SURVIVING AJA is the coming of age tale about a determined college sophomore searching for help for a fellow mystery student who she believes was sexually assaulted. Her journey only turns up her past and the filling of a void she didn’t know she had.
The film will be no longer than 15 minutes and most actors will only be needed for one day of filming. Filming will be done in the greater Bridgeport Area. Craft will be provided and actors will be given clips of the film to add to their personal reels. Please note this is an unpaid gig.
If interested please respond with a headshot (plus existing reel if you have one) and the role you would like to audition for. I will send over a portion of the script for you to do a self-tape audition with. I am really excited to connect with CT’s talent and look forward to working with you.
