Location: Rockaway, Queens, NY


A narrative short film exploring the transition from unprotected childhood to adulthood. An impoverished but headstrong teenager embarks on a potentially self-destructive path when
she attempts to sell sexual favors to support herself in Rockaway, Queens, NY.

[ TERESA ] A petite powerhouse with delicate features. Teresa had escaped to live with her grandmother within the past couple of years after being sexually abused by her stepfather unbeknownst to her mother. Her grandmother has just died and she now faces the struggle of supporting herself while grieving a great loss. (Female, Caucasian, 17 in appearance, partial nudity required, sexual situations. MUST BE 18+.) [ DONOVAN ] Local deli store worker. He is in love with Teresa but their age gap and her unpredictable behavior has interfered with him having the nerve to openly express it. His affection runs deep for her but Teresa takes advantage of his good heart when desperation sets in. (Male, Caucasian or Mixed ethnicity, 20s) [ MITCH ] A lonely bar owner and divorcee, he becomes the object of Teresa's misguided efforts to raise money in exchange for sex. His natural charm and honesty is refreshing. (Male, Caucasian, Irish/Italian preferred, 30s to 40s, partial nudity required, sexual situations) [ CARL ] Teresa’s stepfather who had a sexual relationship with her without her mother’s knowledge. He has offered Teresa money hoping she will remain silent about their secret and guilt.(Male, Caucasian, 30s to 40s) [ MIKE ] A local, privileged delinquent. He spends his time trying hard to impress his friends who are all good skateboarders. Teresa toys with him and ends up being humiliated instead. (Male, Various ethnicities, 15-17) [ FEATURED EXTRAS ] Experienced skateboarders. (Male, Caucasian, 15-17)

Ok, I get it. It happens. And I'm sure it's a gripping story: young girls prostituting themselves. Such a shame. I just always, always question a student production requiring nudity with sexual situations. Especially for no pay. And with a young woman and older man. Eek.

Role: submit HOT GIRL CUSTOMER / No Union Affiliation / Guest-Star / Female / Asian, Caucasian, Hispanic / 18-35
Wardrobe: BIKINI
Rate: some pay (God, I hope so. This sounds awful.)
Nudity Situations: OWNER ASKS WOMAN TO SHOW HER BREASTS DURING THE JOB INTERVIEW. (I'd think this would be illegal. Like asking a candidate's age or marital status. So to document this harassment on-camera seems... like a poor choice. But I guess this whole thing is just one bad idea after another....)

I would think that a lady who took the time to get licensed as a stylist probably thought she wouldn't have to get half-naked/on the pole... no?

Well, let's see... what other jobs can women do naked/half-naked? We already have
chefs in bikinis, carwash workers in bikinis, comedians in bikinis, and completely naked travel correspondents and TV news hosts. There's a lesson to be learned here, and that is: for some disturbing reason, if you put a professional woman on camera, she damn well better be mostly naked, because that's where her value lies.

Gabby cranky... Gabby very, very cranky... but begrudgingly welcomes the new hall of shame category: "Bikinis are the New Black." So sad.

(Side note: EW, on the history of the barber's pole. Guess back in the day they did a heck of a lot more than a shampoo & a blowout.)
