Stardust & Moonbeams Casting Call

Posted: December 5, 2014 by joshuasites in Jobs
The woman is behind the camera. The man is in front of it. Sparks will
fly. Think smart, fun, and sexy. Think sexual equality. Ladies, it’s time

to ‘Grab the Camera – Change the View.’ It’s the late 1920s yet very much

about today.


This 20-min film will shoot at Farmer House Museum, Bloomington, Indiana.

The director is Terri Farley-Teruel, who directed the WWII romantic feature

Beautiful Dreamer. The writer/producer is Madelyn Ritrosky, co-author of

the forthcoming women’s fiction novel of the same name. They will cast the

roles. We’ve gotten the interest of a veteran Hollywood DP to shoot this

because she knows how needed this film is – for what’s on-screen and who’s

behind the camera. This will be a festival circuit film, with both Terri

and Madelyn working on separate feature screenplays set in this same era of

the late ’20s and early ’30s.

We’re 73% funded for the shoot. Our fundraising page is

trailer, online donating, filmmakers, actors, and more), which is part of

our website http://www.StardustMoonbeams.com <

PAID, credit, copy, meals. We prefer Bloomington actors or those who can

stay with friends/family here, but there is a travel stipend. Non-union.


There are 6 roles in this film, with 3 already cast (co-leads Will Townsend

& Beth Delkit Townsend, and supporting role Matt Sykes). We’re now looking

for the 3 other SUPPORTING roles. Tentative filming dates for the

supporting roles are Jan 24-26, 2015.


JANET VAN MIRRON (ages 25-37, blonde hair): Janet is 32, divorced, and

co-manages the family department store (it’s her niche) with younger brother

Will Townsend. She’s a feminist, but it’s tough being a woman manager in the

1920s, so she has gotten comfortable with Will as co-manager. She belongs to

the same birth control rights group as the other 2 women but not as radical

as Will’s wife, Beth Delkit Townsend. Janet is dating Cary – her asst

manager and 2 yrs younger.


CARY GWYNNART (ages 23-35, blonde hair, sexy good looks): Cary is 30, prone

to wise-cracks, and the dept store asst manager. His best friend is Will

Townsend, who is married to Cary’s cousin, Beth Delkit Townsend. Store

co-managers Will and Janet Van Mirron (Will’s older sister) are Cary’s

bosses at work – and she is his girlfriend. He supports her as a woman

manager in the’20s but still chafes at store gossip that he’s “the boss’s

boy.” Requires smoking an herbal cigarette (like clover or oregano) as if

it’s a tobacco cigarette.


CHERILYN SYKES FITZSIMMONS (ages 22-33, medium/darker hair): Cherilyn is

29, friend and bookshop employee of Beth Delkit Townsend. She’s a feminist,

belonging to the same birth control rights group as the other 2 women but

not as radical as Beth. She’s married (her husband doesn’t appear). Her

youngest of 3 siblings, 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 last pregnancy. This motivates Cherilyn’s

birth control work now in the late ’20s. Requires smoking an herbal

cigarette (like clover or oregano) as if it’s a tobacco cigarette.
