Johanna Unden [film+theatre student at UMD-Duluth MN]

Johanna Unden is available to play the role of Jordan, however other actors can of course be auditioned or cast for the role depending on the desires of the Director and Producer(s).

Jordan, 18-20s. High school or college student. Attractive, slim/athletic build. We feel for her vulnerability when she is home alone during a storm, and while an escaped killer is on the loose from the nearby state prison.
Emma. 18-20s. Jordan’s friend. The role of Emma is a voiceover so this can be handled using a Fiverr voiceover actress or a friend of the main character or someone local.

SYNOPSIS OF PROJECT: This is a supernatural thriller short film about a young woman who wakes and discovers the world is not as it seems, that she has been traumatized and can not understand why, but as she investigates a strange sound in the house her confusion unravels to become her greatest nightmare. One actor, one voice-over actor, a scary house. Almost any house or apartment would work for filming– just needs a bedroom, bathroom with a mirror, and a basement with a furnace.

Notes: Should be a quick film shoot as there is just one actor, one indoor location (controlled weather, temperature, audio), so film it quick as possible and ‘get it in the can’ (or in this case on memory cards). Some green screening for the last scene/shot but otherwise relatively simple filming. Will require a VFX artist to superimpose video of cell phone texting and protagonist’s character disintegration, and will require a voice actress for voiceover of the protagonist’s friend.

This is the tentative type of clothing (pajamas) the main character JORDAN will be wearing for first part of the story (afterwards, jeans and a long sleeve gray Henley shirt):
