Aspiring Creative Minds,
We – Preston Ezell, along with roommate, Tyler Mascarello – would like to enlist your help to develop a web series. The first two episodes of a seven part series, that follows the delusions of a darkly comic masochist, are complete. Each episode follows a different escapade initiated by the removal of an organ from the protagonist’s body. Each
segment will be between 8 and 12 minutes long and end with a “Trapped in the Closet”-esque cliff hanger. To get a taste, check out the script for episode 1.
So! If you want to make something weird, memorable, important, thematically-driven, unique and fun, here’s what we are looking for…
Second Unit Director
Nelson- A fatalist bordering on nihilism, he’s all but drained of any emotional response to anything. Nothing surprises him and nothing impresses him. Small frame/skinny, meek, but visibly a college student.
Lefty- The personification of a Testicle. Creepy in a fun way, painted up like a clown and an unmistakable presence.
Dr. Garvey- Everything a Doctor shouldn’t be. He’s squeamish, he avoids giving bad news if he can, he craves the life of a wallflower, but has found himself with the life of someone approached all too frequently.
Mr. Feeley- A supportive and emotionally unstable father in his mounting age. He is an older parent somewhere between 60 and 70 and built like his son, in a non-masculine fashion.\
Brody- Playful, happy, simple, caring. The best-friend that will always be there, but never fully understand why he’s there or if he means it when he says he “understands” your troubles.Carrissa- Initially identified by her beauty, she has a cavernous intellect and a problematic curiosity. She should be a college student with blonde or red hair.
Jordan- Jordan is the compliment to Carrissa in only the looks department. He doesn’t mind being less intelligent than his girlfriend. He’s gotten through a lot of his life on his looks. He is quick to deflect any blame when he’s in the wrong.
Neyna (Nina)- The physical embodiment of Nelson’s Upper kidney. She borders on OCD and is an order-obsessed control-freak. She should be very well presented and hold an authoritative mouse voice.
**Auditions will be held Friday at the Wells Library at 5:30pm, and continue no later than 8:30pm.
When you arrive text Preston or Tyler to let us know.
Preston: (502)424-0519, firstname.lastname@example.org
Tyler: (630)532-0746, email@example.com

KIDS FOR CASH
Thursday, Feb. 20, 2014 – 7:00 pm
AMC River East, 322 E. Illinois, Chicago
KIDS FOR CASH is a riveting look behind the notorious scandal that rocked the nation. Beginning in the wake of the shootings at Columbine, a small town in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania elected a charismatic judge who was hell-bent on keeping kids in line. Under his reign, over 3,000 children were ripped from their families and imprisoned for years for crimes as petty as creating a fake MySpace page. When one parent dared to question this harsh brand of justice, it was revealed that the judge had received millions of dollars in payments from the privately-owned juvenile detention centers where the kids; most of them only in their early teens were incarcerated.

From Marlo Thomas, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Right Words at the Right Time, comes a one-of-a-kind collection of inspiring stories about ordinary women who have reinvented themselves in extraordinary ways. You can be anything you want to be.” “Reach for the moon.” “It’s never too late to make a change.” We’ve heard it all. But anyone who has ever tried to make a big life change knows that it can be a bit more complicated—and scary—than that. Using the same kinds of personal stories that made Thomas’s landmark collection, The Right Words at the Right Time a blockbuster success, It Ain’t Over…Till It’s Over, introduces us to more than fifty amazing women who are proving that it’s never too late to live out a dream—to get a PhD, travel the world, launch a business, indulge a crea! tive impulse, make a family recipe famous, or fill a void in life with a challenging new experience. Ticket orders must be ordered through TV Academy office. Once ordered, tickets will be under the last name of the ticket holder at the registration desk on the day of the event.
