We will be holding auditions on Saturday, February 19th between 1pm and 6pm at the UCF main Campus in the Nicholson School of Communications.  Below is a synopsis of the film and a short description of the characters. We will be shooting in the Orlando area March 11-13. If this is something you may be interested in please contact me at (305) 608-7338 for more information about the audition. 
Casual Encounters is the story of three strangers who decide to live out a fantasy and end up facing their reality. Steve is a reserved young man who has become tired of listening to stories of his best friend, Rick’s, sexual exploits and jokes about Steve’s lack thereof. He makes the choice to do something a little dangerous and unexpected when he meets two young women through Craigslist in order to live out a sexual fantasy.  Veronica, takes control of the situation as she seems to have done this sort of thing before. Jill is just as nervous as Steve but also decides to throw caution to the wind.  The three try to keep their rendezvous as impersonal as possible, meeting in a dimly lit bar and using fake names. However, their attempt to keep their affair as a one night encounter back-fires when Jill gets hired at the bookstore where Steve and Rick work and Rick introduces them both to his date for the night, Veronica.
Character Breakdowns:
  • Steve – mid 20’s, reserved, lonely, ready to try something new.
  • Veronica – mid 20’s, sultry, promiscuous, risk taker
  • Jill – mid 20’s, calculated, careful, trying to have new experiences   

Also, stay tuned for more new updates coming soon.
