Dear TTA List Members,

Subject: Need your help finding elderly actresses, please.

The actresses I'm looking for should be in their fifties.  The lead role involves an overweight and very old rheumatic woman, preferably African American who will be performing from a wheelchair.  I also need a female who is quite short and plump, preferably a redhead, short hair if possible, glasses, and also looks to be in her sixties or seventies.  Additionally, my support role involves a sweet looking little old lady who could be anyone's grandmother down to the home-baked oatmeal cookies—no glasses needed, neat, average weight, and no taller than 5'6" if possible.  All are speaking roles.  This is a very homogenous horror short about four little old ladies who are cannibals.  No foul language, flesh—it's so clean I'm mentoring high school drama/theater students on the set   I'm doing auditions Saturday, September 22 in the shoot location in Avra Valley.  During the shoot (October 20 and 21, a Saturday and Sunday) there will be lots of food, plenty of places to rest and relax between scenes, and everyone who participates receives their IMDb credits, contracts, and a copy of the DVD (at the wrap party) as it is going to be available through like our first horror short, Bloody Kisses, which is coming out on Amazon as of August 30th.


We just completed our first horror short and everyone's agreements were fulfilled.  My company only has a google web site at the moment, but a more professional version will soon be made available.  Dead Coyotes Productions LLC is a legitimate film business established in AZ in 2010.  I have a very reputable crew that come from Vail, Phoenix, and central Tucson.  My IMDb credits are available at nm4833040 if you care to confirm my experience.


Please feel free to have anyone interested in these roles contact me (Billie) at at any time.  I will get back with them right away and will give everyone an audition regardless of their limitations without discrepancy.  I do not discriminate and believe everyone is entitled to participate, so if they don't get a role they will be offered a chance to crew instead and still receive their film credits.


Thanks so much for passing on this information.  I sincerely appreciate your help.


Best wishes,

Mrs. Billie Brannock
