M E D E A a blurred crusade

CASTING CALL FOR TEASER TRAILER: Jason & Calix (23-35 yrs)

Theater training especially Shakespeare or Euripides would be an advantage for JASON. There is no dialogue in this early trailer. Shoots March/April.

The film is all monochrome, using the original text from the play but set in the present.

This genre is ‘NEO GOTHIC NOIR’

JASON is transgender. Think Brian Moloko from the band PLACEBO. He like Medea has three versions to his persona. The past version is sort of pretend gruff, three day growth, medium to long hair and masculine yet sort of soft for an Australian male. His transgender version is more androgenous but not over done. His present later version stops using oestrogen supplements to allow the testosterone to become dominant again as he thinks it will increase his chance of survival in a harsh desert. So in his head he tries to transition back, & prevent her version of reality - which is Medea dragging their two sons across the same harsh desert ahead to hang them from the Medea tree. Jason is loosing her mind though and is ill prepared.

“Two women’s scorn”

Then there is CALIX. The third player. He is a beautiful, young, gorgeous, of African/Jamaican descent, chiseled with dreadlocks tied up. The finest specimen of a man the world has ever seen...

Calix is the true protagonist. He seduces Jason into betraying his own family, is matron and Tudor to the two boys, marries Jason and assumes command of the marital home. Calix is hence poisoned by Medea….


“There are many matters the gods bring to surprising ends.
The things we thought would happen do not happen; such is her story”
