Clearinghouse Needs Family Actors

The Clearinghouse for Military Family Readiness is looking for actors representing racial diversity - particularly Latino and African-American.  

They are producing two short films, each of which represents a family raising small children:
- The first shows a mother with a small child (girl) of 6 to 12 months. 
- The second, a mother, grandmother, and child (boy) of 1 to 3 years.  

Special Needs: 
Since we are attempting to show mother and child in as comfortable a setting as possible, we are looking for young mothers who will agree to be filmed with their own children.  This will make it much easier and natural for mom and child.  

The films will be used to introduce a training program that intends to provide guidance and tips for young parents.  The training program is first being implemented by the military, but, in time, will also be available to all parents.  

Actor commitments:
Time: The scripts are designed to be about 2 to 3 minutes in length, and will be shot in a single day, so actors will need to be available on set for only one day. 
Memorization:  The adult actors have very few lines - so there is minimal memorization.  
*For this project, we are looking for volunteers - no payment will be offered. 

Please feel free to email Frank Wilson with any questions at
