10 min short film. In a brave new world where Fae (mythical and fantasy beings) live uneasily among humans, this comedic mockumentary follows Zog – a lonely Orc with a heart of gold, and Edwin – a necromancer Elf desperate for recognition, as they attempt to chart a path for themselves in an unfriendly city.
ZOG – LEAD ROLE – MALE – 25-35 YRS OLD – ANY RACE
Zog is a large, intimidating looking Orc whose outward appearance belies his inner kind nature. Often rejected for his looks, he is searching for connection in a cold human world. He is romantically interested in Zoey. *Note: ideally 6ft or taller
EDWIN – LEAD ROLE – MALE – 25-35 YRS OLD – CAUCASIAN
Edwin is fiery and temperamental with a background in necromancy and a passion for raising the dead. He feels under-appreciated and mistreated by the human world. His attempts to start a resurrection business are thwarted by his villainous appearance and creepy demeanour, as he ends up driving prospective customers away.
ZOEY – SUPPORTING ROLE – FEMALE – 25-35 YRS OLD – ANY RACE
Zoey is a kind human with a warm bubbly personality who has empathy for the plight of the Fae. She is romantically interested in Zog.
AGNES – SUPPORTING ROLE – FEMALE – 45-60 YRS OLD – ANY RACE
Agnes is a spry, intense, and elderly woman who never learned to accept Fae in her time on earth. Once resurrected by Edwin, she has to face her prejudices.
GROUNDSKEEPER DAVE – SUPPORTING ROLE – MALE – 30-50 YRS OLD – ANY RACE
Groundskeeper Dave is a tired, overworked individual who runs the cemetery and buries the dead. He spends much of his time chasing away Edwin, who keeps trying to resurrect his handiwork.
