Feature Film Video Auditions - BITTERSWEET THE MOVIE

Honeybee Productions seeks 12 actors aged 18-70 to join the cast of our upcoming feature film Bittersweet.



Rebecca and her husband, Mark, have chosen a life of peace and solitude, miles away from society. Set on their self-sustaining farm in rural northern Minnesota, their special little home holds onto every memory, and creates promises for the future. With a baby on the way, everything fits nicely into place for their developing family. After Mark's sudden death, Rebecca is left without many of the things she thought she needed, except for the pregnancy, which she must handle while maintaining the house--all within the harsh, long winter of Minnesota.
