The story will bounce between past and present as the friends sit around a dinner table and reminisce about the good old days, which helps James move through the five stages of grief.

Character 1 Age: 
18-26
Character 1 Description: 
James is a closed off, but well meaning, small town guy that has since adapted to city life. He gets a feeling of nostalgia coming back to his hometown, but also a sense that he doesn’t really belong there anymore. James had not talked to Aleks for several years since he moved away because of a fight they had. He feels guilty about not speaking to Aleks, and cannot get the memory of their fight out of his head. He begins the short in the denial stages of grief, whereas all of his other friends have had time to progress through to acceptance. During the dinner, as they all discuss Aleks and their memories, James progresses through the 5 stages of grief until he finally comes to terms with his friend’s death.

When James moved away to the city, he bailed on the plans he and Aleks had to move out together, which caused a rift in their friendship. Aleks was forced to follow in his father’s footsteps to join their small town’s big industry: logging.
Character 4 Name: 
PARKER

18-26

Synopsis: 
Layabout is a short film revolving around the living arrangement between a young man named Riley and his father Marcel, after choosing to leave the Jehovah's Witness religion he was raised in by his mother. Riley has recently moved into Marcel's one bedroom apartment in the city, and is spending nearly all his time doing nothing for the first time in his life. He is living the life of someone who has been absent from any real contact with the outside world other than public school. He lays around playing video games, eating very poorly (much like his father), and watching films--Until his mother calls with a request. She asks him to go to a special event that Jehovah's Witnesses have every year, "The Memorial". Knowing the gravity of this event, Riley struggles with the guilt surrounding his choice to leave, and his choice to go to the Memorial. All the while, his father Marcel has thinned the ice underneath Riley's stay with him, urging him to take charge of his life, and to stop wasting time living a sedentary lifestyle. The plot revolves around the Riley's veiled guilt and lack of respect for both Marcel and Tamara's ways of life. Eventually, Riley's issues with inaction are raised by Marcel, and another choice is brought to the forefront.

Audition Date(s): 
February 2nd / 3rd 2019
Character 1 Name: 
Riley
Character 1 Age: 
19
Character 1 Description: 
Caucasian/ Part Métis. Riley is a young man, newly self-excommunicated from his family and entire community he was raised in. He was raised as part of the cult/religion Jehovah's Witnesses. For the first time ever, he is staying with his father, who had never truly been a strong part of his life. Riley, despite being raised inside the cult bubble, has an affinity for the outside world, and the love of the culture his mother was apart of when she was younger. Partially a mama's boy. Loves video games now that he's able to play them, and his favourite music is currently The Stone Roses, New Order, and Black Flag. He finds himself drawn to typical representations of emotionally troubled young men. A part of him relates to the character Donnie Darko--more than he'd like to admit. Riley grew up finding reasons upon reasons to dislike his father. From lack of financial support, to their clear differences in masculinity, and views on life. Childhood memories are sweet, but not so much in adulthood. His choice in living with him is a choice of flight, but also one made with a kernel of hope within it. Riley isn't sure whether or not a relationship with his father is possible...LEAD
Character 2 Age: 
50
Character 2 Name: 
Marcel
Character 2 Description: 
Caucasian/ Part Métis. Marcel has been a perpetual bachelor ever since his divorce with Riley's mother. He runs his own single person company, doing HVAC and plumbing. He is Métis, and is the baby of eight siblings. Both Marcel, and Riley's mother Tamara were raised in the Jehovah's Witness religion. His favourite songs are Here I Go Again and Is This Love by Whitesnake. Sylvester Stallone is a partial role model for him. He has a very specific and peculiar way of carrying himself physically, and in conversation. Something that may be a holdover from a certain type of 80's male, one very much in line with popular representations of heightened masculinity in media at that time. His Métis side has been nearly entirely suppressed by the religion. There is a loneliness to his existence, that does cause some discomfort. A fact he understands, but doesn't act on. He deeply cares for Riley, but has a very hard time understanding him due to their lack of contact, and his own complications with his father.
