"Mom Pot" - Casting call for short film



Logline:
A recently-widowed mother tries to get her life back on track, with help from her son and some baked goods.

I am directing a short film next month that is self-financed. I am looking for actors to help me bring this film to life. I can't pay, but I will provide craft services and lunch, as well as transportation for any moves. I will be very transparent about the scope of this small budget film.

2 day shoot sometime between December 17-21. The film will be released online May 12 (Mother’s Day). I will do my best to provide clips for demo reels before then.

I am looking for the following characters:

Leads
Donna (50s, early 60s)
The emotional stress from the last year and a half has made her a bit eccentric and wound up. Picturing Kitty Foreman from That 70s Show.

Ryan (late 20s, early 30s)
Only cares about himself and his comfort. Struggles in relationships with women, including his mother. Picturing Seth Rogen from a Judd Apatow film.

Supporting
Rita (50s, early 60s)
Scheming, WASP-type and Donna’s best friend. She has created a boutique edible company with her stoner son.

Jason (20s)
Stoner son who still lives at home. His baking skills have brought him closer to his mother and now they run a company together, selling edibles to wealthy mothers.

Michelle (20s)
Ryan’s Date. Too cool for him and will probably not be going on a second date.

Lawyer (30s)
Well-meaning but oblivious to Donna’s plight.
