This film is about an author named James who begins to write a story about killing his roommate, Tom. But as his story develops, he starts to lose his grip on reality. He wakes up to strange things being typed on his laptop with no memory of ever writing them and Tom is acting different and more suspicious with each day. As James tries to finish his story, he discovers nothing is as it seems as the story ends with a surprise twist!
This is a student film that I will be working on to achieve my diploma in screen and media. It will be a small crew which means I'm looking forward to some creative input from both cast and crew. I really want to have a positive and creative atmosphere on set. The films genre is a thriller however, there are some comedic moments in the script as well.
The production dates are March 24th-26th and the shoot will be located in Newtown, New South Wales. Two lead actors required only.

James, the author - Lead role

James is in his early twenties, with some stubble. He is obsessive, controlling, usually very frustrated, charismatic. He started writing as a way to express his frustration but now it has taking a serious toll on him as becomes exhausted and bewildered from it. When he is in the presence of his room mate, Tom, he can sometimes put on a facade of calmness to make sure Tom never really knows what hes thinking. As the story progresses and tension grows, he becomes anxious, crazed and unhinged.

Males, aged 20 to 24 from New South Wales, Australia

Tom - the room mate. Supporting character

Tom is laid back, stupid, loud, obnoxious, messy. Always causing trouble for his room mate, James. Towards the end of the film, we learn that this is all a facade so that he is able to mastermind the plot of James' story without ever arousing suspicion. At the end of the film, we see that Tom is actually very intelligent, witty, evil, and the true mastermind of this story. Even his stance and mannerisms change.
He's a quirky character that ends up having the last laugh.
