Over 100 of our New York teens have been requested to audition for the upcoming anti-bully film "Red Head Randy". The client is auditioning our teens ages 13-18 for the shoot.

Red Head Randy is a feature film about a high school student named Randy who is bullied and beat up for being different. Classmates make fun of him because he is a homosexual. They tease him about his red hair, his clothes and the way he talks. They call him derogatory comments like faggot, ginger kid & foreign freak everyday. The kids gave him the nickname "RedHead Randy" and created a cyberbully site where they posted mean and hateful things about him. They made his years in high school a living hell. Feeling lonely and abandoned Randy committed suicide to escape from his life. Like many other children who have made this deadly decision, Randy felt he had no other way out. But there was something very different about Randy. His sadness turned to pure anger. Randy cried so much that his tears turned to blood. He had become so enraged in vengeance that his spirit turned evil. The anger he felt tainted his soul. It became possessed at the moment of death. His spirit returned to earth to seek revenge on all bullies, everywhere. But first, he must start with the kids who bullied him. Randy warns his victims of their demise by writing "Red Head Randy was here" in blood on the walls.
