Project Synopsis
The Robinsons are a private and reserved family, who hire Sam to watch their quirky son Ottie. Sam, who's eager to connect with Ottie, takes the parents' advice to play hide and seek with him. Under one condition, DON’T go down to the basement. The game transitions from sweet to sinister quickly, when Sam cannot find Ottie around the house. Lured by the little boy’s laughter down to the basement, Sam meets their demise; and the Robinson’s enjoy a delicious stew.
Additional Information & Safety Protocols: 

All cast and crew are required to wear masks. Although actors will not be acting with masks on, between shots masks will be worn. Crew will be double masked at all times.

Character 1
Ottie Robinson
12 to 13
Ottie is a sweet boy, but he’s always been just a little bit off from the other kids. He has trouble telling right from wrong when it comes to human life. He’s craving stability and a sense of belonging, because as he grows up he’s starting to realize he isn’t the same as the other kids around him.
