Background Artists/Extras Wanted for Supervillain Short Film

Manchester, UK
Listed by View details

Once he was on top of the world; the Supervillain who finally defeated all the Heroes and reigned supreme with his army of loyal subjects.

Now, he eats microwave Shepherd’s Pie and gets drunk off supermarket Vodka.

Arrogant, pompous, belligerent and psychotic, El Cara Calavera (Or Skull Face as everyone else calls him) is unable to leave his past behind. Still living in the glory days of the height of his villainy, he is frustrated, depressed and suffering from adjustment issues relating to his mundane and tedious existence. His powers have faded, his legion have abandoned him.

The Downward Spiral is the second short film by Nine Demons Films. It is a study of depression, hopelessness and mid-life crises, set in the backdrop of the world's greatest (ex) supervillain.
