Cast and Crew needed for a short film - Closeup of a Haunting (working title)

“Closeup of a Haunting” Is short psychological drama exploring the intense feeling of impending danger experienced during anxiety attack through Jules' narration of her experience.

Jules narrates her experience using the most common symptoms of Anxiety attack, (shortness of breath, nausea and shaking) Which drive three different scenarios of what Jules describes to be how she is dying at different points in the story.

As she was going to leave for a very important interview. Which she tries to play cool about but was extremely excited and nervous about and could not screw up at any cost!

Her crippling anxiety and self deprecating thoughts often disguised as humour repeatedly become the tipping point towards death in these fatal scenes.

Under all the weirdness of her deaths through her constant voice-over you see not just what she wants you but what Jules really is talented, funny, observant and kind.

It will be shot in 4 different scenarios. The 3 death scenarios will have a unique look and feel to them. Using an expressionist style of film making to accomplish the unnatural feel and blur the lines between fantasy and reality in visual storytelling. We are mostly inside her head and that’s how I think the film to feel like The story allows for Freedom to experiment while creating that visual setup, without making it appear crazy because we are in her head which is already kind of crazy.

ABOUT ME- I am a third year student filmmaker at Macquarie University. Passionate about writing, creating and exploring complex characters and psyche.

Jules (the protagonist)

Jules is in a constant battle with herself Although she constantly talks shit about herself she really doesn’t want to be that person. All of these things are highlighted by her crippling anxiety in an anxious situation which now is actually anything and everything outside her home.
