The Bech

The Bech is a 3-10 minute comedy/drama web series following the life of young adults of various backgrounds, living in a known liberal city.
Nicknamed “The Bech,” a university apartment complex houses a wide range of characters with varying opinions and ways of life in Austin, Texas. A young lesbian unable to decide her exact career path moves into an apartment with a straight woman from a small town. After a rather awkward encounter, she discovers that an old friend is now her neighbor amongst a colorful array of new friends. Deciding on the perfect classes is the least of their problems.

This teaser will be approximately 10 minutes long and will be part of a crowdfunding campaign for the first season of the show. Food and beverage will be provided during filming, and transportation options will be available. IMDB credit will be given, and copies of scenes will be provided for your personal reel. Monetary compensation will be deferred per agreement on the revenue the final product will make.

Currently casting for the teaser:

GABRIELLE SANCHEZ: English student, feminine lesbian, of Latin heritage, on the Autism Spectrum. She’s highly creative and is constantly told that she’s talking too loudly or rambling, has an outer child-like personality, and is finding a way to embrace her social awkwardness. Her almost oblivious nature puts her into situations that her awkwardness tends to make worse.

TIANA WILLIAMS: pre-pharmacy student, straight, black. She’s full of qualities that are not generally seen together: intelligent, fun-loving, driven, heavy drinker, fiercely loyal friend, man-crazed, and studious. When in social settings, she lacks discretion with personal matters, often times sharing personal stories in great detail. She holds a leadership position in the apartment.

ELIZA SIMMONS: a woman of color, studying student affairs, straight. She indulges in talking about sex whenever she can. Her love for alcohol is rivaled only by her love for food. She fends off physical affection, claiming it to be gross. She uses eye rolls and insulting those she cares about to show her affection, and always shocks her friends with her amazing mother hen skills.

LEIA CORINTH: bisexual, white, Radio-Television-Film student, from Alaska. The heat is a constant topic of discussion for her, and she enjoys teasing her friends with southern/Texan stereotypes. The friendly teasing she suffers all align with similar themes: her being the youngest of the group at 17, how awkward she acts during more ethnic conversational topics, and Star Wars, which she hates. Her clothing style ranges from days where she dresses feminine to days that have more masculine outfits.
