The Sophomore

Casting Call

Soft Light Productions is looking for talent to cast in a humorous but thoughtful short film set in a college environment.

The film, titled The Sophomore, is about a tragically average college student who struggles to find purpose in life amidst an underwhelming avalanche of mediocrity.


The project is unpaid but meals are provided.

We are currently seeking non-union actors for the following parts:


Matt (male, 18-22 years old)
- The protagonist, an observant, introverted college sophomore who is searching for a direction in life but doesn’t know where to start.

Morgan (female, 18-22 years old)
- Matt’s girlfriend, also a college student. A kind and fun-loving girl.

Rochelle (male or female, 22-30 years old)
- A fairly young T.A. of an introductory acting course, a calm and confident individual.

Carlton White (Male, 50s)
- A dull Career Center employee who gives a PowerPoint presentation at a resumé workshop.

Various students
-Male and female, 18-30 years old. Both speaking and non-speaking roles.
