Role / Project description: TITANIA is a magic realist film inspired by the fairytale of the Handless Maiden and "Midsummer Nights Dream" - set @ 1960 it is a mythic and magical story of overcoming adversity and healing from tragedy. We are breaking with convention in production as we explore Titania's journey through film, video and photography. Our current TITANIA short film, "Prodigals' Road" is currently on the festival circuit (Oct 1-14, 2020 screening with Cinequest/CINEJOY - an Oscar qualifying film fest!)
Seeking the role of the ARMLESS/HANDLESS MAIDEN - arm or hand amputee. This character lives in the same town that TITANIA takes place and (much like the original tale) serves as an inspiration to Titania as one who has risen above personal struggle and escaped the judgmental oppressions of the townspeople.
The Handless Maiden will be introduced with a "video portrait" and photo series, and will appear in the larger TITANIA film. Intro photography is this Fall on Long Island. **Please note - to get the to the location will require walking up a steep but short hill. Will be photographing/filming outdoors in November weather - but not rain or snow. (ALL CDC recommended COVID-19 precautions will be taken)
Looking for a true collaborator who will join our production "family", who will work with us to enhance this character and her own journey. We look forward to meeting you!
