Via Pathless Land Pictures, currently casting the following roles:

DAVID PHILLIPS JR. - ANY ETHNICITY. Early-to-mid 20s. A protector and guardian of his brother, who is on the autism spectrum. David struggles as he is faced with the harsh reality that he must leave his brother in the care of others. He’s the embodiment of unconditional love and self-sacrifice. Friends and acquaintances describe him as direct and no-nonsense but good to the core.

DANNY PHILLIPS - ANY ETHNICITY. Late teens/early 20s. Danny is on the autism spectrum. His communication is primarily confined to quoting others, but not in a polly-parrot way. He uses the words of others to convey his thoughts and feelings. Danny knows and can recall the scientific name of nearly every species of animal and insect. He suffered years of abuse at the hand of his father and has recently lost his mother to cancer. His brother David is his dearest friend and guardian.

REVEREND ELISE VIAR - ANY ETHNICITY. 40s-60s. Rev. Elise is a Unitarian Universalist (UU) minister who embodies the intellectual freedom and inclusive love espoused by the UU religion, which can be summarized as “The free and responsible search for truth and meaning.” She pulls no punches when it comes to speaking out against intolerance and injustice, and to the same degree she loves without judgment and lends her hand and heart to those in need.

CAPTAIN EARL JACKSON -  ANY ETHNICITY. 30s-50s. Cpt. Earl is a captain with the local county sheriff’s department. Law enforcement is the only career he’s known, and he considers himself a true servant of the law and of the public. In some rare cases, protecting the public good requires bending or breaking the law; Earl knows this but doesn’t deal well with such gray areas.

As with any workplace, the film and television industries can present a wide range of potential occupational health and safety hazards to workers. The Texas Film Commission expects all productions, regardless of budget to employ best practices such as establishing a workplace harassment prevention policy as well as maintaining overall industry safety standards in order to encourage and accomplish safety on set.
