We are looking for all three roles in this film.
Sarah: Bright, bubbly enthusiastic. Sarah is about to start her first day at a new job. She is an exceedingly positive, chatty person who is maybe a little naive about how the world works. Nevertheless she has a very certain view on what’s right and wrong and always seeks to brighten other peoples days.
Jane: World worn and wary Jane can’t remember how long she’s been working at Corporate Solutions. Every day, she just puts her head down and tries not to draw the ire of the boss. All this egg shell walking has made her very cautious and cagey, wary of any kind of change or even hope of change.
Helen: Prim, proper, wound tight. Helen loves her job. It’s her purpose. She loves the power it gives over her lowly underlings and she relishes every opportunity to improve efficiency; no matter the cost. She wields her authority with an iron fist, putting the “micro” in “micro-managing”.
