3. A short film drama produced through NMFR.

Psyche – Female (18-28). Beauty comparable to Aphrodite – but must have a visible flaw – human, not a god. Naïve and vain. Curious about her husband Eros: What does he look like? What does he do? Who is his mother? She is madly in love and obedient to him at first. She suffers; she gains power over the divine, and liberates herself. Psyche needs and births a female child with Eros.

Aphrodite – Female (20-45). Italian with classical features. Flawless marble model like. A plotter behind whose smile lies an ill will. Despises the notion of becoming a mother-in-law, but acceptable if the child is male. Dotes on her son Eros, whose gold-tipped arrows can prick gods, too. Her smile melts even Zeus, but it never lasts for long. Loves mirrors; hates Psyche. Aphrodite tolerates mortals when she manipulates them. She needs power, worship, and never forgets.

Eros – Male (18-28). Supple, delightful body, moves as a dancer. A boy emotionally, first time in love, still tied to Mom, obedient to her. The cruel joker – aims his lead-tipped arrows at unlikely pairs to provoke the chaos of unrelenting passion. His gold-tipped arrows of compassion he reserves for a lucky few. Love’s a toy for him – until Psyche. Eros needs and discovers mature love.

Persephone – Female (30-45). Rules beauty and life that erupts in the spring and dies in winter. She is the Underworld co-conspirator of Aphrodite, but Persephone has some sympathy for Psyche – both are lost souls. Physically, she has polar features to Aphrodite and commands death as well as life.

Pan – Male (40-50). A musician, mischief maker, wry humor, comic. Earth god. Pile of decaying flesh/soil between this world and the Underworld. Understands that Psyche is sick with love and stuck between human and heaven – that she will become divine, give birth, and thwart Aphrodite.

Caroline (Female 30-50) & Coraline (Female 30-50). Psyche’s two older sisters. Vague of gender and age. Hard to tell them apart. Ugly in soul and envious of Psyche – shadow aspects of her.

Fate #1 Female (30-60), Fate #2 Female (30-60), Fate #3 Female (30-60)

3. “Running in Place”
As she watches her parents’ marriage explode, a precocious ten year-old finds herself in a standoff with her father. Is this family big enough for both of them?

Vanessa Bradchulis is casting the short film “Running in Place” written and directed by Robin Pohlman in association with Grand Café Media.

BILL DAWSON (40's) Bill is alternately tender and explosive. He loves his family deeply and needs their love and acceptance in return.

Practicing a fundamentalist brand of Christianity soothes his personal insecurities.

JIMMY DAWSON (18-25) Jimmy is a low-functioning autistic mute. His obsessive compulsive tendencies compel him to tear apart shoes and clothes—a great source of stress to his parents. He is fascinated by symmetry, patterns, and colors and is very affectionate despite his handicaps, especially toward Abbie.
