Melvin, 25-40, Black, male, the supportive man behind Jordan’s throne. He is a caring guy who can and will defend his friends and family when called to. He is loyal, maybe even to a fault, but he believes in his friends.

MESTIZA, or MIXED by Melissa Leilani Larson

Lark Timon is no stranger to failure as it looms large in her filmmaking career. Plagued by debt and professional disappointment, she chances upon a potentially career-changing opportunity only to be confronted by questions about her art, her family, and her identity as a mestiza.

From the author of THE EDIBLE COMPLEX, THE POST OFFICE, and PILOT PROGRAM.

- Lark, 30s, female, Asian. Quietly poetic, self-deprecating, anxious. A thoughtful and educated filmmaker looking for her big break—or even just a little one. Goes too far out of her way to avoid even the smallest confrontation. In serious debt from grad school. Identifies and presents as Filipinx, but her ethnicity can read as ambiguous.
- Alex, 20s-30s, female. Spontaneous, narcissistic, analytical. A poet and Lark’s current love interest. While talented and active in social justice causes, Alex comes from a wealthy background and hasn’t really ever needed to struggle as an artist. Presents as Asian American, though not necessarily Filipinx.
