In Dreams - A Student Comedy-Drama Short Film

Wellington, NZ
Listed by View details

In Dreams is a short film about the nature of friendships and the perceptions we form in our heads when we fail to talk about our issues. It’s an unusual film set inside a dream with the occasional scattering of humorous colourful characters. It follows the story of friends/flatmates, Arthur and Kay, when they find out they are both in the same dream. It’s all fun and games until things start bubbling up to the surface and they’re forced to confront their issues.

While this film is made as part of the MFA program at Victoria University, it is intended for a wider release through festivals such as Show Me Shorts.

Arthur and Dream Arthur

Arthur also plays a smaller role as a dream version of himself. One of the major characters of the film. Arthur is directionless and spends all his time at home. He wants to have fun and forget about his responsibilities but sitting in the back of his mind, he’s terrified of his future. He hides behind his immaturity and avoids dealing with anything. Dream Arthur is Kay’s idea of Arthur. It’s all of his worst attributes cranked to 11 without any of the self-critical aspects.

Male, aged 24 to 30

Applications closed 29 October 2020.

Kay and Subconcious Kay

Note: Katy also plays a smaller role as the dream version of themselves. The other major character in the film is Kay. Her work/life balance is non-existent. She seems well adjusted to adult life, but she’s a little disillusioned with what adulthood actually turns out to be. Subconscious Kay is a representation of her ‘best’ self. She’s tasked with just dealing with all the things happening to Kay in real life and she doesn’t pass judgement over those life decisions, for better and for worse.

Female, aged 24 to 30

Applications closed 29 October 2020.

The Cowboy

They are a cowboy, from the perspective of someone who doesn’t really know what cowboys are like. The character is a bit of a goofball and is often seen being buddies with Dream Arthur.

Anyone, aged 25 to 40

Applications closed 29 October 2020.

The Wood Chopper

The axe man looks like a maniacal murderer. He’s a big guy in a jumpsuit and a mask. Don’t let his appearance fool you, he’s actually just a pretty soft spoken and chill guy who likes to protect his face when he chops wood. (No actual wood chopping in the film)

Male, aged 25 to 50

Applications closed 29 October 2020.

The Mysterious Person

The first person Arthur meets in the dream. They communicate with Arthur non-verbally and guide him towards Kay in the dream.
