PLEASE READ:

I am taking a new approach with this project. Instead of writing a script, I have created a general treatment (see near bottom of page). I will approach directing this film in a free-flowing sort of way. Almost Wong Kar Wai-esque. There will be improvisation throughout each stage of the project. I feel there is a chance to make this anthology into something special and unique. Take heed – the time commitment won’t be small and there will be moments of frustration and lack of clarity. It will all be part of the process as the true nature of each character and the story emerge. 

I strongly encourage anyone interested in playing the two lead roles to seriously reflect on whether or not this type of project is for you. Particularly due to the spicy romance scenes but also due to the time commitment. It’s kind of a hardcore experiment in filmmaking and I want everyone who is onboard to be truly committed to seeing it through. 

To the brave, please read on…

01

read the treatment

I have posted the treatment for this short film below. Please read through it and ask yourself if this is the type of short film you wish to star in. If you find the story and characters compelling, then the answer may be yes. 

02

understand the character

It’s important to really think about the character you are auditioning for. What do they seem to want in the story? What do they value? What kind of person do they seem to be? How might you bring them to life?

03
