Open auditions for local short film 'Reverie'

Open auditions for local short film 'Reverie'

Growing up, people tend to go through a lot of phases when it comes to their future career aspirations. I myself went through astronaut, paleontologist, magician, doctor, marine biologist, Air Force pilot. Lots of these are pretty standard for kids. Another one: actor. And lots of people end up pursuing that. And lots of people who maybe still wish they could be actors haven't done anything with that dream.

But it's never too late, and the indie film community is now reaching out to you – yes, YOU – with an opportunity to give it a thought.

Local filmmaker Allan Day, whose short film Gloria Mundi won the award for Best Plot/Concept at this year's Floyd Film Festival (he now has a fancy plastic Oscar sitting on his DVD shelf), is currently casting for his upcoming project, a short film entitled Reverie.

Reverie tells the story of Jim, an aspiring writer whose work is constantly interrupted by the memories of two previous relationships and dreams of a fantasy girl. Auditions will be held at the main branch of the Louisville Free Public Library, located at 301 York Street, on Sunday, October 20, from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. The following roles will be cast:

+Jim: An aspiring writer with a fair amount of subconscious self-doubt. Generally quiet, spends a lot of time in his own head; has friends but likes to keep to himself.
+Woman 1: An imagined manifestation of a previous girlfriend of Jim's. Outspoken, glib, and sarcastic; smokes a lot of pot.
+Woman 2: An imagined manifestation of a more recent ex-girlfriend. She is sad; she feels as if Jim was The One and she lost him unfairly. Grounded in reality, but hopeful for better things for herself.
+Woman 3: A fantasy girl, appears in Jim's dreams, always smiling, playful, romantic..
+Shauna: A painter.
+Julia: Shauna's girlfriend.

Complete details can be found at the audition's Facebook event page. Feel free to contact Mr. Day with any questions, through Facebook or the contact page.
