THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN THESE THREE MEN WILL BE ESSENTIAL

The pacing and subtle nuance in the dialogue is what will make the whole bizarrity of their interaction feel natural in this equally bizarre world. As with previous projects, every scene will be individually rehearsed and blocked through with all three actors and the director before shooting begins. This is not only a great tool for time management. It also allows the cast and director to be confident in their ability to get the artistic vision across and gives the director time to understand each actor's unique strengths. Each character in Diary of a Possum holds their own radical views on wealth, power, and standing in the world, it is this clash of ideals that encompasses the overarching moral dilemma. Casting will be done via social media, reviewing reels, having script reads for callbacks, and finally meeting our favourites before the final selections.

BADGER by name, Badger by nature. Squat, rotund, and considered largely by the public to be a pest. He stumbles through life with the vague notion that a man's purpose is to work and then die. What’s involved in the work is beside the point, because at the end of the day, a job’s a job. Dirty deeds done dirt cheap? I’m your guy.

 

Sometimes clients buy him a suit if the job requires a certain level of appearance, but they always fit too tight. If that wasn't a dead giveaway, then the cheap cigarettes being perpetually inhaled should make it pretty clear, to the type of man you’re dealing with.

CLIVE DALTON. Started off with a small loan of a million dollars, plus the inheritance. But as Clive will tell you himself; he had to make his own way in life, there is no shortcut to success, just hard work and diligence. He shows it in his dress. Immaculately fitted suits, calf skin loafers, and a watch to pair. Does it tell the time? Yes, within the second, but you’re asking the wrong question. How much did it cost?

Life operates on an axis, and that axis rotates around Clive. His peers respect him and his subordinates fear him, yet all he yearns for is that thrill that died long... long ago.

 

SHANNON, One of God's own creations. A prototype constructed somewhere between man and insect. He scuttles around erect and uneasy, off-brown suit hanging limp from his lank frame, unsure of where the next meal, the next pay, will come from.

This world gives you nothing but grief, and Shannon reciprocates in kind.

Maybe he is just a man born ahead of his time, the perfect archetype for a nuclear apocalypse. Maybe he’s just another man down on his luck, trying to make a buck. What is undeniable, however, is that Shannon is a survivor. God bless.

 

SHANNON: 40, aloof, lanky, dim-witted
