Four Actors Wanted for Roles in Tragedy Short Film

Four Actors Wanted for Roles in Tragedy Short Film

London, UK
Listed by View details

"After his husband’s death, Luke encounters Charles - a ghost. When realising his ex never loved him, Luke decides to end his life in order to be with Charles forever."

Even though suicide is implied at the end of the film, no scene actually depicts any graphic content nor it's the idea of the film. The final scene involves the character grabbing a knife and then turning off the light, for which nothing is shown afterwards except the silhouette of the other main character. That is the only reference to suicide. There are references to death since two of the characters are ghosts, but that's as far as it goes.

This short film has been written by me for our final year project at University.
It is a tragedy, although that is subject to change, which will be screened at festivals once it's finished.
