Project Synopsis
Matt, a struggling all-Canadian golden boy, and the ghost of his dead best friend Noah, feel as though they have missed out on the best of their youth. They then devise a plan to spend their summer trying to complete a list of things they consider to be quintessential to the teenage experience, with increasing difficulty.
Additional Information & Safety Protocols: 

We will follow any provincial COVID-19 protocol in place at the time of filming. Our current plan is a fully vaccinated cast and crew with regular sanitization of gear and encouraged masks. No nudity or stunts required.

Character 1
Matt
Age
15-18
Gender
Male
Description
Matt is a brooding and repressed teenage boy. Seemingly happy to onlookers, he enjoys company of Noah, the ghost of his dead best friend, as he has isolated himself socially. Despite being best friends with Noah since their early teens, he knows that at some point he has to move on. Must be willing to temporarily dye hair (can use a wash-out hair chalk if preferred by actor). Age is flexible.
Character 2
Noah
Age
15-18
Gender
Male
Description
Noah is an extroverted and warm teenage boy. He enjoys making Matt laugh, and overcompensates for being dead with his sense of humour and almost overbearing affection. He feels a lot of guilt about his death, and is constantly trying to enjoy his ghosthood. Age is flexible.

Gender
Female
Description
Alice is a kind girl who cares about Matt despite not being super close with him. Age is flexible.
