FILMING DATE: Friday, December 14 (this short is 6 pages long, takes places in a diner in San Antonio, Texas, and has some pretty easy dialogue. The shoot will be about 4 to 6 hours long)


  • TIFFANY, 20 - 25, Female, any ethnicity. Tiffany is a young college student and waitress at the local Tip Top Diner. She's shy and suffers from extreme anxiety. Her battle is within.

  • JAKE, 20 - 30, Male, any ethnicity. Jake is the good looking man that Tiffany has fell in love with. He has a beautiful smile and a nice physique. Even though all the ladies love Jake, Jake is gay. He appreciates every compliment but prefers men. (As a person who is quiet and reserved, the only way that we discover that Jake is gay is through dialogue at the very end of the film.)
  • THE WOMAN, 20 - 30, Female, any ethnicity. A beautiful woman walks into the Diner to meet with Jake. This character doesn't have any dialogue.
  • THE CUSTOMER, 20 - 50, Female, any ethnicity. The customer dashes Tiffany in the face with a glass of water after Tiffany accidentally speaks to her with a slight attitude. This character has minimal dialogue.
