20 to 80
Full Details of Job / Opportunity
I am looking for an Actress, Actor for a short film focusing on mental health and loneliness shooting in October. I am casting for the roles of Ben and Andrea - their roles are outline below.
Plot - The short film is about a government funded service that is supposed to connect lonely people to help them make friends. The film follows one of the prescribed meetings between two people.
ANDREA: Protagonist who has been using the service for a while but hasn't managed to make any lasting connections.
Lonely, nervous (but not meek) and invested in the meetups. Her goal is to get through the meeting without saying anything stupid, so the person she is meeting will want to be her friend/ arrange another meetup. She is trying to not be as nervous and wanted to lead the conversation but keeps getting cut off by Ben. She is overly prepared because she was more nervous, but she gets thrown off course because Ben asks the questions in the wrong order.
BEN: Protagonist who works for the service is investigating why ANDREA hasn't made any successful connections. He is playing the part of someone who is using the service.
Personality traits - grandiose sense of self, shallow emotions, glibness - a state of being talkative in a smooth almost insincere way.
Ben's Goal - Ben's goal throughout the conversation is to work out why Andrea hasn't been successful during the programme - taking little consideration for her emotions.
