Project: Casting Call for Improv Actors: Remote Shoot-Quarantine Comedy Show

Calling all IMPROV COMEDIANS tired of being stuck in QUARANTINE! The producing team at Upward Media Partners, Walter Richardson and Kathy Berardi (Golden Arm, The Most Interesting Developer In the World, Red Clip Video-Branded Shorts for Business, Stew, A Peacock-Feathered Blue, Forgive Us Our Transgressions) are conducting an online casting call for a short form mockumentary series that will be 100% shot remote from each performer’s individual location through user-generated content and online video conferencing. Read on for details about the show premise and how to be considered.

The pilot episode of the new series will feature a diverse set of characters who join an online support group for people who are stuck in quarantine, on lockdown, live alone and “feel” they’re having the experience of being haunted by a ghost in their home. And this online support group IS their last hope for sanity, connection and to share what’s happening with the ONLY other people who will actually believe them because they’re experiencing the same! 

Fun outtakes of mockumentary hauntings, crazy group support therapy tactics and improv will drive this quarantine comedy short-form series. 

Online/remote shoot of pilot will take place in June; with casting in May and digital distribution plans in progress. 

 


- Project is seeking a cast of 4 improv comedians to join the show as online support group members. Aspiring + experienced comedians are encouraged to either share their reel of funniest moments shot on video (several links to online or social media clips are fine to share); or comedians who do not have available samples can also request details on creating and submitting a 60-90 second video audition based on an improv prompt from the show’s premise.

Project: Paycheck

This is a short film about a Malagasy immigrant, working in Napa Valley to send money back to her family in Madagascar.

More background info, this is planed to have some french and maybe Malagasy language in it. This was inspired by my family as when I was young I watched my parents immigrate from Madagascar, to the heart of Napa Valley. This part of the story focuses on the struggle of finding a connection back home (leaving family behind) and working hard (without an education) just to send money back to take care of their family.

Project: Never Give Up

This film is about a young boy named Shawn who is a very intelligent and gifted person. He is also a shy kid but very skilled in martial arts. Shawn became the youngest person to enroll at a university because of his intelligence. His parents lived in Grand Rapids and his learning how to become independent at a young age. However, there is a mean stubborn woman named Debbie who is very jealous of Shawn and the relationships people have with him. Debbie is thinking about fighting Shawn. Shawn must confront or avoid Debbie's behavior.

 

Never Give Up

Int. OLD MAIN - WAYNE STATE UNIVERSITY - SCHOOL - DAY

 

Debbie and her friend are in a hallway of Old Main having a personal conversation. Debbie lashes out about her struggles and failures in schools and explains why she wants to get rid of Shawn, a gifted kid, skilled in martial arts, and the youngest one to enroll in college.

 

STUDENT

Hey Debbie, how are classes going?

Debbie answers the student’s question with anger and embarrassment.

Debbie

I am really struggling right now! I am not doing so well in most of my classes, I am in student debt, and my parents are now divorced! Everything is falling apart right now.

Student

Oh no Debbie, I am sorry to hear that! What is your least favorite class or which one are you doing worse in?

Debbie

Statistics! The only class we have together.

Student

Oh yeah! Do you know this really intelligent kid named Shawn?! He sits like two rows in front of us! You can probably ask him for help! I mean, the kid is so smart! I don’t know where he gets that from. I heard he doesn’t have to pay for college.

Debbie loses her temper and pushes her friend a little.

Debbie

Why does everybody have to talk about Shawn all the damn time?! It’s always about him! At least he doesn’t have to worry about student loans and struggling in school! I am sick of hearing his name!

The student feels Debbie’s jealousy and anger.

Student

Jesus, Debbie I am sorry! You didn’t have to do that! I was just saying you could ask him for help. You even sometimes tease him and harass him after class every damn day. Why?

Debbie

Look, I don’t care! All I know is that he gets out of one of his classes around noon. I have been watching him. I have a plan for his ass!

Student

Why are you being like this?! What are you saying?! Are you jealous of the kid?! He’s just a kid Debbie! We all have our faults and failures but that doesn’t mean going after the kid!

Debbie

I don’t care, I have been hearing his damn name and people always talk about how smart he is! I have a business to take care of! Keep this between us. I will be downstairs until late noon waiting for him to get out of his class!

As Debbie walks away, the student notices a knife in her back pocket.

Student

 

Oh Shit! I have to get Shawn. Should I tell the police or anybody else? No, I have to keep this to myself because I promised Debbie! I have to tell Shawn though! I need to wait outside for him!

Hey, what’s wrong?

 

STUDENT

Do you know Debbie? The lady who sits next to me, two rows behind you? You might want to get the police or somebody! I think she wants to hurt you. She’s always been jealous of you since the beginning of the semester!

Shawn is scared and threatened by this message.

SHAWN

“I didn’t do anything to her though. She is the one that teases me after statistics class, I am confused!”

STUDENT

“Where are you headed?”

SHAWN

“To my dorm.”

STUDENT

“You want me to walk you to the residence hall to keep you safe? You should get somebody for help!

SHAWN

“No thank you and no cops! I should be fine.”

STUDENT

What?!! Look, just be careful and be on high alert! You should tell somebody kid!

 

The student walks away and Shawn continues to walk to his dorm.
