Actor Needed for Student Short Film in Melbourne!
The story follows Otto Allason. He is a simple farmer who has been having a strange and traumatising recurring dream. In the dream, he finds himself in an ominous graveyard at night. It is a large space with small graves spaced throughout and trees surrounding the area, with low hanging fog near the ground. The dreams start off innocent and Otto is more confused than scared. As the dreams continue, he starts to have traumatising experiences and sees triggers that give him clues about the real world. The dreams get worse and Otto refuses to fall asleep, afraid of what he’ll see in his dreams. Sleep deprivation and these visions drive him to insanity to the point where he believes he is still with his family, when in reality his wife divorced him and moved out with the children. After being driven insane, Otto finds divorce papers that bring him back to the reality of his situation and his recent divorce. The pressure is too much for him to handle and he ends up taking his own life, drowning himself in the bathtub. He is buried in the graveyard that drove him to insanity.
