You will be asked to play Quinn. Quinn is a 22-year-old gay male who is confident and says exactly what he thinks. There is no facade when it comes to Quinn and his personality. What you see, is what you get. Quinn generally cares for his friends, but at times, can get lose within the party-state of mind.
At the beginning of the film, the audience is shown Jordyn and Miles in a seamlessly normal relationship, as quick cuts are shown of Jordyn drinking and smoking herself into numbness. After a night out with Quinn (Jordyn's gay best friend), she returns home and sits down to have a talk with Miles.
It is while this conversation is happening that the audience is shown flashbacks to the beginning of the film, where Jordyn and Miles are together, but this time, Miles is not there.
It becomes clear at this point that what the audience had seen at the beginning of the film was not reality, but Jordyn's imagination of Miles still being in her life, after they had already broken up. The film ends with Jordyn explaining to Miles that she still loves him, but keeping him around in her mind is unhealthy for her, and that she must let him go. This is when Miles disappears as he was never there, to begin with.
This film will be shot with a lot of neon lights, abstract angles, show theater clothing (glitter, jewelry ect)...
To give you an idea of the story world, the TV show 'Euphoria' was a great influent on the overall Production Design.
The film's dialogue conveys a lot of raw emotion and the film itself was written based on just that. To give you a better understanding of this, I have attached the conversation Jordyn has with Miles at the end of the film, which will come through upon application.
This film will be submitted to 2021 Film Festivals around Australia. I'm currently studying film at SAE University and will be using the school industry-standard equipment for the production of this short. I will be able to cater for the days of filming, but as I am only a film student, this would be a non-payed job, but rather a film to be able to put into your portfolio and etc.
If you are at all interested or have any questions please contact me!
