Casting Call

About the Project:

Murder They Screened! is a short comedy horror where two printmaking art college students have to take their creativity to the next level trying to solve a murder mystery happening in their own class. The pressure is on for these students to solve the mystery, before their own secret is revealed.

The script is 5 pages long, we are filming in one location over two half-days, craft services will be provided at the audition and on set.



Since we are students we won’t be able to provide monetary compensation.

However homemade and store bought food will be provided and travel costs can be covered. You will receive credit within the film and on IMBD. A copy of the film will be provided and you will have the option to be added to our group’s contact pool of actors for future projects.

Allergies to makeup and food:

We will be using some SFX and general use makeup on this production for the main cast, if you have any allergies to any specific type of makeup please let us know so we can purchase the right brand for you. The same goes for food!

Vera – tall, her red hair stands out, her all-grey clothes are marred by ink stains.

Theo – he is on the shorter side, his features are striking and stand out against his plain, ink-stained, clothes and apron

Screaming Death God – tall, imposing, and rocking a death metal aesthetic; SDG radiates brutality
