"Acedia" is a 10 minute student film about a social outcast with the ability to see when and where people will die who falls in love with a troubled girl he sees will die soon.

The film will focus on Joe (the protagonist)'s character and his thoughts and philosophies, which will be expressed through both voice over monologues and visual sequences. His changing emotional state is another key focus of ours as he interacts with Elise (the female character) multiple times over the run time and comes to terms with how he feels. Troubled pasts play a large role in both characters' backstories, and we see the effects of them through their behaviour and speech. Strong chemistry between these characters is essential.
