Mtown Films is casting their feature film, THE GROUNDSKEEPER, and seeking to cast the following roles:
TESSA: (female, lead, 25-32, open ethnicity) A New York Times Best Selling Author of Horror novels, Tessa is having nightmares and writer’s block, grappling with a traumatic past. Intelligent, inquisitive, beautiful, millennial with a religious streak. Very challenging role with a broad emotional range. Role might require implied nudity in one scene. Actress will be working with large snakes (pythons) with our snake handler and must not have any fear of snakes. (Name talent preferred.)
PAUL: (male, lead, 28-38, open ethnicity) Paul, Tessa’s fiancé, is a Professor at MIT, who specializes in AI and dream manipulation. He will enlist all of his tech research to help Tessa, taking her back to the scene of the trauma with the hope of reprogramming the past with the aid of an AI called Genesis. (Name talent preferred.)
GENESIS: (female, supporting, 28-38) Paul created the AI Genesis to aid Tessa in her writing and to protect her. Through “deep learning” architectures, Genesis has the ability to learn from data and moves toward increasing autonomous thought. Beautiful voice. Actress should be able to do more than one accent or style of speech as Genesis evolves. This will be voice-only acting; however, actress will be required on set.
Isabelle: (female, supporting, 25-30, open ethnicity). Beautiful, model-like, and brilliant, Isabelle is a research assistant of Paul at MIT. Role requires nudity and working with large snakes (pythons). Actress must not have any fear of snakes.

Father (male, featured, 35-45, open ethnicity) Tessa’s father.
Brother (male, featured, 8-12 years old, open ethnicity):
