Mandy Casting Call

The male lead has been cast. The search for the female is still on, though.

(Following casting call via

Payment is on a lo/no/deferred basis.
Director: Rachit Agarwal.
We're making a short film titled Dark Matter. It revolves around a young, urban couple whose lives are drastically altered following an impulsive fight. Driven by guilt and driven to madness, the young man proceeds to develop an unnatural, rather scary relationship with his deceased girlfriend. We have cast the lead actor--he's part of his Delhi University college dramatics society and, as such, has tremendous acting credentials. He is focused, determined and steeped into his character already. What we need is an actress. She needs to be between 5'0' and 5'10', any complexion, reasonably pretty, unaverse to a single on-screen kiss and expressing moody sensuality. Please note that all of this will be shot aesthetically and makes up only a small part of the script.
Our credentials: We are Journalism & Mass. Comm students of Amity University. We've worked on many Film & TV projects before; we're also involving film school trained professionals to handle the technical stuff. The plan is to circulate the film at film festivals including the big ones abroad. We're all students and it goes without saying that the budget pinches our pockets very dearly. Therefore, please apply for the love and passion for film making rather than for the money (there is none!). And remember that the scope of this film is HUGE.

Set Layout

This is the ideal layout of the set, the one which I had visualized while writing the script.

I'm looking for fresh locations, now that my originally short listed locations have fallen through. Any volunteers?
