Casting Call – Paid
A Romantic Evening (Short Comedic Skit)
Location: Tucson, Arizona
After seeing a movie, a couple spends some time talking about their views on life and if they would be compatible together. As the evening goes on, they are excited that their mutual attraction may lead to a romantic encounter … until one reveals something the other just can’t relate to.
This short (2 – 4 minute) comedic skit will be the first of a planned web series based on the idiosyncrasies of people who own Jeeps – called It’s a Jeep Thing. These will be shown on the website, Experience Arizona, which is a popular website for outdoor adventurers and Jeep enthusiasts. The skit will be PG rated for crude humor, adult themes, and mild profanity similar to the videos shown on the CollegeHumor Youtube channel. No nudity or sex scenes.
