Private Project

Seeking: Julie Anne Moore Type

Beth, an up and coming actress seeks to have new photographs taken. When on set, she discovers that the team and the pretentious photographer, Lazarus Kirkwood, is not at all impressed with what she brings. Thinking fast, he replaces Beth with another model - wearing exactly the same clothes, with exactly the same hair, just slightly taller. Beth questions the rejection, but is then faced with her own self doubts presented through generations of disappointed sports fans, booing and cursing her out. Later that day, Beth's well to do friends smoke and drink, admiring her new shots. They, despite knowing her, cannot see that the photos that she has received are of the other model and believe that she has never looked better, praising the photographer's work. When finally returning home, Beth receives a phone call from a big shot in Hollywood. Having seen the same head-shot and believing that she has that star appeal, he urges her to come and make movies for the rest of her life.

Director Statement

As an actor myself, Seeking: Julie Anne Moore Type was created to call out the vicious and cut throat world of the casting industry and the churn and burn nature of Hollywood through the most satirical and silly way possible. Cue ancient Greeks and Victorian drunks.
