|Casting complete Applications are now closed.
Have you been turned away by those closest to you in your past because of your life choices or simply for being you- ultimately abandoned by the people you expected to stand by you unconditionally?
Your reasons and stories vary widely but ultimately you were a young person left to fend for yourself, struggled and suffered loss, heartbreak but in the end, persevered on your own, started a new life for yourself and are now proudly living your life that you've created from scratch without the help of the people you once relied on.
Whether kicked out by your parents for anything from coming out to an unplanned teenage pregnancy, turned away for choosing to keep that pregnancy or place for adoption, deserted by friends for alternate choices/dress/behaviors, friendships.. turned away from church and community for anything from dating a different faith to interracial relations/love, turning down the family business to chase your own dreams or abandoned by those closest to you for a variety of reasons.
Regardless of your story: you know how it feels to be turned away, ostracized and left to start over on your own, fend for yourself- and you did! But you also know what it feels like to wish you could go home and be accepted for who you are, unconditionally.
If this sounds like you, we're casting right now for emotional, heart wrenching, yet inspirational stories with a goal of together, opening people's eyes, minds and hearts.
Ideally looking for people in their early-mid-twenties who have gone thru the process of being turned away, having to start over and rebuilt their life in the face of trials and tragedy. Successful now as it applies to them, happy and living the life they wanted for themselves. But we will entertain all ages 18 and over and their individual stories!
Location: All states, United States
Payment details: payment is tbd
Please also include in your submission, a brief description of your story and anything to confirm you have first hand experience in being shunned at some point in your life, so I can decipher that you fit the bill for this particular casting. You can message me directly if you'd like to keep this information/story private, but need to know the following before I can contact anyone:
Name, Age, Location (city.state)
Have you been shunned before and why/by who and at what age
Appears it was removed from my original post, perhaps for anonymity or protection of sharing these stories outright for all to see, which is fine, but please contact me directly/privately with your story. Unfortunately I have thousands of submissions I'm sorting thru and not enough time to call everyone, unless I know for sure they fit the casting call in regards to being shunned.
This is a doc-series, so not looking for actors or headshots for the "future", but pertinent, current and applicable stories that fit the casting call.
Thanks everyone! And thanks for all of you who'd been submitting on here! Best of luck!
