Somewhere In July follows a 7 year old girl’s experience of her father’s transition into a woman. Filmed stylistically from the perspective of the child, with improv conversations of child actors, our story captures the innocent and pure love of a child, at play with an at times harsh and confusing world. July is on a path to understanding and accepting her new mother.

[JULY] [GENDER: Female] [AGE: 7-10] [ETHNICITY: Any]
July has a transgender parent. Our story picks up just after surgery and follows July as she navigates school for the first time since, her grandparents who have a lot of opinions on the issue, and her own thoughts and feelings about this shift. She experiences bullying at school and battles frustration/anger and love/sympathy with her new mother.

This actress will have improv opportunities for dialogue to get a fresh and authentic voice of a child. She is quiet and reserved, brave but hesitant. She wants to be liked by her peers and does not want to be bullied. She is shy so all of this attention complicates her life.

Auditions: We will begin by accepting reels and will call in for auditions sometime in March/April. Please email your reel or video audition of yourself along with a resume, a bit about yourself, and any applicable website/IMDB to [email protected].
Shooting Schedule: May 2018, we are currently looking at May 18-21st
