Need Two Actresses - Finishing Short Student Film

I am a digital media and film production student looking to finish a short production I am working on titled "Intersection", which chronicles the lives of several women of various ages as they drive about town all addressing the various issues in their lives only to all come together at the very end of the piece. I have shot all but two of the characters, which I am currently still looking to fill the roles for. I have provided brief descriptions of them below. I am looking to fill these roles as soon as possible and each individual shoot should take roughly between 2 and 3 hours.

CHELSEA (18-22 Years Old) - The youngest character in the film and also the most naive and immature. The focus on Chelsea's character is that of a very young woman still making that transition between being an adolescent and being an adult, and thus she is a very irresponsible driver and focuses her attention on dramatizing minute issues in her life. But over the course of her experience she finds herself also experiencing the need for minor change.

LYDIA (25-30 Years Old) - The most emotionally driven character in the piece, the focus of Lydia's character is that she is a young woman fleeing a dominant and abusive relationship. Thus her character is very soft-spoken and emotionally reactive, spending the bulk of her role just trying to escape but not really knowing where she's going or if her boyfriend may be following her.

Compensation: no pay
