ROLES: 3 Females, 1 Male Voice Over. (Unpaid)
Story: Leo V a retired 27 year old once the critically lauded guitarist for a successful band has left Melbourne and international touring to live anonymously in Vienna — yet somehow a legendary Heminwayesque author has sent him a very authentic looking letter asking for a meeting in Melbourne. The rub is: this author has not been seen nor heard of since June 1973.

Shoot will take place in the Melbourne area. I’d like to start rehearsals by about March 14th for a quick turnaround, finishing shooting in early April.
My name is Constantine – I am directing and playing Leo V – which makes me a glutton for punishment. I started shooting a version of the script a year ago, but have started again after numerous changes and getting access to some way nicer camera lenses.
The visual style of the film is going to be very stylized, theatrical glam-metal esque costumes for Leo for example, and sets which are stolen straight out of Bergman’s Cries and Whispers. However I’m hoping for a naturalistic, improvisational performance style.

EVA

2-3 Shooting Days.
Eva is a very talented painter who is ridden with insecurity about herself & her work.
She’s come to Vienna because she is escaping her old life, her old home and seeking distance from either her old self or perhaps certain people in her life? Whatever the reason it is this person or peoples who have laboured her with this insecurity.
Where she an Leo are alike is in their cloistering — Leo came to Vienna to get away from famedom. She envies Leo’s self-assuredness,

SARA

3-4 shooting days
Sara is one of Leo’s oldest friends. Unambitious, friendly, emotional. Once they were roommates at “The Grotto”, a share house populated by all their stoner friends and not really a good environment for anyone with ambition. About 4years ago, when his band was just starting to get big Leo left for good — Sara still lives there.
When Leo makes a unexpected return she confuses her envy of his life with romantic interest with unhappy results.

“The Narrator”

English speaking but regal Austrian accent.
I’m not about to cast the narrator right now, as your services wont’ be needed until well into post-production, but I’m keen to find someone who can do an authentic Austrian or at least Southern German accent who probably learned English at Cambridge.
