s- A gay man who holds his cards close to his chest though he is comfortable with himself. He has the look of a guy who has been through a lot, and he has—a stint in prison, multiple rehab trips, lots of drug use, etc. But he has been able to kick his addiction to Benzos for the past 5 years and has held down a steady job at a rehab but his sobriety is a day to day internal ordeal.
-DEBBIE: Caucasian – Mid to late 20s- Debbie is a homeless girl who is still very much under the influence of drugs, particularly heroin. She has been on the streets for several months and has recently made it to the mountain town of Estes Park.
-DAWN: Caucasian – Mid 40s to 50s. Dawn is a recovering addict but has been sober for more than 20 years. She is married to a recovering addict as well and her entire life is dedicated to helping this community. But Dawn also has a very tough exterior since she is responsible for running the day to day operations at the rehab.
Auditions will be held Saturday, March 7th, from 10am to 1pm in Colorado Springs. (Address to be given out after initial email screening)
