NO PAY EXCEPT FOR THE ROLE OF ELLIOT

IN JESUS, JEHOVAH, YEHWEY NAME, AMEN

COMEDY SHORT FILM: Elliot, a twelve year old boy, experiments with different religions. The story unfolds through flashbacks as Elliot tells his psychiatrist, Charles Scrimwall, the cheapest psychiatrist his dad could find, about the religions he has tried. At the heart of Elliot’s life is his family, and the psychiatrist helps him realize this through the most unorthodox ways.

Elliot- 11-14 year old boy, brunette, that is very bright and therefore takes life a little too seriously. Elliot is awkward, not athletic, introverted, imaginative, and a special kid.

Charles Scrimwall- (Psychiatrist)- 30-45. Worst psychiatrist ever, care free, and not a good listener unless your talking about something that interests him. His father is a great psychiatrist and Charles is his talented son that would rather play in his band than work hard.

Nancy (Elliot’s Mother)- 35-45, attractive woman, quirky, used to be an actress before marrying and having kids. Her profession is nursing. She is very strict but equally compassionate for her children.

Tom (Elliot’s Father)– 35-50, older than Nancy, steelworker, interested in all things sports and all things cheap, socially liberal and yet old-school in many ways, believes strongly in the American dream.

Steven (Elliot’s Older Brother) – 14-18, high school athlete, jock with a smart-ass sense of humor, Dad’s favorite, very interested in girls and achieving Dad’s American dream.

Hannah (Elliot’s younger sister) 6-9 years old, loves all things pink, and loves eaves dropping on her older brother Steven’s private conversations, innocent, and adores her two older brothers.
