2 Male Actors for short film

Webster University

We are looking for two male actors to play the lead roles in our short film currently titled, “Sunshine”.


Ethan has just graduated high school and is getting ready to head off to college. Shortly after his graduation though, his mother has passed away, and he struggles with accepting the fact that she’s gone.

Ethan’s father notices that the passing of Ethan’s mother has taken a heavy toll on him, and he does his best to help comfort Ethan during both their time of grief.

“Sunshine” is an exploration of how everyone grieves differently and how the way we grieve as individuals affects those around us.
