Black Female Needed August
24-25 for DOTTY AND SOUL
A Black female is needed August 24 and 25 to appear in the feature film comedy DOTTY & SOUL
as it resumes filming in Oklahoma City. The woman needs to be between the ages of 50 and 75 and she needs to fit the closing specs below. She will appear on camera but does not have any lines.
DOTTY & SOUL was near completion in March when it was forced to shut down during the outbreak of COVID-19.
The film is a comedy about flamboyant entrepreneur Ethan Cox, who is caught in a racially inappropriate video that immediately goes viral. His hopes of being the man in charge of delivering a self-driving car to the public seem destined to blow up in his face. So he hires his aging mother's 71 year old caretaker, African-American DOTTY, to be the temporary replacement CEO of his company, until the public furor dies down.
The film is written and directed by Adam Saunders, and is produced by Saunders and Avril Z. Speaks. It stars Saunders as Ethan and legendary actress Leslie Uggams (DEADPOOL, EMPIRE, ROOTS) as Dotty. The film also stars David Koechner (THE OFFICE, ANCHORMAN) and Alexis Ren (DANCING WITH THE STARS, DEPORTED).
Pay is $150/day. Anything over 12 hours will incur overtime.
