Jason is a Biology student at Central Tech. He tends to talk 100-miles-a-minute, verbalizing his stream of consciousness. He is kind and has an awkward charm, but his quirks can sometimes outweigh his brilliance.
FOR INSPIRATION think: a young Chidi from The Good Place, but bubblier and far more positive.
In this short: Jason finds himself alone at Central Tech for Thanksgiving. Little does he know that he won't be celebrating turkey day way he expects!

[AGE: Can play very early 20s, junior/senior in college]
[ETHNICITY: any ethnicity]
A brilliant chemist, but you would never know it from the way she acts. She's a sassy, silver tongued slacker who wears funny shirts and converse. She has a care-free, charmingly eccentric, sense of humor and was admitted to college early because of her wicked smarts.
In this short: Chemistry major Casey is spending Thanksgiving alone at Central Tech (she's not welcome at home after coming
out as gay). But maybe she's not as alone as she thinks. When she comes across fellow Turkey-Day orphan Jason,
she hatches a scheme to cheer him up with a last-minute makeshift feast. Along the way they both discover that even if you don't fit in with your biological relatives, you can still find family.

WHY WE'RE MAKING THIS FILM:
We love those nerdy 1980's classics. -- silly, yet earnest movies like Revenge of the Nerds and Weird Science. However, in a post #metoo world, re-watching these favorites can be pretty cringe-worthy (and sometimes outright offensive). We're out to make a modern romp that celebrates our favorite nerdy 80's tropes while being inclusive. We have written a feature film, but we are starting with a THANKSGIVING SHORT (same world, same lead character) as a proof of concept.
