Four Actors Required for Dramatic/Psychological Student Web Series
The project is a 4-5 episode web series featuring a group of four teenagers/young adults suffering from severe mental disabilities. Schizophrenia, Manic depression, Dissociative Identity Disorder and sociopathy. Wanting to avoid being committed the four of them are united by a mutual desire to lead normal lives. They form a society to try and handle their conditions by leaning on one another. But their illnesses quickly complicate matters. They find themselves tied to a building mystery narrative around the death of someone close to the group. The remaining series is a race to attempt to salvage their fracturing psyche's and discover the true extent of their afflictions.
Please note: The metal health issues in this series will be displayed as accurately and respectfully as possible. We're going to great lengths to ensure that. We will also go to trouble to show the positives of having such conditions in order to give the series a unique aspect. I understand the subject of mental health can be taboo for some people. Which is why me and my team are going to be careful to promote accuracy above all else.
Audition / Rehearsal / Production datesThe Auditions will be held in early February 2019. With rehearsals beginning in early march and Production beginning in Late March/Early April.
