1 Male Actor & 2 Female Actors required for Film Shoot in Dublin.

 

The Writer is a 6 min Short Film. A comic fantasy. It explores how the world of the imagination can sometimes collide with the more humdrum nature of reality.

 

Brief Synopsis:

Dave and his friend Mary are having coffee in a café. Dave strikes up a conversation with Kate, sitting nearby.

Kate tells Dave about the novel she is writing. Dave’s overactive imagination now takes over – and he begins to see himself as the hero in the novel. The audience sees his ‘interpretation’ of the story on the screen.

A final twist in the tale brings Dave firmly back to reality. He learns how the imagination can play tricks on us. And perhaps he is looking for love in the wrong places.

 

FILM ROLES:

Dave: (late 20’s/Early 30’s)

Mary: (late 20’s/Early 30’s)

Kate: (late 20’s/Early 30’s)

DAVE is an ambitious young writer. He has an over-active imagination which sometimes causes him to confuse fantasy and reality.  He is a little shy, but likes meeting new people, when the opportunity arises.

 

MARY is a good friend of Dave’s. She is a English teacher. Mary is outgoing and confident. She’s known Dave for a long time and they get on great together…

 

KATE is a published novelist. She has traveled a lot in South East Asia previously. She is usually quite friendly and outgoing. Kate has an easygoing attitude to life in general.

 

Shoot Details:

The Writer will be shot in Dublin in Mid March 2014.

 

Application Details:

Selected applicants will be called for audition by email.

 

This is a no-budget production and, therefore, the role is unpaid. However, footage will be available for the actor’s Show-reel. High quality digital still photographs from the shoot will also be supplied to the actor, with a DVD copy of the film.

 

Rehearsals might be needed so flexibility and reliability are essential.

Alex’s daily routine (though full of eccentric and interesting characters) has become rigid and claustrophobic. She seems to be a witness to the wonder of life rather than a participant in it.

But all of that may change when, grabbing a quick coffee on her way to work, she notices Simon at a nearby table. He’s there the next day too. And the day after that. Alex resolves to do something about the attraction she feels for him…But will she leave it too late? And what chance have two little particles in a great big universe got of ever colliding happily together?
