“Eisoptrophobia” Casting for NYU Student Film

Casting Call for Actors

We are two NYU students making a film in Detroit, MI. The shoot dates are Friday, Saturday and Sunday, either the weekend of Dec. 21st or Dec. 28th. This is going to be a really informal shoot with a skeleton crew, but we are both really passionate about the piece.

Plot:

“Eisoptrophobia” is an experimental narrative about a young woman who has to confront her fear of her own reflection. In doing so, she learns a lot about her own identity, specifically in reference to her relationship with her own overbearing boyfriend. This short piece deals a lot with gender and what it means to be a woman in contemporary culture as well as memory and nostalgia.

Available Roles:

  • AGATHA: Early 20s, female. This is two roles in one. Agatha developed an inexplicable fear of her own reflection once she sees something in a photograph she takes. She’s an aspiring photographer. She has to deal with severe depression once her reflection phobia sets in. Once her boyfriend locks her in a room with a mirror, her reflection becomes personified and takes her on a little trip to visit unsettling memories.
  • ERIC: Mid 20s, male. Eric is Agatha’s sometimes insensitive boyfriend. He has to take care of her in her state of depression.

Compensation:

These are not paid roles. Food will be provided. Transportation will be reimbursed.

How to Apply:

If you are interested in applying, please email your headshot and resume to: yps207@nyu.edu

NOTE: Auditions will be held via Skype (we’re both out of state, at the moment).
