Indie Horror Feature Film Shooting in 2021.

Title: After She Died
Synopsis: A grieving teenager is horrified to discover that her father's new girlfriend looks identical to her dead mother.
Genre: Horror, Thriller, Mystery

We're looking to cast a number of key roles for an upcoming horror film being shot in Sydney/New South Wales in May/June next year. All cast and crew working off of deferred payment contracts with a $100,000 production budget. Shooting dates are flexible and will be locked in by the New Year, with most shoot dates being on weekends to accommodate for our crew's availability.

Thematically and narratively akin to recent hits like HEREDITARY, PET SEMATARAY and US, AFTER SHE DIED has been described by industry professionals on The Black List as a script that "feels written by a loving fan of the horror genre, and by someone trying to use horror as a way to talk about grief, death, and a person's ability to move on from loss." Other members write, "the horror and madness really go off the rails in a fun (and terrifying) way," and "there's something abundantly creepy inherent to the story's core premise" with a climax that's "suitably visceral and grotesque."

The film is directed by Jack Dignan, the filmmaker behind the award-winning short film IT FEELS LIKE SPRING (ShortsTV, Amazon Prime, Melbourne Indie Film Festival, Prague International Film Festival + more) and the upcoming DOES NOBODY SEE THE GUN?. More information on Jack's filmography is available upon application.

Full script is available for applicants to read prior to auditioning. Express interest to receive script. Auditions will be held in person on a TBD date late October/early November.

Some roles will require Spanish-speaking scenes.
