“CASTING CALL”

TWO SPIRITS, ONE SOUL

A coming-of-age style drama that sees two spirits face the truth of a single soul, "TWO SPIRITS, ONE SOUL" is a 10-minute short film dealing with themes of loss, love, and gender identity.
In this tale, Noah Murphy finds he's fallen victim to an exclusive haunting - and it couldn't have come at a worse time. Desperate for some peace from the tirade of family fault-finding, he embarks on a journey to help his gran find resolution from a life long-lived. Along the way, discoveries are made, illusions are shattered, and come the end of minute ten not a thing sits the same under the roof of house Murphy


NOAH MURPHY (Male, 19-24, thin build)
Angry and afraid, Noah stands on the brink of the biggest change life can bring - not that he first knows it. This role is central to the piece, and carries with it the emotional weight felt throughout the tale. Ever the straight man (at least metaphorically) and sufferer, Noah yearns to escape the madness that now occupies his life. Caught between a nan who's recent died and a mum with outbursts at the ready, Noah fights desperately for peace from his pains, learning, by the end, to soar high from the problems of his past and embrace what new challenges may come his way.


GRANNY MURPHY (Female, 60+)
The beating heart of the short (despite lacking her own), Noah's Gran's now more full of life now than when she was actually full of life! A character with a comment for every turn, and a passionate care for the family she's long housed, the role of Noah's Gran is central to the piece, and livens every scene. This part plays foil to that of Noah, and better explains the complexities of the journey he sets to undertake.


NOAH'S MUM (Female, 40's - 50's)
Stormy, abrasive, fallible. She'd tell you she holds her home life together with the sheer force of her hand, but she wouldn't waste much in the way of breath by doing it. The mother and matriarch of the Murphy family is not one to suffer fools gladly, and by her eye, all to be seen are fools. In "TWO SPIRITS" Noah's mum is the earthly anchor to a story intent on drifting away.

The roles listed are unpaid, though food will be provided, and transport costs supplied. "TWO SPIRITS, ONE SOUL" is an independent film production produced by a small team seeking to break new ground in the short film circuit, and give a stronger voices to groups oft-left unspoken.

"TWO SPIRITS, ONE SOUL" is a Liverpool-based project and looks to make it's initial debut in a collection of festivals at the start of 2022. Prior to this there will be a private screening scheduled mid-December that cast will be invited to, and once publicly released, footage materials may be used in showreels and Spotlights.

Filming is scheduled for the first week of November (1st-5th) with a concrete schedule to be locked into place come closer to the time. Rehearsals will also be blocked in prior to allowing cast some pre-emptive familiarity both with one another and with the material they'll be asked to perform.

Casting will take place in two stages - an initial self-taped monologue, followed by an in-person chemistry test (as the two actors at the centre of this will be the strength of the production).
