The Story: In a post climate apocalypse, the last livable corners of the planet are massively overpopulated. Governments regulate life and death. Suicide is normalized and monetized. In a world that values death over life, you can now negotiate a price for your own brutal murder and bequest that money to the ones you love.
In a last ditch effort to save his dying daughter, Millard Warren has made this decision today.
The Roles: Officiator – Female, 20s-30s, Sarcastic, sassy and has a style all her own. The death officiator is a strong willed woman who works a low wage government job (think jaded DMV employee / security guard). She has little power in her personal life, but is more than happy to put someone in their place at work when they step out of line. Her job has desensitized her to violence, but as strong as she is, Millard’s death affects her profoundly. It brings back memories of her own father and the same sacrifice he made for his family.
1 virtual table read, 1 rehearsal and 1 full day shoot – $250
*This part will need to have a costume fitting.
Millard – Male 30s-50s, Quiet, nervous and plain. Millard is the protagonist of this film. He almost never speaks as he goes through a range of emotions while awaiting his brutal but consensual murder. Fear, sadness, and nervousness jolts through his system as he tries to steel all these emotions and remind himself he is here today to save his young daughter’s life. 1 virtual table read, 1 rehearsal and 1 full day shoot – $250
Mr. Pierce – Male 20s, entitled, loud and obnoxious. Mr. Pierce lives an influencer lifestyle. He thinks he is much cooler than he actually is. He is rich with rich friends and lives a lavish lifestyle. But deep down under his frat boy attitude — he’s a closet psychopath. 1 virtual table read, 1 rehearsal and 1 full day shoot – $250
