Role Details:


There is no pay for this role.

This role is open to non-union members.



Ethnic Look:

21-year old Brad is a jock, an athlete whose hormones drive him as strongly as his need to succeed. He hangs out with the guy who was the coolest in school, Jeff, and the guy who can score him all the free drugs he wants, Caden. His gf Deena is considered the hottie around, and all of this only makes Brad feel that much more confident and cool. He likes to think of himself as the guy other people can count on; but the truth is that dependence has never been tried, and the reality is likely something much more self-centered.

Project Details:



After being attacked by vampires, a young woman comes to terms with her new life with the help of her father. But she can't help struggling with the inevitable changes being a bloodthirsty monster brings.

10-minute short student film; my MFA thesis aimed at festival circuit.
Filming dates are tentatively set for October 16, 17, 18.

We are holding auditions on:
Tuesday, August 18, 6pm to 9pm, 4343 N. Claremont Avenue

Tuesday, August 25, 6pm to 9pm, 4343 N. Claremont Avenue

Saturday, August 29, 12noon to 3pm, Columbia College Film Bldg, 1104 S. Wabash, 3rd Flr, Room 302

The auditions on both Tuesdays will be held at my home in Lincoln Square. The Western Ave Brown Line stop is four blocks north of my house, which is near the corner of Claremont and Montrose.

Rehearsal dates will be scheduled throughout September.

This short film most closely resembles the overall look of the film we are going for, as well as the monster style our special effects artist will try to attain:

The characters are:
Simone, early 20's, conflicted over her new situation
Jeff, 26, full-of-himself loverboy who is rarely ever told "No"
Collin, mid-40's, in shape, worried father of Simone and a vampire himself
Brad, early 20's, athlete, confident, easy-going, Jeff's best friend
Deena, early 20's, the hottie of the group, sweet and kind to a fault
Rosie, early 20's, art student intellectual exploring her sexuality
Mark, early 20's, loud, comedian type out to be everyone's friend
Tiffany, early 20's, sexy as hell and loves to party
Jessica, early 20's, caretaker type, always concerned about the other person
Cory, early 20's, average sensitive guy looking for love in all the wrong places

Request copy of script and character breakdowns and notify which audition date you think you will be able to attend.
