When two passengers arrive in their lift with no blank information, polar opposites Sharon and Stan must decide together whether they have to travel to heaven or hell.
The story is a dark comedy and is set in a lift that ferries souls between heaven and hell. Sharon is a lift operator for Gateway elevator services. Her job is to ferry new souls from Earth to either heaven and hell. She is fairly new to the job as she’s been doing it for a few hundred years. Stan on the other hand has been a lift operator for over a thousand years and has been round the block a few times. With his lift stuck in the workshop he hitches a ride with Sharon in her lift. Everything is going normally until their client cards that come through for the next trip are blank. They have no idea whether they have to go to heaven or hell and somehow have to make the decision themselves.
Sharon wants to make sure everything is done by the book and that the clients get to the right destination. Stan is just after the easy route out and would send everyone down to hell if he could. The reason the situation becomes more urgent is because the two clients they have no information about, Lyndsey and Christopher, suddenly turn up in the lift while they’re trying to decide their destination…
The roles we are looking to cast are:
STAN – Fifties. Bit scruffy looking but can scrub up well when he needs to. Short, silver grey hair and stubble. An old hand at the job (hundred of years of experience at least), but passed over for promotion and stopped from retiring due to a previous mistakes. Grumpy, sarcastic, the exact opposite of good customer service, but able to keep a cool-head when things don't go exactly to plan.
CHRISTOPHER – Mid thirties. Tall, stocky and well built. Very short hair, if any hair at all. Evasive and agitated, Christopher is having a hard time adapting to his new situation and initially questions its authenticity. Quick to anger and easy to upset, he also appears to be suffering claustrophobia. He still wears the office clothes he had on when he died.
We will be shooting Wednesday 23rd - Friday 25th July in a studio in Cardiff. Since this is a low budget production with almost all of the funds dedicated to the professional build of our set these are unpaid roles but food will be provided and travel expenses covered. Of course everyone involved will also be provided with a copy of the finished film. If you're interested please don't hesitate to contact me as we are looking ideally to have auditions / read-throughs next week.
EDIT: All roles have now been cast. Thanks.
