Death is a Trip is a short film by students of the Evergreen State College. This dark comedy follows Mac, a young, restless woman who dies too young and in the intermediate period of being a ghost, is helped along by Candy, a mysterious and dorky supernatural guide who tries to convince Mac to accept her own death so that she may pass on from this world.
1. We have every important crew position filled with responsible, dedicated people. Director, Actor, Art Director, DP, 1st AD, grips, etc are accounted for. We are a legit operation with a nice little budget from the school. The only downside is that this is, for many of us, the first time working on a set so it please keep that in mind.
2. If selected, you will have a film credit and we will provide you with a DVD and/or digital copy of the movie to you at no extra expense.
Character Breakdown / Project Needs
6 Women, 1 Man
Mac: Young woman in her Late teens/early 20's. Mac is smart, sarcastic, logical and unhappy. She's waiting for someone, anyone, to give her permission to do something interesting or original with her life but dies before she realizes that she doesn't need it from anybody. Mac is in constant denial about her death and even when she understands that she has died she does not accept it fully. This role is going to be the most demanding in regards to time. Since she is the protagonist and in every scene the actress will need to be available all three days of shooting. Comedic experience preferred but not required.
Candy: Young woman, any race, in her mid to late 20s or early 30s. Candy is a fun-loving, dorky, spirit sent by "Them" to help Mac accept her fate and help her come to the other realm. Candy is very patient and forgiving. She understands that someone accepting their mortality takes time. Candy is an old spirit but is eternally young at heart. Again,an intensive role. She is in almost every scene and would need to be available all three days. Comedic experience preferred but not required.
Pamela: Young woman, any race, in her late teens/early 20s. Pamela is young, dumb, and is just concerned with having a good time. She doesn't think any of her actions can have serious consequences which is why she is responsible for Mac's death. She has one line and is in two scenes so the actress must be available for at least two of the days of shooting.
Catherine: Middle aged woman in her 40s or 50s (same race as Mac). Catherine is Mac's mother. She's a good person who loved her daughter and who did the best she could but is a little airheaded and self absorbed. She didn't understand Mac as she was but saw who she could have been. She also has a crush on her minister. Is in two scenes and would only need to be present one day of shooting. Comedic experience preferred but not required. Will be required to kiss.
Mary: A woman, any race, in her mid 20s to her early 30s. Mary is a spirit unable to accept her death. By not fulling realizing that has died, Marry has gone insane over the decades of isolation that comes with being able to see and speak to others but not have them notice you. In only one scene so the actress will only be required to be present one day.
Shirley: Middle Aged woman, any race. Catherine's best friend. Shirley is there to comfort Catherine as she deals with Mac's death. Shirley is a straight character in a world full of wacky ones. Only in one scene and will only need to be there for one day of shooting.
The Minister: Middle aged man of God, any race. The minister has long been serving the town Mac resides in and has developed a crush on Catherine. Only in one scene and the actor will only need to present one day. Comedic experience preferred but not required.(Will be required to kiss).
August 5th, Evergreen State College.
