Audition Dates: Saturday January 22nd from 1pm-3pm; Sunday January 23rd from 5pm to 7pm
An Overtime Double Feature. Beneath the Surface: Two back-to-back stories where discovering what lies below can lead to salvation or tragedy.
Belly of the Beast – A woman wakes to find she has been dumped in a pit with no means of escape. To escape her situation she must find a way to connect with her only fellow prisoner, but it looks like they been there a long, long time and may be far too broken to provide any help. Or, is there something the mysterious fellow prisoner is intentionally holding back?
Mysteries of the Deep – In 1960’s Scotland, a team from America has arrived to try and find the Loch Ness Monster. Two of the team, Mellie and Olivia, seem off to a shaky start as things keep going wrong, and their arrogant boss, Devin, is all too ready to ignore local rules in his quest for the monster. Things get complicated further when a local is found dead and Olivia is fired for failing to protect equipment. But when Olivia breaks into the site to steal back her equipment, she discovers the secret of Loch Ness may go deeper than anyone could have possibly expected.
