Casting / Audition Details:

This film will be shot July 13, 19-21 2019. 





Character Breakdown:

ALEXIS MYER (20s/Black) - Alexis Myer is the dispassionate sister of Derek, daughter of Renée, and best friend of Mariah. She is the co-owner of the law firm Myer, Rodriguez and Associates, a law firm she and Mariah built from the ground up. She doesn't deal well with her emotions and plays nonchalantly. She loves her mother and brother and wants to be closer to them but she resents her brother for making her feel as if he is the only one deserving of their mother's love. She is severely depressed but hides it underneath her cold manner and relentless pursue of her mother's satisfaction. She and her best friend are having some differences due to actions Mariah has taken for the greater good for Alexis.


RENÉE MYER (late 40s and up/Black) - Renée Myer is a kind heart, but is a stubborn and overbearing mother of Alexis and Derek. She loves her children to death and would do anything for them. She wants to be closer to Alexis, but Alexis is always distant. She and Derek are extremely close. She is very sensitive and like her daughter, she hides it sometimes, but also has no problem expressing her emotions. She hates that Alexis blows her off and is very inconsiderate of everyone around her.


DEREK MYER (30s/Black) - Derek Myer is the quiet and calm yet a somewhat abrasive brother of Alexis and son of Renée. He rarely yells or speaks with an aggressive voice, but can and will if need be. He wants to reconcile his relationship with Alexis but due to Alexis' unresolved anger towards him, its proving quite the challenge. He is extremely close to his mother.


MARIAH RODRIGUEZ (20s/Hispanic) - Mariah Rodriguez is a sweet but overbearing Latina woman who is the co-owner of Myer, Rodriguez and Associates and the best friend of Alexis. She and Alexis have been best friends since college and decided to build, from the ground up, a law firm. She is married with two kids and a small dog. She is family oriented and prides herself on helping those she loves and cares about. She loves Alexis like a sister and wants to help her during her time of grief, but Alexis refuses to receive any help of any kind. She doesn't take Alexis' verbal altercations to heart but it does hurt her when Alexis vents out her emotions onto her.
