Female lead needed for a YouTube exclusive short film.

'The Demonic Rising' is a prequel to the crime/thriller YouTube mini-series, 'Drake: The Awakening.' It follows the backstories of Eric and Tony. Former partners, who realign to take down a very familiar yet unexpected foe.

The character in question that potential actors will portray is Alexa (Lexi), a former wife to mob boss Tony, and mother of a young child called Lucas. During the film, she will go through a dramatic shift as she becomes taken over by an ancient entity that uses her as a host to continue its demonic plans. *THIS PART WILL REQUIRE YOU TO ACT A CHILD MURDER SCENE WHICH SOME ACTORS MAY FIND DISTRESSING* She is blunt, a wind-up merchant, loud, and firey.

The film will be exclusive to YouTube as it is a passion project, which attributes to an already existent storyline that takes place on that platform.

I (Travis) have been a focal point of this story prior, but now take a back seat to Co-Direct and Write the prequel. I have been a content creator since 2012 creating things such as short films, vlogs, music videos, and documentaries. I have also participated in acting during my school run between Year 6 - Year 13, which has led me to appear as an extra in BBC's 'Happy Valley' and Channel 4's 'Ackley Bridge.' I currently attend the University of Huddersfield as a 2nd year Creative Media and Production student, further developing my 9 years of self-taught filming and editing skills in a professional academic environment.

We do not expect any drastic change in your appearance for the role. The role will be solely judged on 2 conditions:
Condition 1: Skill.
Condition 2: Directorial Vision.
Both of which can be affected by one another. To put it easily...IT'S ANYONE'S GAME! Give it a shot!

The most graphic thing involved will be the mentioned CM scene and fake blood. If you can handle that and are intrigued, get involved and audition.

StarNow note for talent: Please note the Advertiser has indicated this production contains strong themes including horror/violence. Applicants may wish to clarify details regarding these themes with the advertiser before attending an audition.
