1. Talking Heads
– ROLES: (5) Documentary Experts on Gender/Sexuality/Queer Politics
– SHOOT DATE: Sunday, Jan. 12th, 2014 | Call time: Afternoon (Time/TBD) in San Francisco
Cheryl is seeking the tongue-in-cheek participation of (5) on-camera documentary “experts” in the fields of gender/queer politics, especially folks with an understanding of Trans/Race issues. The experts will be interviewed on Sunday, Jan. 12th in San Francisco. These interviews will include “real” questions and answers that are inspired by the issues at play in the film that Cheryl is directing. Ultimately, these interviews will be both serious and humorous in tone and have the feel of “mock-interviews” in the final film. At the same time, they will be founded on important and critical points of conversation that drive 21st century identity politics.
2. Gym Men
– ROLES: (5) muscle-men
– SHOOT DATE: Saturday, Jan. 11th, 2014 | Call time: Afternoon (Time/TBD) in San Francisco
