LOGLINE: When naive university student Jamie discovers her latest Tinder date is stranger than she anticipated, things will take a turn for the worst when her parents go away.

My name is Jackson, and I'm a filmmaker based in Melbourne. I'm looking to make a short slasher film, which simply follows a young woman named Peyton the days following a strange date she met online, ultimately leading to chase sequence in her home. The filming will include a small crew as we plan to film the short in a day into night- as the film takes places mainly at her home. We are planning to film the short on iOS and run with a guerilla-style shoot.

This is merely some fun as an exercise to try and recreate both the camera and storytelling techniques used in classic slasher movie chases sequences- such as the infamous Drew Barrymore opening scene in Scream. We are reaching out to gauge interest, and plan to film in early October.

Job payment

This job is unpaid


Peyton

Peyton is a stubborn, yet strong-willed young woman. While she doesn't feel the need to find a boyfriend, she feels compelled to "Swipe Right" by her friends (all of whom have found love online). She is strong-minded, and while she may bend under pressure, she will not break. Experienced in bad relationships, Peyton is aware of what she wants and what is good/bad for her. The product of a generation of watching horror movies, this 2018 "Final Girl" knows how to outsmart her killer.

Female, aged 18 to 22

Applications closed 12 September 2019.

Jake

Jake fantasizes about becoming infamous in history as "The Social Media Killer". Using platforms such as Facebook and Tinder, Jake stalks his victims or even goes on dates with them before establishing a time to strike. Paranoid, obsessive... not the man you'd want to swipe right to.

Male, aged 18 to 25

Applications closed 12 September 2019.

Tayla

Peyton's sidekick best friend. She may not be her best influence, but she means well. Tayla is trying to get Peyton to find a boyfriend and is encouraging her to use the online dating app.

Female, aged 18 to 22
