*Important: Remember this is going to be a HORROR FILM*

1. (STRONG LEAD ROLE WITH LEADERSHIP VIBE) : “The only way we’re getting out of here alive is if everybody sticks with me… Let’s go!” and “I don’t care what you guys do but I’m getting the HELL out of here… ”

5. (Serious) (This character could ‘warn’ others as to the serious threats posed by taking a certain path / course of action. They are quirky and a bit bizarre, with an otherworldly mystical vibe. Maybe a certain facial tick / etc) “You… really don’t want to go there. You should believe me… I have first hand experience.” and “I wouldn’t take it so lightly if I were you.. I’ve seen this before.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Having participated in these contests in the past we are attempting to prepare potential CAST and a CREW, as well as a few critical locations, in order to be prepared for any type of short film that has to be produced.

CAST will need to commit to availability for Oct 21st (as early as midnight the morning of..) through 3pm Oct 22nd.

CREW will need to commit for 20-22, depending on their role. For example: Someone who works in Post Production on the film only needs to be there starting the 21st, whereas a Writer needs to be there from the 20th, the beginning.

The most important part of CAST and CREW is having them on STANDBY so that when the TEAM LEADER selects the film genre on Friday night, they can write a story based off the talented CAST members who have agreed to be available Oct 21 & 22nd. The CREW will need to be on standby, as well, for differing periods of time depending on their roles.
