SIDE HUSTLE is a character study of a sugar baby, “D,” and incorporates fiction and documentary elements. Interspersed throughout the film will be moments from documentary audio interviews with real-life sugar babies and sex workers.

This casting call is for sugar babies and sex workers who are open to participating in the documentary interview portion of the piece.

Information will not be shared with third parties, and will remain confidential. The sole purposes of this project are artistic and social - to give voice to the interviewees.
