I am currently working on a short Grad film. At the moment we are looking for minor roles as well as extras to cast in our film. Here is some info about the story and character as well as info about shooting dates.
A technical fault in Pleasure Hotel’s matching system finds Hilda, a firm follower in the system, re-matched with Hugo, a forbidden lover from her past. Through this, Hilda must make a choice: tread dangerous waters with her old flame or move forward with the modern world.
Further Story Background:
“Pleasure Hotel” communicates the death of romance by embellishing its present status and bringing it to a dystopian setting.
Pleasure Hotel is set in a post-war society, in which a paranoid government attempts to stifle conflict and war by adopting a certain mantra: We are born alone, live alone and die alone. People live suppressed of emotion, living in solitude to merely exist. Still, one primal interaction remains, and that is – sex, used merely for pleasure and pro-creational purposes only. Citizens convene in buildings known as ‘Pleasure Hotels’ in which they are randomly matched with a partner. Relationships are illegal, as is any outside interaction with those encountered inside Pleasure Hotel.
