Father in 2-min film

Submitted by Guest (not verified) on Wed, 01/08/2020 - 20:48

Male, 30-40

The father, along with his wife, has just received terrible news from medical staff about the health status of his infant child. He is seated together with the mother in a hospital room and he is visibly upset. When a social worker arrives and begins to converse with the mother, father appears concerned and upset while trying to be supportive to mother.
Father is present with mother for a second brief interaction at the doorway of the social worker’s office where the mother presents the social worker with a thank you card and receives a quick hug from the social worker. Father’s expression and body language appear more optimistic. He is feeling grateful for the support the social worker was able to provide in time of crisis.

**Emphasis for this part is on facial expressions and body language. There will be lines to support the interaction with real social workers, but no live audio will accompany the action for this part. ***

$150 for 2-4 hours on either Feb. 5, 6 or 7 (TBC based on availability).

Shoot location is BC Children's Hospital.
