Short Film will be 4 - 5 minutes in length.

Logline:
A once happily married man who was subject to a painful experimentation has been separated from his wife and society and is now regarded as a monster.

Synopsis:
Monster, freak, abomination, this is John. But John wasn't always this monster, he was
once successful, married and happy. It's only when an unfortunate turn of events occurred that John was separated from society. Rejected from his wife, John now watches over her at night dwelling on the past. It's only when he realizes after seeking out his supposed revenge that the he really has become the monster that his wife sees.

The environment in which the short film will be shot will have a very dark, sad undertone. The settings for the short film are:
.John's old house where his wife (Alice) lives alone
.Street alleyway where John now resides
.On the street, John lurking about etc.
.Park, where John stalks Max to sort out his supposed revenge
.Hospital (an area that looks similar to a hospital)
.Blank Laboratory, where John was 'experimented' on

The short film will be produced in a modular fashion rather than linear making the viewer have to really think. (Movies such as Memento and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind do this)

Film detail:
The short film in linear fashion:
John wakes up in a blank laboratory unknown as to how he got there, his attacker (Max) enters the room and injects John with a syringe containing unknown fluid. John thinks that this is his experimentation.
(This will be shot in first person as it will be displayed as a flash back)

John is thrown out of a van onto the street at night, a car pulls up, a man gets out and helps, John blacks out. John is now in the hospital and wakes up in a hospital bed.
(This will be shot in first person as it will be displayed as a flash back)

John is now out of the hospital and goes to see Alice his wife at his old house. She rejects John for being a monster.

John lives in a dark street alleyway, this is where it is revealed that his face has been wrecked. He watches his wife through his old house window every night.

John goes to watch his wife again one night but realizes a second car in the driveway, he discovers that Max (his supposed attacker) is forming a relationship with her. John notices a strange ring on Max's finger which triggers a flashback of his supposed experimentation.

John stalks and kills Max with bitter consequences. On Max's death John will realize that his memory is delusional and that Max was in fact his doctor at the hospital trying to save him.


Actors do not need to worry about getting hurt, no one will be actually getting injected with a syringe.

Job payment

This job is unpaid


John

John is mostly hidden during the film, hiding in the shadows, keeping away from society. He is very depressed, angry and heart broken over his recent separation to his wife due to his experimentation resulting in his face being 'wrecked'. John's negative emotions aren't really focussed on the fact that his face is wrecked, it is more of that he has lost his wife and things can't go back to how they were. Most of John's dialogue is voice over

Alice

Alice is John's wife but she has rejected him for being a monster due to his face being mutated. She is very depressed about the situation and finds it very hard to reject John but she just can't see her self with someone who looks like he does. Alice has a really impacting and sad scene at the start of the film trying to get John out of her life.

Female, aged 18 to 28

  • Acting experience: No previous acting experience, Previous unpaid speaking roles, Previous paid speaking roles
  • Ethnicity: White / Caucasian

Max

Max's role ties the whole film together. He is John's doctor in the hospital but is also forming a relationship with Alice after she separated from John. John thinks Max is his attacker whom experimented on him, this leading to Max being brutally killed by John at the end of the short film. Max isn't depressed or sad but isn't happy due to his job and what he has to deal with, he is very caring and kind though.
