Production Description: Casting 'The Horned Man', an independent 10-15 minute student film - a psychological horror exploring the impact of social pressures on men to be a 'real man', and the toll it takes on both men and women.

Production: Unemployed, depressed and ashamed that he isn't living up to preconceived notions of masculine 'success' as a financial provider, a dominant figure in his relationship with HANNAH, and a father - GARETH begins to feel watched and judged as he struggles to find a job.
Under the influence of a horrific, primeval figure of masculine strength - THE GREEN MAN - Gareth's reflection begins to act independently, living out toxic fantasies of masculine dominance over women. As these fantasies bleed out of the mirror and into the real world, affecting Gareth's real-world behaviour, Hannah begins to wonder if she might be in danger.

GARETH

He is not particularly outgoing, is emotionally fragile and gives up easily. He tries to do the right thing, and he loves his wife Hannah; but he is quick to take offense, and nurses his grievances against those who - in his mind - are keeping him down. Initially a relatable everyone figure, Gareth is like every other man trying to feel in control of his life despite his powerlessness in the modern world.

Male, aged 24 to 36

Applications closed 28 June 2021.

HANNAH

HANNAH is a young, confident and successful career woman, a junior solicitor who takes her job seriously and has ambitions for her future. She has ambitions for her family, too; however two major hurdles threaten to derail those plans. She and Gareth are unable to have children together, so she has convinced Gareth they should adopt a child and they are currently going through the long, complex process of adoption.

Female, aged 24 to 36

Applications closed 28 June 2021.

THE GREEN MAN

The GREEN MAN is in excellent physical shape; strong physical presence essential. The GREEN MAN is a monster - the physical manifestation of toxic ideals of masculinity as strength and dominance. It is an ancient hunter, a creature of the forest, armed with a spear. It is strong, decisive, in charge, financially successful, sexually dominant, physically powerful - and it has only contempt for men who fail to live up to those attributes.

Male, aged 20 to 39

Applications closed 28 June 2021.

WOMAN IN OFFICE/LIFT

A young professional woman in human resources or recruitment, responsible for taking Gareth to his first interview in some time. She is outgoing and warm, and Gareth imagines that her friendliness might lead to something more - leading him to fantasise about a physical encounter in the enclosed lift that takes them up to the interview room. Sensing the change in Gareth's mood, she is scared and deeply unsettled by the change in him and his behaviour.

Female, aged 20 to 29
