This Vampire – Short Film
Casting "This Vampire," a short film. Synopsis: An actress, who is herself a weirdo, plays a wonderfully cheerful and super weird prostitute who gets strangled by her criminal-loser boyfriend (whom she loves deeply) but, as the current re-shoot would have it, she doesn’t actually die because she’s a vampire. Instead of complaining about the shitty movie she’s making, the actress makes the most of it. But she is scared of the sex scene, so she tries LSD and a bunch of other things to “take the ego out of it” but it goes further than helping her with the scene, her entire life changes radically and she doesn’t give a shit about acting anymore. For the first time she feels the whole of who she is in a moment, and it’s more than who she was as that actress or this character.
