Synopsis: “So Beautiful” is written along the lines of films such as “Her” and “Equals” and has a slight resemblance to “Catfish”. Set in the future where society is disengaged, overweight and obsessed with screens, everyone now stands on conveyor belts instead of walking because they are hunched over the screen device dangling from their necks. The main character tries to lure a stranger away from his virtual relationship amidst the device addicted society they now live in. Length of film is 5 minutes.
Lead female is attractive, height/weight proportionate 20 something Emily, Lead male is attractive, height/weight proportionate 20 something Ryan, Emily's nerdy but high energy female twenty something friend Brittney, rude male coffee shop employee. Extras needed for 3 scenes. Depending on the post production editing I prefer the extras to be overweight. I also prefer the rude coffee shop employee to be an ultra thin hipster but that's not essential.
Crew Positions Needed:
Camera operator, boom operator, lighting (all audio visual) engineers, post production editors, video graphic experts to superimpose opening scenes.
Paid / Non-Paid: Deferred
Other / Additional Compensation: Film Credit, DVD/Digital Copy

Email Address for Cast / Crew Submissions: firstname.lastname@example.org

Special Notes for Potential Cast/Crew: Based on the opinions of others, I have an engaging short film concept here and it's time to put some action behind it. This is my first project and I need people that believe in the project and are willing to work for proceeds down the road as the film gains exposure and hopefully mass popularity. I have been meeting with a small group of aspiring film makers here in Waco and I'm trusting we will attract the right people that are massively talented and have a strong desire to commit their time and skills to this special project. Who knows what will come of it? Please join us on our journey!
