I am developing a short film (15 minutes max) about a military family (mid-late 20'/early 30's) with a young son 5-8 yrs old) on the day before the husband is deployed. In this film the husband commits suicide (this is not shown in the film). The intention with this film is to illustrate the pressure, trauma, and cost of military life. This is NOT an anti-military piece, in fact, my hope is to cast veterans in the adult roles, and honor the reality of military life.
I wrote the screenplay (SWAY CONTROL), and this will be my first directorial attempt.
I intend for this to be a collaborative, honest, and sincere piece.
Note- I am open to casting a Mother/Child or Father/Child pair.
Note- positions are listed as UNPAID, however, I intend to put together proposals for funding once I can develop the proof of concept. I imagine this shoot will take place in one or two days (two-locations).
