Leading Roles - Short Film - Comedy
“Red-Eye to Reykjavik”
Short Film / Comedy film (with dance scene)
This is a 10-minute zippy dialogue comedy short film by director Kirk Demorest (1.3 Million Youtube views). The last film Demorest made got 100,000 Youtube views in less than a month. This film is an incredible show piece for actors with comedic talent. The script is super fun and snappy. The production will be created to broadcast high definition standards.
Here are some behind-the-scenes from past films so you can get an idea of how we work.
Roles to be Cast
DUSTIN (Lead), 32, is a friendly and likable type (quirkily handsome
too). He has the build of someone who works at a desk. He’s on a comically desperate mission to take a random stranger woman to Iceland to fulfill a prophecy he had. Think enthusiastic, driven, goofy, and unapologetic. (Sides highlighted in aqua)
AMY (Lead), 32, is bubbly, smart, and a little gullible. She is super likable and carefree with an upbeat and approachable demeanor. She’s got fun way about her. She is one of the three leads in the story. She is the counterpart to her best friend, Lauren, who is more dry and pragmatic. (Sides highlighted in pink)
LAUREN (Lead) , 32, is appealing and approachable but a master of stinging sarcasm. She is the pragmatic counterpart to her bubbly best friend, Amy. She has a trim build and will have a dance number in the film. Her chemistry with Amy and Dustin is paramount. (Sides highlighted in yellow)
