Synopsis:
Trapped inside a prison of darkness, Devin knows nothing but hopeless depression and thoughts of suicide. A man she knows as the dark dancer has a firm grip on her, keeping her locked inside the darkness. But everything begins to change when Devin one day finds a pair of white slippers with her name written on them. Will Devin's anonymous visitor be able to break her free from her prison and ultimately from the grip of the dark dancer? Expressed through the arts of acting and dancing, this is a message of hope to those that have given up on hope, to show that redemption is closer than we may think.

Character BIOS

DEVIN - GENDER: FEMALE - AGE: 24 - ROLE FILLED

Devin knows she wants to be free from her prison, but she only sees one way out - suicide. The battle within her soul intensifies as two dancers with completely opposite characters fight to either keep her locked inside her prison or to free her forever. The question is, which one will ultimately prevail?

THE DARK DANCER - GENDER: MALE - AGE: 25-35 - SEEKING ACTOR/DANCER

The dark dancer is Devin's tormentor, controlling her and keeping her locked inside a dark prison. He has the power to make her dance whenever he wants and to make her stop as well. But when an anonymous visitor gifts Devin with a pair of white slippers with her name on them, the dark dancer's grip on Devin tightens, ultimately driving her to take her own life. Will he be able to keep his grip on her, or will Devin's visitor break his power off her as he fears?

THE DANCER - GENDER: MALE - AGE: 25-35 - SEEKING ACTOR/DANCER

The Dancer is Devin's anonymous visitor. Taking pity on Devin, he creates a pair of slippers for her with her name on them as a way to get her attention that there is someone who still cares about her. Will his love for her be powerful enough to save her from the dark dancer's iron grip?

12 DANCERS - GENDER: MIXED - AGES: 15-45 - SEEKING DANCERS

Looking for 12 dancers for the final scene of the film, which will be a dance scene with no speaking. No experience necessary! If you have a passion for dancing, this could be a great opportunity for you. Dancing style is a mixture of modern/contemporary dance with some hip hop intermixed.

Workshop: How to Audition for Film or TV and Nail It

Date posted: Jan 9th, 2018

View More >

Saturday-Sunday, February 10-11, 10am-4pm, at FilmNorth

Instructor: Steven Chester Prince

This workshop provides actors of all experience levels with effective film/television audition techniques for any size/type of role. Through improvisation, paraphrasing, and ultimately living the text, participants learn techniques to create interesting characters for an audition and how to build a foundation to expand upon those early choices to create memorable characters once they’ve booked the job.

Actor Steven Chester Prince provides you with tools for memorization and emotional preparation to bring a little something extra to an audition that will separate you from your competition and build the cornerstone of your acting moving forward. You’ll leave the workshop with the confidence to make bold choices in the audition process locally, and to also prepare yourself for the larger markets of Los Angeles and New York.

Acting Class - Introduction to Meisner Technque

Date posted: Jan 3rd, 2018

View More >

Fee $375 per student, Limited to 12 students. Students work every class.

 

An introduction to the Sanford Meisner approach to acting technique – sixteen acting classes are conducted in an eight-week session.

  I ask for open mindedness with ideas, and to people with illnesses and disabilities as I myself have Asperger Syndrome and Multiple Sclerosis. 

  Please e-mail if you are interested, I am looking forward to working with those who contact me, unfortunatley because of con artist who masqurade as filmmakers (I have seen a few) and agents background checks will be done. I am sure you readers have seen some as well.
