Two-Can Casting

Hi there! Welcome to the submission page for TRASH BABY! If you are looking for another project, you’re in the wrong place!


TRASH BABY is a coming-of-age drama that follows 12-year-old Stevie as she navigates growing up, getting out, and the art of finding beauty in the ugliest of places. We are currently set to shoot in Summer of 2023 in and around Portland, OR.
This Oregon-based film is written and directed by Jacy Mairs, a fellow trailer park kid and Oregonian. Staying true to its roots, this project will be produced in the Pacific Northwest by a cast and crew primarily composed of Oregon talent.

Please note: This is an R-rated motion picture containing adult themes, hard language, smoking, drinking and depictions of violence.


Jacy Mairs is a multifaceted artist currently residing in Portland, Oregon. With a long history working in the commercial world as a one-stop shop producer, she has led campaigns and shot for clients such as Google, Canva, and Nike. Jacy is also the owner of local production company, Ryko Films, which focuses on artists, brands, and intimate moments. Here she has produced music videos for artists such as Two Neighbors, Alanna Weir and the Half Talls, and Pasha Mordena, while also producing a handful of short films.
Jacy has worked on an array of narrative features for studios such as Amazon and A24, with recent work as Associate Producer for Director Alex Lehmann’s film, Acidman, which went on to premiere at Tribeca. The film was later named the Grand Jury winner at Dallas International Film Festival, Naples International Film Festival, and Audience Award winner at the American Film Festival.
