Casting call for the film trailer of Passage which will shoot in August 2021. The full film is slated for production in the summer of 2022.

When a storm lands his estranged brother in town, an aging theater professor begins to hallucinate scenes from Shakespeare's The Tempest, awakening ghosts of the past and rippling dangerously into the real world.

Passage is a feature film set in present day Chicago, portrayed as a gritty urban world dappled with surreal encounters. The film blends contemporary dialogue with Shakespearean text.

Comparable productions include: Birdman, Being John Malkovich, Mulholland Drive, Stranger Than Fiction, The Fisher King.

The visual style of the film will mirror the duplicity of the story, blending documentary style, natural light, moving camera cinematography (allowing for actor's freedom of movement and performance) with more theatrical, neo-noir set pieces.

The film is written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Dave Less and produced by Mathias Blake and Anna Munzesheimer.
