Sohale Dezfoli and Nicholas Begnaud’s quick movie is aware of what it takes for nameless actors to nail that open casting name. It’s that Main Character Energy. Brian (Mark Prendergast) is an actor with an emphasis on “struggling” who’s on yet one more in a sequence of too many casting calls. Feeling hopeful, Brian asks fellow auditioner Lizzie (Taylor Joree Scorse) to rehearse together with her. Mark is studying for the position of Jordan…the identical position as Taylor. Is Jordan male or feminine? Why doesn’t anybody within the room know?
Before Mark can get a solution, he’s known as in to audition for the casting director…however for which position?
“Is Jordan male or feminine? Why doesn’t anybody within the room know?”
I really like a comedy sketch that retains me guessing, particularly concerning the punchline, and Main Character Energy does that. The movie shortly units us Mark as an actor who has a shot at profitable the lottery with that one good efficiency and should overcome problem after problem with out showing annoying to the at all times empathetic and sympathetic casting director (notice sarcasm).
Though Main Character Energy begins as a reasonably customary comedy sketch concerning the hell that’s the audition room, there’s a second when lead actors Brian Scott and Lizzie Mason give a splendidly good efficiency. It’s dramatic in a backhanded comedic approach, which results in an ironic punchline.
I see a variety of comedy quick, and the rationale Main Character Energy stands out is in how we sympathize with the lead characters and go proper together with their journey because the protagonists are pushed from one awkward scenario to the subsequent. Bravo!
