TITLE:
The Shriek (2020)

NOTE: LOOKING FOR YORKSHIRE BASED TALENTS.

GENRE: Horror/Thriller.
Feature student short film.
(2 cuts. Student cut and director's cut)

Main roles have been cast, currently searching for extras.
Work is expected to be only for a day for specific characters. To show the passage of time, photos of victims will be used in the film, with a worn and torn effect implying that these photos are old, holding a deep history.

SYNOPSIS:
Victoria Longwood, a young woman (AGE- early to late 20s)
who has recently taken the job as a night librarian in a small remote town.

With no family and friends, moving around isn't her problem. She arrives at this old library, that dates many years back to the period of the 1910-1930s.

The head guard, Bill Myers welcomes her and puts her to work sorting out documents from books, pictures and furniture. That’s her job, however, her night job is to make sure no one suspicious enters… until we later find out that she isn’t alone…

The library is haunted by a maid who used to work there called Agatha Roberts, otherwise known to the residents around as “The Shriek”. Reasons being upon why that is her nickname is of the horrific shrieking sound that can be heard time and time again in the library.

Throughout Victoria's first night shift, she encounters many frights created by the shriek and what turns from a simple night shift, turns into an all-out horror survival…

But the question to be asked, is everything as it seems? Or is Victoria telling the truth...

"The Shriek" (2020) is an ambitious project that we love due to the premise. a goal which we most definitely want to achieve is submitting to film festivals within the year of 2020, especially Leeds International Film Festival.

The location for the film is at Leeds Central Library, however, photos of the victims are to be placed within the location, these photos will also be used within the opening title sequence of the film.

Photos will be taken in Leeds mainly ether the Leeds City College university centre or by a field in Pudsey. The location is one you will be updated on very soon.

Also in the third act, a key scene will happen which shows that of Victims (decomposed) coming after Victoria and obeying to The Shriek's rules. We've got a make-up artist who's more than happy in achieving this decaying look of the Victims, this key scene we are aiming to shoot around the beginning or Mid of February in a field of Leeds, Yorkshire.

These are none-speaking roles but vital to both the production and story. You will be credited in the film for your work.
I will need to know if any of you have any make-up allergies, that way I know all is safe when applying make-up.

My job role is Producer.

Looking forward to seeing the applicants.
Many thanks,
Lewis.
