"Fussy" is a 10 minute University of Gloucestershire short film made by 3rd year students.
"When her sister falls ill, it’s up to Ari to care for her young niece for a few days. The trouble is, Ari can barely take care of herself, never mind another person. Usually leading a solitary life, having Tia around forces Ari to reassess her maladaptive behaviours, the worst of which being her relationship with food. With the help of Tia’s childish wisdom and honesty, Ari faces the changes she must make to break the cycle of apathy she’s been stuck in for a decade."


We need 3 actors:

ARI (22-26, character's age 24) Lead
Despite her age, Ari doesn’t quite know how to look after herself. She struggles with apathy and depression, still caught in a childlike mind-set after a childhood without any role models to prepare her for the real world. Ari does whatever is easiest at all times, even if it’s a detriment to her in the long term.
(Previous experience working with children on set is a plus. )

TIA (9-12, character's age 9) Lead
Smart, curious, independent, it’s easy sometimes to forget Tia is only a kid. She enjoys spending time watching movies in a blanket fort with her auntie Ari.
(Parents need to be able to chaperone while their child is on set. )

GEN (23-27, character's age 25) Supporting role
Ari’s sister, Tia’s mother. She’s aware of her sister’s maladaptive behaviours, but being a single mother, she doesn’t have the time to convince her sister to care for herself.
(Previous experience working with children on set is a plus. )
