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

The synopsis of the film is that Peter is a successful, but, divorced single parent of three children. His divorce, along with the death of his mother, has created a seperation between him and his father, Neil. Their relationship takes a further toll with Peter suspicious of Neil’s neighbour and friend, Ariana, whom he feels has a closer bond with Neil than his own.

We will be shooting a scene for this film on the 21st of February.

There is also the possibility that we may shoot the entirety of this 10 minute short film in the coming months, so you would be among the first choices if it goes through.

Expenses will be paid.

Ariana

Ariana, 27, is a girl who refused to grow up and is now jobless and stuck with Neil, yet thinking she leads a cool lifestyle that others cannot comprehend. Neil is a sort of an mentor to her, and she is blind to Neil’s rudeness, often because she is high on weed. Ariana dislikes Peter, because she feels like she has a deeper connection with Neil than Peter, and that Peter with his well-trained children are trying to take Neil away from her, and Neil is the only thing Ariana has in her life.
