This project is a surrealist drama short film for Griffith University's Graduate Slate.

Will, a high school student, discusses his hesitance to start a relationship with his current love interest, Lana, because she’s not his ideal woman and his mother argues that if Will follows the ideals he’s learnt from his estranged fathers self-help books, he’ll end up just like him. Later that night, he experiences a lucid dream, within which his father, John, encourages him to embrace his ideals. Will is forced to reconsider his idealistic belief's on love, family values, and the law of attraction.

Will Benjamin

Will is smart, set in his ways, and convinced that he knows exactly where he wants his life to go. He will only watch romantic comedies if he believes there is a message he deems applicable to real life. He feels resentment towards his father, but also can’t help but admire him for the successful career and wealthy lifestyle he’s created for himself in Europe. He loves his mother, but is frustrated with their poor financial situation, created by her over dependency on Will’s father’s income.

Male, aged 18 to 23

Applications closed 1 May 2019.

Kathryn Benjamin

Kathryn is an incredibly generous woman. Her current goal is to ensure Will graduates from high school, is able to sustain himself once he moves out and ends up nothing like his father. Once this has happened, she plans to begin dating again with hopes of finding a man to grow old with.

Female, aged 35 to 50

Applications closed 1 May 2019.

John Benjamin

Within the film, the only appearances of John that occur in real time are formed by Will’s opinions, so therefore these projections are completely biased in favour of Will’s views on John. Within the context of his son’s mind, John was wrong for leaving their family to pursue his career in writing self help books. However, John is still living a highly successful life, which is very appealing to Will.

Male, aged 35 to 50

Applications closed 1 May 2019.

Lana Jacobs

Lana is an intelligent, opinionated, high school student. She loves to watch romantic comedies and sees no harm in enjoying a film purely for enjoyment. She was extremely happy when Will asked her out for their first date, but since then has been unsure of how much Will may be interested in her.

Female, aged 18 to 23

Applications closed 1 May 2019.

Woman

Just as John is only shown in real time as a creation of Will’s imagination and ideals, so is Woman. She isn’t seen by the audience at any point across the entire film. The closest we come to seeing her in the film is through a rough, undetailed sketch of her in the painting in Will’s dream. She has a gorgeous tone of voice, however the content of what she has to say is empty, as she possesses no thoughts of her own.

Female, aged 18 to 30

Applications closed 1 May 2019.
