Real people casting for the film ‘Solace’ (www.solacefilm.com) - if you’re interested or know someone who is please send pictures/headshots/reels by April 30th to : firstname.lastname@example.org
Story Line: Following the death of her father, Sole, an idealistic 17-year oldgirl is sent to live with her estranged family in Ladera Heights and finds comfort in a questionable friendship with Jasmine, her self-destructive neighbor, leading both on a startling path to self discovery.
JASMINE - Jasmine, 19 years old, African-American. She’s the pariah of her neighborhood. She was abandoned by her addict mother at 14 years old and left to be raised by her grandmother (who dies one year ago). Her mercurial nature and revealing, in-your-face Alexander McQueen gothic-style outfits don’t go over well in her conservative cul de sac. Jasmine is one of the ‘cool kids’ on the scene (an awesome dancer) who secretly dreams of moving to New York City to be a professional dancer. Until she meets Sole, the only things that comfort her pain are Jack Daniels, cutting (which she does regularly) and dancing. Non sexual nudity involved.
GUEDADO, African-American, 18 years old, talented musician, comes from a wealthy family. His mother passed away when he was younger, he doesn’t get along with his father who is now remarrying. He is a man of few words and Jasmine’s closest friend. When Sole questions his attraction to her after seeing him kiss a guy he explains he doesn’t believe in labels and is attracted to people’s inner spirit. The only person that seems to really get that is Jasmine. He’s the musical son of David Bowie & Fela – more than anything, he wants to be an artist and wishes Jasmine would come with him to New York and leave the mediocrity of her Los Angeles neighborhood but he has no idea how to motivate her until Sole enters their world. Non sexual nudity involved.
