Project Synopsis
When Loewen, a disorderly university student, discovers his life has a musical score to it which only he can hear, he goes in search of an infamous composer’s lost symphony to find out how it ends.
Additional Comments: 

This is not a Student Film, but a Capilano University alumni film.

Character 1
Loewen
Age
18-23
Gender
Male
Description
[Open Ethnicity] Loewen is a very passionate music student, who has a tendency to get distracted and rarely finishes what he starts. Loewen is in love with an anthropology student named Courtney and is composing a piece of music for her. But when the music starts to “write itself” - - and doesn’t stop - - Loewen begins to suspect a connection to an infamous lost symphony and goes on a quest to finish it. Loewen is passionate and well-meaning, but with a bit of a one track mind, and a tendency to get carried away in his daydreams. Ability to play the piano would be an asset, though not required.
Character 2
Courtney
Age
18-23
Gender
Female
Description
[Open Ethnicity] Courtney is an anthropology student; logical, responsible, and keenly aware of her family’s expectations. She is drawn to Loewen because he seems to possess none of these qualities, and a carefree attitude toward the things other people find stressful. But lately, Loewen’s eccentricities are beginning to wear on her. He always seems to have some-larger-than life excuse for standing her up. But this time, Courtney is intrigued by Loewen’s stories of a ghostly symphony - especially when paired with her own knowledge of the university’s past. Analytical, yet open-minded and curious, Courtney is searching for something that will add colour to her life.
Character 3
Stu
Age
18-23
Gender
Male
Description
[Open Ethnicity] Stu is an extremely intelligent, yet superstitious music student. Small in stature and not very socially aware, he is usually talking about some far-out theory that no one else understands. Stu’s very imaginative, and usually blurs the line between fact and fiction. He is known among his peers as the one who never seems to sleep or go home, and Loewen is one of his few close friends. Equally well read in Homer and Stan Lee, Stu believes the phantom soundtrack is calling Loewen to take up the mantle of the hero’s journey, and sees himself as the wise sage who will accompany Loewen on that quest.
Character 4
Bernie
Age
35 - 60
Gender
Male
Description
[Open Ethnicity] Bernie is a campus security guard and part-time jazz pianist in local clubs. He has a certain carelessness about him, yet he always seems to know what’s going on. This makes him a bit of an enigma among the students. Bernie was once a student at the university himself, and knows more about the phantom symphony than he lets on. Ability to play the piano would be an asset, though not required.
Character 5
Dave
Age
20 - 30
Gender
Male
Description
[Open Ethnicity] Dave is a dedicated new hire in the university’s campus security force. He’s conscious of the fact that he is the same age as many of the students, and is inclined to assert his authority in most situations. Yet the more Dave learns about the university - it’s myths and strange past - the more he starts to wonder whether he should have applied somewhere else.
