Black Paper is a dramatic art house feature about a woman who fears she is going mad when she begins demonstrating hallucinatory symptoms similar to her husband’s following his death.

Available Roles:

We are looking for actors capable of subdued, subtle performances for the following roles:

  • Mark (supporting) – male, 30-40 – tries to come across as good-natured, but has ulterior motives; runs an art gallery; secretly in love with Ginny; can be a little smug at times.
  • Steve (supporting) – male, 32-42 – Max’s deceased older brother; appears primarily in Max’s visions and flashbacks; Steve has been something of a failure in life, but enjoys vicarious (and sometimes manipulated) success through supporting Max’s work.
