Synopsis:

After the tragic death of his ex-girlfriend, Annie, a country music singer learns that he has been made the sole guardian of their estranged daughter. 

 

Putting his tour on hold, Travis Hunter must head back to his roots to confront his past, rekindle old love, and rebuild a broken relationship with his father while trying to save his career and become the father he never thought he could. 

 

THE BALLAD OF TRAVIS HUNTER is about how one man is given a second chance to get things right, even if it might be the last song he ever sings. 


Character Bios:

[AMY] [AGE: 30-40] [LEAD] 

Assertive, big sister to Annie and wife to Greg. Amy begins the film at a crossroads. With Annie’s tragic passing, she must put aside her resentment of Travis Hunter in order to plan out a funeral and move her family ahead.


[GREG] [AGE: 40-50] [SUPPORTING] 

A tall, broad-shouldered man, he is a shrewd judge of character who was once offered a quarterback position with the Dallas Cowboys, having sacrificed the opportunity to appease Amy. Jealous, skeptical and harboring a dark secret, Greg tries to push Travis away from his family in order to spare himself. 


 [ANNIE] [AGE: 25-30] [SUPPORTING] 

The softhearted ex-girlfriend to Travis and Savannah’s mother.  Seen through mostly flashback sequences, Annie reminds Travis that there is more to life than singing in front of packed stadiums and smoke-filled honky-tonk bars --- that life is about being with the ones you love and the importance of family.  Singing required for this role.  

[SAVANNAH] [AGE: 9-12] [SUPPORTING]

Savannah is an avid country music fan and idolizes Travis. Little does she know that Travis is secretly her father. Singing required for this role.

Short Film Producer, Crew, and Actors

Date posted: Jan 8th, 2020

View More >

Hello potential collaborator, 

I am in search of producer for a low budget short film that will film in the Summer of 2020. Crew and actors are also invited to apply~ 

I recently received a grant to make a short film in MN based on a story about a Latinx immigrant son and mother. It is a glimpse into an emotional moment they share when the son tries to teach his mother how to swim after being separated from each other for almost a decade. On the surface, it is about a mother overcoming her fears of the water and beneath that, it's a story about how we love and heal each other after trauma. 

In terms of qualifications for the producer, it would be preferable that they have experience, driven and passionate mentality, easy to communicate and flexible, and someone who cares deeply about immigrant and Latinx experiences.

For crew, anyone is welcomed to apply. PAs and interns may also be needed on set. 

This is low pay~ I hope to raise more funds and pay more. Even though there is a budget involved, most of this will be treated as a passion project. I do not expect to be able to pay anyone their full rate whatsoever. 

ACTORS: 

Mother (Latinx, female, 35-55 yo) 

Son (Latinx, male, 15-25 yo) 

I have descriptions available for both roles but if you fit those basic qualifications, I would love to hear from you. No experience required from the actors.

My American Dream

My name is Tony Nayenga and I wrote the book My American Dream using my pen name Nekemiah Muzazibwa.  My book in online and I have had several book signings with very good feedback.  This story chronicles my life from a Civil War inUganda 1977 to a life in the U.S. with my family.  I explain the trials and tribulations  I/we encountered with many success until I was diagnosed with mul  sclerosis which I dealt with in denial.(as it is taboo in my culture).  Also, there is a love story detailed with a hirl I didn’t know from Ghana  which led to the birth of my 2 children. But my dream  with my children has become redefined as MS is a taboo among my people as I was getting very sick. I am in the process of converting this book to a short film and next a feature film, hopefully. If any producers can contact me I’d appreciate it!  Thank you.
