Elijah is fired from his café job, and decides to commit his life to becoming a successful artist. His family discredits his dream, which angers and disorientates him. After researching the lives of an iconic painter he loves, he creates a plan to become remembered in the art world.

I am searching for 5 actors for my RMIT student short film, which all range in age and gender.

ELIJAH - 30 Years old, awkward, Seems dejected constantly, except when painting. Passionate about creating, although it seems he’s hit a creative block. Lives at home without paying rent, until he gets fired from his café job - and everything changes.

MATILDA - Mid 20's, Lives at home along with Elijah, despite having a full time job in animal testing. Seems happy with her life, although worried for her brother. Always wears a lab coat, to show off how well she’s doing in life – especially around her parents. Loves approval, although she doesn’t actively seek it – she simply is proud of her achievements.

MALLORY AND DAN - Elijah and Matilda's parents - late 40's -50's
Mallory – Retired, chain smokes to deal with the disappointments that life has to offer. Is proud of her daughter, but not so much Elijah. Has a history of discipline-orientated parenting. Not afraid to slap her children, a real no bull type lady.

Dan – Hard working handyman, with strong macho energy. Has never cried or shown emotion, as his father was highly against this. Loves his children, thinks Elijah has plenty of wasted potential. Constantly talks about integrating him into the family business. When Elijah loses his job, he reaches breaking point, demanding rent and respect. His hard exterior ultimately is misunderstood by Elijah, leading to his downfall.

MANAGER - - Business owner, works 50 + hours at the café to ensure things run smoothly. Is pressured into hiring Elijah by his parents, and is unimpressed by what he sees. Takes a stand by firing Elijah, and is poisoned as a result. Will be missed by his family.
