Now Casting Actors and Extras for Feature Film "Shattered Glass"

Location: Arizona

Application Deadline: Sunday, January 05, 2014

MovieWork Now is announcing this on behalf of independent filmmaker Suzanne Steinberg with Falling Oranges Production company. She is casting lead roles and extra roles for her independent film "Shattered Glass". Please read the character breakdown and production details and apply if you are interested.

Synopsis: This is a story about the twilight zone, a woman who must face her own morality with the eternal questions of our society and life.

Character Breakdown

Lead Role - Lilith: Female age 25-38 years old. The story is essentially her journey into herself as she must face her greatest fears of abandonment. She chases after her childhood and a boy always out of her reach in a twilight zone of morality and relationships. As her own life slips through her fingers she is faced with her greatest choices, to see her own face within the shattered glass around her. What is her purpose, and can she find the light before all is lost to the wreckage of false hopes and memories that dissolve like sugar?

Lead Role - Mandy: Friend of Lilith, female age 25-38 years old. Mandy is Lilith's friend who follows her around during her great questions about life and her purpose. Her love for Lilith comes with hard corners and definable stereotypes, and in turn cuts like a knife around the ungroomed and developing aspects of memory and the unconsciousness of images that create the ambiguity of love.

Lead Role - Michael: Male, age 25-38 years old. He is another main character, who is being chased by Lilith. He has a business life, he finds himself entangled with a woman who intrigues him, because she is a challenge that he can never fully grasp and despite his walls that few people ever penetrate they have shared some intimate moments that he deeply values.

Lead Role - Death: Male age 50-70 years old. Death is an interesting entity. He is a bit of a lonely soul who has a sweet tooth for humanity, and a heart. His greatest torture in his mind is his purpose to witness death. He hates knowing who he is, and yet his position is the most powerful in the story.

Supporting Role - Victoria: Stepmom of Lilith, female age 30-45. Victoria is a woman who has had a hard childhood. She lost her own father at a young age and is needing to replace the dark hole of loneliness that her own aching dreams and fantasy's have left her with. She wants more than anything to be loved, but her love often comes with anger and control. In her search to have her own family in adulthood, she often re-lives the battles and failures she has fought with her own parents.

Supporting Role - God: Male age 50-70 years old. God is a harder entity to Lilith. He is sarcastic and full of pity and justifications. He creates the harder man who assumes position is inherently moralistic without true sacrifice. He represents the entitlement of man and the good fortune that many people account to being close to God or heaven, instead of hardship.

Supporting Role - Alexander: Lilith's father, male age 50-60 years old. He is a soft spoken man who is insecure and feels inadequate. His love for his daughter is rivaled with his own desires for personal success and freedom. He never felt free in his childhood and was always straddled with taking care of others, and now in adulthood he sees the narrow window for change into a life without strife which could allow him to leave the hardships of love for money and others envy.

Supporting Role - Benjamin: Lilith's younger brother, male age 3-6 years old. He is a young child, who enjoys story books and playing games. He is too young and unaware of most of the outer world and the dramas of adults and who is who, and why who is who is important.

Supporting Role - Angel/Amy: Female age 25-45. She is a secretary of sorts who deals with the imports and exports of souls, she is compassion-less but not without wisdom and insight

Supporting Role - Andy: Male age 25-40 years old. New boyfriend of Lilith. Andy is a man Lilith meets near the end of the story as she is trying to remake herself into another woman. Andy is similar to her, and she finds their similarities repulsive as well as attractive.

Supporting Role - Bill: Andy's father, male age 50-60 years old. Bill has a short fantasy scene where he fights Andy as a reflection of a father's pride and embarrassment of letting down a child.

Supporting Role - Lilith's Mother: Female, age 50-60 years old. Lilith's mother has a small scene, when Lilith is looking for hope and honesty within the chaos of losing everything around her step-mother.

Supporting Role - Little Lilith: Girl age 5-9 years old. This is the younger version of Lilith meant to show the loving and caring child she was.

Supporting Role - Teenage Lilith: Girl age 13-16 years old. This is another older but younger version of Lilith, where Lilith re-lives the drama of her childhood.

General Extras: Variety of ages. Talent will play friends of Lilith as well as represent society with bags over their heads for one scene and also throw rotten tomatoes at Lilith for another scene.
