Montana Film Office

Casting Call – Three Roles in Short Film

A short film shooting in the Bozeman area this summer, “Willow Creek Road,” is seeking the following roles.


Ruth (30), a lonely housewife in rural Belgrade, Montana, becomes obsessed with her neighbor Joey (40), a seemingly neglectful, single mother. When Joey fails to pick her kids up after school one day, a painful secret propels Ruth to intervene.  She slowly assumes the responsibilities of a mother as she takes the kids home and tends to their needs. The two women must face each other, and ultimately themselves, when Joey catches Ruth trespassing. Willow Creek Road explores the complex inner lives of these two women as a mirror to the external character of Montana itself: vast big skies, stretches of winding road, endless plains and majestic mountains.


TOM – (40’s), dutiful career man. Works long hours as a Surgeon. Loves his wife Ruth but is feeling the strain of their childless marriage.

LILLY – (age 9-10) head of the household during her mom Joey’s long working hours. Serious and very responsible, Lilly had to grow up fast. Looks after her younger brother Sam (6) when her Mom’s not home. An old soul.

SAM – (age 5-6) the baby of the family. Raised by a single working Mom, and quite often his 10 yr old sister, Lily. Playful and free, with limitless energy. Unhinged, but also seeks love and affection.

Please send a headshot (or recent picture) and resume (or biography for the kids) to: Selected applicants will receive instructions on how to self-submit a taped audition. No need to travel, as we’re casting from NYC.
