Art Institute of Tampa film student Jay Fernandez is seeking qualified talent for his short film “Solaris” filming in Tampa, FL. Solaris is a 5-8-minute action, Sci-fi, drama short based around a girl name Norah. Please see all of the open roles below:
– Norah: Caucasian or Tan, Female, 20, Dark Hair and Dark Eyes. Fit body. Far-Sighted (No Glasses). Norah is witty, sarcastic, clever, introvert, and independent. Close to her parents and to those she can trust such as Jack and Jenna. Norah is a young female who keeps to herself but is willing to step out of her comfort zone to defend those she cares about the most. She is brave and optimistic as well as persistent towards ideas that to others would seem edgy.
– Jack: Caucasian, Male, 17, Dark-Messy Hair and Dark Eyes. Slim Body. Far-Sighted (No Glasses). Jack is shy, timid, anxious, and humble. Norah is the only friend he trusts considering she always defends him from anyone who tries to pick on him. Jack is a young kid with a kind heart and a sweet attitude but is unable to stick up for himself. Jack enjoys helping when asked without a problem and barely speaks but when he does it’s something genuine.
– Jenna: Caucasian, Female, 18, Blonde-Wavy Hair and Light Eyes. Fit-Curvy Body. Far-Sighted (No Glasses). Jenna is social, hyper, friendly, and secretly self-conscious. Jenna is best friends with Norah; she is the life of the party among any group, but when it comes to Norah she is the only one she can turn to for true advice and quality time. They have been sisters by heart since childhood.
– Cosmic Sentinel: Space Being, Male, Age: Unknown, Hair Color (Any) Eye Color (Any). Fit-muscular body. The Cosmic Sentinel is serious, aggressive, intelligent, impersonal, persistent, and single-minded. He belongs to a group of guardians known as the “Cosmic Sentinels” whose sole purpose is to keep watch over those with unusual abilities across the universe such as the super power that Norah comes to obtain (the power to absorb energy from the stars and disperse it with her hands). This Cosmic Sentinel in particular is sent to Earth to contain Norah’s power, which has gone out of hand.
