FIRST LIGHT 

Director: Jason Stone 

Producer/Production Company: Oddfellows Pictures

ROLE: SEAN TERRELL - MUST be able to realistically play 16-19 years old. 

Sean is 17, rough but still a kid, burdened with more responsibility than any teenager should have after his mom split, leaving him to look after his younger brother and aging grandma.

Emotionally guarded, he still harbours feelings for Alex, the girl he used to date, but who seems to have moved on.

A strange encounter with a UFO brings the two together again, but this epic adventure proves harrowing. As Alex's supernatural abilities grow stronger, she becomes an existential threat to Sean. Ultimately, he will regain the innocence he's lost while learning to let go of the past so that he can move forward with his life…
