*ALL CREW HAVE CORONAVIRUS BASIC AWARENESS ON PRODUCTION TRAINING (Screen skills)*

*THIS IS A STUDENT FEATURE SHORT FILM*

We are looking for talents to play lead/ supporting roles in our feature short film 'Kira?'.

The film is a psychological drama about the alienation of Kira.

Kira is very insecure, this has been caused by her seeing how ‘perfect’ her peers lives are. As a result of this she tries her best to change the way she behaves in any way, shape or form in order for her to create a life almost identical to 'Ellie', someone she sees as flawless. 'Kira' is beyond desperate to make a ‘better’ life for herself that she will go to extreme measures to get there; even if it means losing sense of her own identity along the way. (Kira’s progression into Ellie is to be seen as bringing forth a negative impact onto her psyche and in conclusion takes her down the dangerous path of obsession and social media)

Ellie: Ellie is seen to have everything, however she is barely coping and is using social media to get by and appear as though everything is fine. After her parents divorce at the beginning of her university course, Ellie’s life is continuing to crumble.

Auditions will be online along with rehearsals if you are accepted.

Character details:
At the start of the film, Kira's outfits are a little outdated, though as the film progresses, she begins to dress more like Ellie (More details of costume will be given at a later date).
