"Be Happy" - A short horror/slasherfilm

(Disclaimer: This is a non-paid opportunity since we are limited on financial resources. However, food and drinks will be provided while filming)

This two-part short student film will be exploring the experiences of Dominick and his friends as they try to escape the mysterious killer's grasp.

This film will be both organized and produced by film students Alejandro Clavier and Anthony Rodriguez, both of which have a fair amount of experience in the making of films.

Our characters will be race fluid so if you believe you fit the character and if you are cast as them, then there is no need to worry.

More than likely your style will be altered (hair, clothing, etc) in order to fit the charaters' personality.

You will also as actors be doing minor stunts and possible dealing with props and bloody prosthetics when producing the movie.

Main Killer

Silent but deadly. Conceiving and calculated. This killer is the mastermind of his kill circle. He has a very lean but strong build, although it hardly ever comes into play. Often opting to watch from the sidelines, he is incredibly dangerous when he gets involved. In addition, he also prefers to get inside the heads of his victims and give them a false sense of security before sending his followers to finish them off.

Killer 2

Brutal but loyal. This killer loves to get up close and personal with his victims. Having a similar build to the ringleader, he loves to take advantage of his speed and strength. Because of this though, his inexperience shows when he gets his kills, thus he is willing to put his own body through punishment so long as he sees blood. He will do whatever he is tasked to do in order to gain favor with the mastermind.
