Project Synopsis
Measure is an experimental short film utilizing Shakespearean text, choral practices and narrative cinematography. It follows Grace, Richard, and Levi; who discover a perceived "wickedness", a flaw within themselves. Perceived in the sense that objectively, there is nothing wrong with them, only the perception they apply upon themselves via peers, society, and oneself. The film will intersect these three stories via match cuts and vocal interchange.
Additional Comments & Safety Protocol: 

We have a COVID-19 Safety Plan to comply with provincial and regional protocols which will be approved by ActSafe. Actors will be required to wear their masks at all times, except during performance. In between scenes and during lunch, actors will have a safe place to rest and practice safe distancing.

Description
Levi is assigned male at birth and struggling with their gender identity. After suppressing their emotions for years, they awaken in the middle of the night and confront their thoughts. We strongly encourage actors who are trans and non-binary to apply. A strong sense for Shakespearean text is an asset.
