Façade (male 20-25, average to muscular build) LEAD
Well-groomed, friends with everyone in the room whether they like it or not. Though he appears charitable on the surface, he always seems to have a selfish vendetta.
Duct Tape (female 18-25, slender to average build) LEAD
Intellectual, geeky, but genuinely attractive. She is a good self-less woman who does not hesitate to sacrifice for others. Despite her endless charity, she is independent enough not to let herself be trampled.
Mayonnaise (20-25, average to husky build)
The closest “friend” that Façade has. Mayonnaise enjoys the sensual aspects of life–fast food, fast cars, fast women.
Spoiled Mayonnaise (70+, husky to large build)
Visibly weary. Mayonnaise has lived an emotionally vapid life which is evident in his demeanor and face.
Damaged Façade (70+, average build)
Similar traits to young Façade, but appropriate to his age. Though he lived a successful career, he has many voids in his life now that he has difficulty trying to fill. His health is waning.
Cherry Vodka (female 25-35, curvy build)
A stripper who has mastered the art of professional seduction. As her name suggests, she is ‘artificially flavored.’
Mojito (female 18-25, petite build)
A cute friend of Cherry Vodka. A little more modest.
Fedora (male or female 18-30, slender to average build)
An annoying hipster. Similar traits to Façade. Defines him/herself by his/her fashion. He is very selfish and worldly, but hides it with an inflated appreciation of the arts.
Tax Deduction 1 (male or female 4-9)
A child of Façade and Duct Tape. Adorable, energetic, and disobedient.
Tax Deduction 2 (male or female 9-13)
Another child of Façade and Duct Tape. Starting to hit puberty, and begins to question authority.
Father Gin, J.D. (male 40-60, any build)
An emotionless individual who has seen it all and doesn’t care. He is a divorce lawyer at first, and is reintroduced later as a priest.
Mural (male 20-30, muscular build)
The ideal man. Attractive, charming, self-less and loving.
We are also looking for a composer for the film. Please email if interested.
