Project Synopsis
During lockdown, a couple’s relationship is tested when one of them comes down with COVID-19 symptoms.
Additional Comments & Safety Protocol: 

- We are only looking for actors in the SAME BUBBLE for Jade and Markus, as those characters will be in close contact with one another. Must be comfortable with light PDA (holding hands, leaning in close, sitting close together.)
- The safety of our cast and crew is our top priority. “In Sickness and In Health” will be implementing a multitude of safety measures including social distancing, wearing masks at all times, having hand sanitiser and cleaning supplies available, and frequently cleaning surfaces and equipment. We have a comprehensive COVID-19 Safety Plan developed with BCIT’s Occupational Health and Safety department. Let us know if you would like to see it.
- This film takes place during our current situation, so you would be wearing masks during some scenes.
- Please only apply if you live in Metro Vancouver, we do not support travelling between different British Columbian regions for this film.
- "In Sickness & In Health" is a drama and will have a runtime of around 10 minutes.

Character 1
Early to Mid 20s
Open Ethnicity. Jade is an artist who works from home, running her small business. She follows her heart and what she believes is right. Jade is loving until her moral lines are crossed, and just wants what’s best for Markus.
Character 2
Mid to Late 20s
Open Ethnicity. Markus works a typical 9-5. He is used to being in control, having everything go his way and according to plan. He is kind, but also very stubborn. He is looking forward to proposing to Jade, but things go awry.
