Synopsis: “Forgive me” will be a combination narrative and performance video. The song is about another side of suicide, forgiveness, and the hope that those being left behind can move on.
All parts are non-speaking, and we are in search of actors that are able to emote well, especially for the role of MOM.
Ethnicities aren’t important, however, we will try to cast the MOM, SON and DAUGHTER roles with actors that could be related. The GRANDPARENTS and UNCLES (2) ethnicities are not as important.
MOM (Female, 35-45) This is the lead role in the video. Mother arrives home and discovers a The Note left by her son that he has committed suicide. In the various scenes, we follow her through the various stages of grief. This character will be a very emotional role throughout the video. Must be available to take family pictures before production begins.
DAUGHTER (Female, 12-18) is present when MOM returns and reads The Note, and be sympathetic and supportive to Mother. Must be available to take family pictures before production begins.
SON (Male, 15-25) Most images are silhouettes or from behind. Must be available to take family pictures before production begins.
GRANDMOTHER (Female, 60-75) A peaceful and happy character that will be depicted as greeting the SON in the afterlife. Able to emote joy in being reunited with family.
GRANDFATHER (Male, 60-75) Same as requirements for GRANDMOTHER
UNCLE1 (Male 35-45) Similar requirements to GRANDMOTHER.
UNCLE2 (Male 35-45) Similar requirements to GRANDMOTHER.
GRANDPARENTS and UNCLES (2) are in one scene, that should only take 2-3 hours to film. Prefer to shoot this during golden hour (evening first choice, morning second). One location.
DAUGHTER scenes expected to require 3-4 hours, unless extended to second day. In that case, an additional 2-3 hours on a separate shoot day. One location.
SON is currently in one scene, but will also be needed for a few inserts and one-offs, and a possible green screen session. Probably 3-5 hours total, potentially over 2 or 3 different shoot dates. Currently one location, but might expand.
MOM is currently in all scenes except one. This will be the most demanding role, both emotionally as well as time commitment. There will likely be at least 2 locations, but we are still scouting at this time, so don’t know for sure.
