We are shooting a student, short film that is an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Henry IV.

This will be a 10 minute short film.

The synopsis of the film is that it’s a Comedy, where Susie is a successful, but, divorced single parent of three children. Her divorce, along with the death of her mother, has created a separation between her and her father, Neil. Their relationship takes a further toll with Susie suspicious of Neil’s neighbour and friend, Ariana, whom she feels has a closer bond with Neil than her own.

We will be holding auditions on the 15th of March in Edinburgh.

We plan on shooting the actual film throughout the 8th-10th of April.

Susie

Susie, 38, is a successful real estate agent. She is divorced and a single-parent of three children. Susie is a strict but loving parent who sometimes struggles finding the balance between making things roll smoothly, and turning everything into duties. Susie hates Neil’s neighbour Ariana, who she feels is a sad failure in life and suspiciously close to Neil. After her mother’s death and her divorce Susie went through a hard time and did not keep in touch with Neil as much as she should have.

Ariana

Ariana, 27, is Neil’s neighbour. She refuses to grow up and is only working part-time in a pet shop. Yet Ariana thinks she leads a cool lifestyle that others cannot comprehend. Neil is a sort of a mentor to her, and she is blind to Neil’s rudeness, often because she is heavily high. Ariana dislikes Susie, because she wants to keep Neil all to herself and looks down on Susie’s normal way of life.

Ariana is Italian, so being able to portray an Italian accent would be a plus, but not necessary.
