Hey there!

I’m Jordie, a 24-year-old writer/director currently living in Melbourne. Over the last few months, I’ve been working on a script that is now complete and ready to evolve from words on a page to pictures on a screen.

At a unique runtime of 40-minutes, ‘Blue Boy’ traverses through a multitude of different genres, including Coming-of-Age, Fantasy, Thriller, Surrealism, Metafiction and Comedy.

The story follows three close friends, Magnus, Pat and Chunk, who go mushroom picking in the countryside and stumble across a mysterious, blue mushroom patch. When Magnus eats one on a dare, things start to take a surreal and mind-bending turn.

This film is difficult to sum up in a paragraph. The log-line above really only covers the first 1/3rd of the story. We encourage anyone interested to read the script in its entirety in order to get a better feel for the project.

Myself, along with a small knit crew of young, friendly and passionate filmmakers are all very excited about this one. It’s undoubtedly the most ambitious and challenging project we’ve attempted yet.

We are currently seeking three skilled actors who are similarly looking to challenge themselves, go out of their comfort zone and try something new.

Magnus

Magnus (25) is a quiet alpha. He likes to lead the pack, and using his charm is effortless and seductive in doing so. Magnus is naive though, and doesn’t know it. He’s uninformed about life. He’s a show-off, a piss-taker, a know-it-all. He won’t listen to what you say, and will act out without taking the consequences into consideration. Although Magnus might exude a stoic and self-confident exterior, we can tell that there’s an anxious and depressive character lurking beneath.

Chunk

Chunk (24) is a free spirit. She’s cheeky, funny, talkative, high-energy. She’s an eccentric, a non-conformist, a punk. She wears what she wants to wear, says what she wants to say. Chunk’s head is often in the clouds though. She’s distractible, unpredictable, unhinged. She seeks validation and attention, often needing all the focus to be on her. Despite her flaws, Chunk’s an extremely empathetic and loving individual, often unaware of her toxic traits.

Pat

Pat (26) is the father-figure of the group. He’s quiet, rational, intelligent, sensitive and self-aware. Pat's over-concerned though. In a constant state of apprehension, he can often forget to enjoy himself. He’s frustrated by Magnus and Chunk, but intrigued by them. He thinks they’re "cool", and Pat doesn’t necessarily fall into that bracket. Pat feels like an outsider, misunderstood by those around him. He’s intuitive. He knows when something feels off, and isn’t afraid to speak up about it.
