Production Description

Casting "Kaleidoscope," a short film. Synopsis: Zoe, a recent college graduate and aspiring young writer, has spent the last few years of her life just waiting for something to happen. After the loss of both her parents, most recently her father, who had managed to achieve great literary success before his passing, she is forced to find her way through life and define success for herself, with nothing but her father’s old journals and books to guide her. As she begins examining the journals, she discovers her father’s innermost thoughts about a great many things, and realizes just how long a shadow he casts, especially in death. She wants badly to make him proud, but she finds that she lacks inspiration. During her search for something meaningful to write about, she is forced to confront some of her emotional demons at the behest of her father, while realizing that not everything her dad said and thought is exactly right for her. Upon her enlightenment, she comes to the understanding that she has to learn to let go, and find new things to live for. She also finally realizes that she will have to suffer for her art, and that once she has paid the ultimate price, she will finally be prepared for the greatness she seeks.
