The woman is behind the camera.  The man is in front of it.  Sparks will fly.  Think smart, fun, sexy.  Ladies, it’s time to ‘Grab the Camera - Change the View.’  It’s the late 1920s yet very much about today.  We are women filmmakers.  Terri Farley-Teruel (Beautiful Dreamer) will direct; Nancy Schreiber (4th woman to join ASC, 40 yrs experience) will be DP; Madelyn Ritrosky (Stardust & Moonbeams novel) is writer/producer.

With bobbed brown hair, Beth (30) is an outspoken feminist – with a playful side.  For her, sexual equality is fundamental, and she has that with husband Will, a painter exploring photography.  Belongs to birth control rights group.  Must be comfortable with male nudity: Will is Beth’s model for an erotic photo shoot.  Also a sensual love scene.  However, since this is female appreciation of the male body rather than the all-too-familiar other way around, the woman's body will be shown more discreetly.  One discreet black & white printed photograph of Beth as one of Will’s photos from his unseen photo shoot of her.

*MUST have hair of the appropriate length (or willingness to cut or grow out) for bobbed, modern style of the late ‘20s.  Due to close shots and subtle movements for the love scene, no wigs.  Age range mid 20s to early 30s.  Should look same age as actor Brad Meyer (Will).  Caucasian.  Must be OK with other actors smoking herbal cigarettes for a realistic late ‘20s cocktail party.

            Still looking for Cherilyn (29, any hair color), Beth’s friend, belongs to birth control rights group, feminist but not as radical as Beth.  Married (husband Russ isn’t in the film).  Youngest sibling Matt Sykes, 16, is visiting from out of town.  Their mother died when he was born, her doctor giving no contraception or information to prevent a dangerous fourth/last pregnancy.  This motivates Cherilyn’s birth control work.

* Requires smoking herbal cigarette like tobacco cigarette.  Age range early 20s to early 30s but must look at least mid 20s. Caucasian.

Both roles:  self-taped auditions by invitation
Cherilyn:  casting off self-taped audition
Beth:  final audition with Brad Meyer (Will) to be taped in Indianapolis or Bloomington
Shoot location:  Farmer House Museum, Bloomington, Indiana
Expected rehearsal/shoot dates:  March 27-31, 2015 

PAID plus credit, copy, meals, and travel stipend and lodging (if needed)
Send headshot, resume, links to madelyn@stardustmoonbeams.com
