Mother and Child for supporting roles in comedy/drama short in Southampton
‘After years of pushing people away with his narcissism, infamous street magician come con-artist, Kassius Black, is faced with the threat of eviction by his frustrated mentor, unless he finally cleans up his act.’
The film aims to be a quirky, quick-witted comedy following the seemingly untouchable, but ultimately self-destructive path of Kassius Black, brought about by his narcissistic tendencies and old-fashioned philosophy. Whilst having fun with the lighthearted visual gags and absurdist nature of the film, we also wish to contrast this with the gritty reality of Kassius' actions and viewpoints, thematically tackling the negative consequences of narcissism and toxic masculinity.
The film is a graduate project with ambitious scope, led by a team of talented young filmmakers. We are looking for eager and talented supporting artists to help bring this quirky project to life, and to share the messages of the film.
We're looking for a Mother and Child to act alongside our two leads who play a Magic Shop owner and employee. The Mother and Child will be in the magic shop, having magic tricks performed to them - this interaction is vital to seeing key elements of the protagonist's characteristics!
