"City of Ghosts"
Aridan, Samuel, Andrica, Hazel, Extras
We are looking for St. Louis actors ages 14-18 who would be interested in auditioning for this mini webisode series, “City of Ghosts” The city has been overrun by spirits, and there are only four survivors. Hiding in the forest and fighting blood thirsty spirits hellbent on capturing them, the teenagers all share the same frightening dreams with the same frightening man; the man planning to use them as ingredients for a spell that might end everything and mark the beginning of a new era. And there are only four high-schoolers left to stop him. We will ask for a tape audition with a monologue of your choice, and then we will have you do another one reading for one of the characters we might be considering you for. Right now we are looking for primarily males, but also some female roles left to fill. We need respondents immediately to fill Aridan: Our villain.
Aridan: Aridan is the main antagonist, the sole cause of the city being taken over. He is smooth, he is manipulative, and of course he is very evil. He specializes in getting into people’s heads, finding the most sincere pleasure not in physically torturing you but from finding what your biggest fears and weaknesses are and using them to crush you. British accent preferred. This role has light stunts and stage fighting.
Samuel: Samuel is an awkward teen, sort of clumsy and quirky. Samuel is the realistic character, the one who responds to the world ending like any of us; with no clue what he is doing. He can’t fight, and he isn’t exactly well versed in the supernatural, but he provides some snark and plenty of laughs until he comes into his own and learns how to survive like the others. He has an amorous connection to Alyssa. This role has light stunts and stage fighting.
Andrica: Andrica is a spirit who reports to Kelra, saddled with a doofus of a partner she is held responsible for. She is vicious in her craft and does a lot of the killing and getting her hands dirty. Although a fierce and ruthless soldier, she’s already angered Aridan once, and she can’t screw up again. This role requires intense stage fighting and stunts.
Hazel: Hazel is a teenager from back in the 20’s. She was hunted by Aridan before, and now she’s spent the past hundred years hiding from his spirits; an angry and vengeful ghost waiting to take Aridan down for good. The protagonists call her in hope of her help, and she helps them get what they need to take Aridan down. She’s an interesting character, as she is still a spirit. She, like every other ghost, have no remains of human emotion left in her other than anger and revenge. This is an Understudy role, but the actress is likely to drop out. This role has intense stunts and stage fighting.
Philisynth: Philisynth is a spirit working for Aridan, partner alongside Oligark. Philisynth gets killed in an ambush by the main characters. Speaking role. Role can be Male or Female. This role involves one stunt.
Spirits: We have multiple Spirit roles open. Some get scenes of screentime, some are only on for a second. All Spirit roles require learning stunts and stage fighting, previous experience is appreciated, but not required. A few have lines, but many are built for actors with busy schedules and commitment issues. Some will be working with weapons.
We are also looking for crew; people to help with cameras, stunts, hair and make up, drone filming. It is a student made film, so you understand that we won’t be able to offer any kind of pay. It is just a group of teenagers looking for actors for our web-series. We are in no way a legitimate organization, nor are we with a school. It is for ages 14 to 18 only! Auditions close soon!
