Shades of Darkness

 

Casting Call for non-union, ultra-low budget, independent feature film on the island of Oahu.

 

Casting for a feature length independent film shooting on the island of Oahu, HI. This is an ultra-low budget SCI-FI/Fantasy feature. Principal photography is currently planned to begin for the middle of June.

 

Plot Synopsis:

 

When a man finds himself waking up in the woods, in a world of complete darkness, remembering nothing from the past few days, he finds himself chased by a mysterious figure. However, he does remember most of what has happened in the past ten years before that. As he wanders the streets, occasionally crashing at his friend Carlos’ place, he meets a young woman named Jessica, and a deeper story begins to unfold within his dreams. The mysterious figure, wearing a black cloak, haunts his dreams, claiming that this world is all a dream and his kind, a race of creatures known as Planeshifters, has ruled over it for centuries. As this creature continues to appear to him, his past is unraveled before his eyes and he must decide for himself what is true.
