Synopsis

White Matter follows two friends, Paul and Adam. Paul is a young loner who consumes his free time with hunting pedophiles online by posing as fake children. Adam is an everyday-man trying to be a good father and husband. He is also Paul’s coworker.  For his hobby, Paul needs portraits of young children that can’t be traced online, thus he asks Adam for one of his son.  While trusting Paul with a portrait of his son, Adam discovers a truth that will shake his relationships with his family and Paul.

Character Bios

Paul (All ethnicities, 25-35): Timid, introvert, mildly depressed, but charismatic when he needs to be. He’s also mysterious and is hiding something from Adam.

Adam (Caucasian, 30-40): Tough, bearded/stubble, protective, American-made. He’s a man’s man that cares deeply about his family. Adam and Paul are not buddy buddies but Adam holds a soft spot for Paul.

Beth (Caucasian, 30-40): inquisitive, worried, patient. Trusts Adam but not Paul based on his motivations and somewhat lackadaisical manner.

Charlie 44 (All ethnicities, 35-60): creepy, charming, rough around the edges, pathological liar, and a pedophile.

Jack (Caucasian, 9-13): innocent and playful. This role pays $50 since he’s only in three short scenes (at the same location) with two lines of dialogue.

Barista (All ethnicities)

Parent + Child (All ethnicities)
