country and manhood; the other in a digital haze of

video-games and sex. In a series of scenes, we see the

mysterious inner life of both of these characters as they

slip further and further into the world of their own

dreams -- before a world-shattering night forces them to

confront the reality of their own existence.

A psychological and emotional portrait of a young boy

driven to search for meaning through
online sex. An exploration of the possibility of genuine

contact in an age of alienation and a statement on the

darkness hidden within the depths of the American dream.

Seeking character of "Son"

Description:
Asian or Mixed. Thin, with an androgynous or slightly

feminine quality. He tends to be sullen and reserved, as

he has already given up the hope of communicating with his

video games, and his dreams of becoming a guitarist.

Unable to find any connection in his real life, he turns

to the digital world for love.
Role Requires Nudity in scenes where the Son is
alone in his room. Scenes will be under-lit/dark.

Caucasian, Blonde, very attractive 20’s. Sophie can be

impossibly warm one second, and the next she can be evil

incarnate. She can say some pretty hurtful things, but

there is something about her you can't help but adore.

NB: Does not need to be a natural blonde. *(Comediennes

preferred, Elizabeth Banks/Anna Faris/Leslie Mann type)

Jeff
A decent looking guy that is down on his luck, scruffy

hair and an expressive face, 20’s. He is an everyman that

has hidden confidence, but life has worn him down to be a

sightly overweight/downtrodden husk of the man he once

was.

*(being overweight isn't a pre-requisite, a sense of humor

and not looking like Tom Cruise on the other hand is. Seth

Rogen/Jack Black/Adam Sandler type)

Claire
Girl next door character in her 20’s, Claire is extremely

down to earth, and adorable in equal measure, she is the

type of girl you would proudly introduce to your parents.

Very approachable and easy to talk to, she may not have

the immediate looks of Sophie, but to Jeff she is

perfection personified.
*(Jayma Mays/Alyson Hannigan/Zooey Deschanel type)

Hunk
A very attractive guy. Non-speaking role. 20’s.

If you are interested please reply to Yonathan Gal at

info@orensis.com with headshots, CV, reels etc.. and we

will arrange a time to audition. PS Apllications must

include Headshots.. thanks :-)

1. NOW CASTING FOR STEAMPUNK THEMED SHORT FILM - VARIOUS

ROLES

[H.] AGE 22, Female. Ethnicity open to interpretation.

Setting/Style Steam Punk Apapcalypse. H. lives a solitary

life, her only companions are her pet robots and the

memories of her family that was lost when the apocalypse

happened. She now is on a decade long trek to find the

mythical place from the fable her Uncle Max would tell her

while she spent her afternoons in his robotics workshop.

She’s fit, athletic, vunerible, strong willed, resilient,

and even with the years she is still beautiful. Subtle,

emotional, eyes that tell a story sorrow and a kindling

hope. LEAD

[Uncle Max] 50s, Male. Unshaven/bearded, face full of

character, a cross between a welder and a watchmaker. He’s

a master craftsman of Steampunk Robotics. He creates

robots the old school way, with his hands. While the

current technology allows robots to build robots Max

prefers to build them himself even if he doesn’t have any

clients. His robots have personality, charisma, attitude

and even flaws. he loves to tinker in his workshop and

tell stories to his darling niece H. The story he loves to

tell the most is of a far away mythical place where tree

grow towards the sky, leaves and grass are green, rivers

flow with fresh waters and there are even blue skies with

fluffy white. This is all just a mythical place before the

copper rains came and devastated everything. LEAD

[H.] AGE 12. Female. Inquisitive, charming, loving. H.

spends all of her free time either in her Uncle’s workshop

or out scouting the outskirts of the city. It’s a desolate

place but she still has hope, hope that there is a chance

life will rebound and nature will return to it’s old form.

In the world where H. grows up it seems there would be

know hope but she’s the eternal optimist. A trait that

would keep her alive.
