“The Problem of a Flower” Casting Call, Asphodelus Productions (Detroit, MI)

Asphodelus Productions seeks actors for the short film “The Problem of a Flower”.

Synopsis:

Adam, a sporadically-employed twenty-something, has lost all meaning from his life after his girlfriend rejects his marriage proposal. He turns to his artist friends, each stranger than the former, for purpose. One makes thousands of paper airplanes; another composes poems to the dead; still another obsessively washes windows until he can see his own clear vision of the world. Perhaps Adam will learn a valuable lesson when all of them come together…or is he forever doomed to remain stuck in the past?

Character Breakdown:

  • BEADRICE - 20-30, the fickle girl of Adam’s dreams. Unwittingly callous in her day to day behavior.
  • LIONEL/LEONA – (gender flexible), 20-30, Anal expulsive personality (broadly defined as exhibiting cruelty, emotional outbursts, disorganization, self-confidence, (sometimes) artistic ability, generosity, rebelliousness and general carelessness), obsessed with splattering paint and contemplating the cosmos.
  • AIDEN - 20-40, strange poet obsessed with the dead and with seduction.
    Our style is inspired by Gondry’s THE SCIENCE OF SLEEP (surrealism) and Hitchcock’s SPELLBOUND (a man fighting for his identity hindered by deep-seated psychological issues).
