Compensation / Rates: 

Day rate of $100 for hero roles. Featured background roles will be unpaid.

Synopsis: 
‘Reason’ is a rebel call for climate action. Structured through character driven vignettes, this story will unfold as we peel back the layers and complexities of global citizens, environmental ferocity and the politics of justice. ‘Reason’ is a visual representation of the current global awakening. Using a photographic lens to capture moments, this music video aims to emulate photojournalism in the essence of creating snapshots of emotional depth; an unborn child, a lightning strike, a riot zone. A picture can say a thousand words.

Non-union and Union performers welcome. We will also be casting featured background after principal casting is complete.

Character 1 Description: 
A young man recovering from a recent drug overdose. His ability to process emotions is in reality limited. For all his productiveness, the various stressors in his life swirling around him have led him to recently seek refuge in drugs, an action that has ultimately led to a nearly fatal overdose. Even though he’s now in recovery, he’s wholly agitated, irritable at nearly every turn and seemingly still in some sort of manic state associated with being in the very thick of substance abuse. Worst of all, the fear of his desire to go down the same route again is running rampant and dominating his thought process.

Character 2 Name: 
Isidora
Character 2 Description: 
A seasoned lady and psychiatrist by profession. She is seemingly cold, yet still able to execute a therapeutic warmth when needed of her. She is direct and does not beat around the bush. She will drop the cold and calculated therapeutic stance sometimes subtly and other times, by many miles. Her experience and intellect has her have the ability to be prognostic in a versatile manner if necessary. This quality is also her biggest caveat in the sense that she will take a cold calculated approach to being a reliable source of encouragement and support even when her words carry immense emotional meaning, substance and weight.
