PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

“Buried Words” – Written & Directed by Nicholas Orris

Short Film – Paid | Drama / Sci-fi

Synopsis: A teenage girl, Megan, bonds with her non-custodial mother through virtual reality, but everything changes when her mom suffers from a stroke during one of their sessions. Megan serves as primary caregiver to her mother during winter break, but soon must say goodbye to then go back to living with her father.

CASTING – 2 ROLES – NON UNION

Megan – Female – mid to late teens. A child of divorce, Megan hates living with her father and attending the private school he has forced her into. Megan’s mother, Diane, lives a few hundred miles away, and the two see each other in person only on holiday breaks. To compensate, Megan and Diane have weekly VR sessions in which they can interact together, exploring different lifelike maps, and dancing to music. Her mother’s stroke is traumatizing, and the loss of meaningful conversations with her mom is a pain Megan doesn’t wish to face.

Diane – Female – late 30s to mid 50s. Diane is separated from her daughter and lives a few hundred miles away in Stone Harbor with her boyfriend. She spends her nights socializing and dancing while making it by on a entry level job. She wants her daughter to avoid the same mistakes she made while still being her friend and the cool mom. After the stroke, Diane’s outgoing personality hasn’t changed, but her ability to do the things she wants to is limited. Strong movement skills preferred. Actor should be able to believably portray symptoms of a stroke, including expressive aphasia.
