Synopsis: 
I’m Dead, Bro is a short film about two social media influencers, DAVIS and STU, who, after witnessing a murder, are being chased down by an unknown assailant. While on the run, Stu has the only working phone and Davis is desperate to call for help. However, rather than immediately calling the cops, Stu goes full vlogger mode and live-streams the situation. Things take a turn for the worse when Stu disappears and Davis must act quickly to find help.

Synopsis: 
We are film students currently attending Vancouver Film School, and we are in the process of casting our short film entitled ‘The Bridge’. This high-concept allegorical story, greatly influenced by Noir and German expressionist films from the 1920s and ‘30s, will have only one word of dialogue and will be performed through body language and emotion. The roles we are looking to cast are ‘Governing Forces’, personifications of external influences on the life of our protagonist (i.e. Community, Religion, Ego, Government etc.). We are interested in performers who are 35 and older.
Submission Instructions: 

If you are interested, feel free to send an email to TheBridgeShortFilm@gmail.com and, since these are non-speaking roles, pleases include headshots, your reel, and/or a video audition featuring you performing a monologue of your choice under 3 minutes.

He doesn't believe in magic, since what possibly can it / will it bring to him & others like him. Aka majority. He is not in touch with spirits, nor does he believe in them. His lies are aimed to open himself to them & rob them of their power. He will not reveal his true face, but she is witter, smarter & quicker. Once she glimpses into his true face, inevitably, he is left without a choice but to vanish such knowledge out of her memory.
