Audition Description

Steve finds himself in a test room about to begin an experiment that he volunteered for. He believes he is about to virtually experience a simulation built on the perspectives of other people. A Technician hooks him up to the proper equipment and guides him through the test. Steve is nervous about the test, but proceeds through the persuasion of the Technician. The Technician starts the test. At this point, a series of doodle-like animations and sketches play through the perspective of the test subject, Steve. The Technician asks that Steve communicates as much as he can about his experiences in this simulation. Steve does as best as he can as he travels through moment after moment. Some moments glitch and the Technician fixes the bugs and rewinds them for Steve. Steve experiences waves of different emotions and feelings toward these short moments displayed on the screen (both for Steve and the viewer). Just when Steve begins to see and feel everything in a semi-realistic manner, the screen cuts to black and the technician tells him that the test is over. In the end, as the technician is asking him a few questions, Steve explains to the technician what he thought the test was about. The technician questions Steve and asks him if he had forgotten why he came into the room. The technician finally states that this test wasn't built on the memories of other people, but rather, this simulation was built on memories that Steve had forgotten. The technician tells him that this is his last look. This is where the short film ends.

  • Each excerpt is in a specific moment of how Steve feels in this situation. Steve already knows he's in the test lab for a simulation that he volunteered for.

    In Excerpt A: Steve is really nervous about what he's about to experience. He is also really intrigued and committed to the project because he wants to pioneer this research and what seems like a golden opportunity to volunteer for a test and simulation that is brand new technology. He doesn't know of anyone who has remotely taken a test like this, but this is where the conflict within him stems from. Excitement, but fear and a slight hesitation.

    In Excerpt B: The visuals start to reel Steve in. It's like the first acceleration on a new ride. This is all still brand new to him so he struggles to communicate everything he sees, but he's blown away by what's taking place and the simulation that was built for his own experience. His fear has become almost pure adrenaline and his senses are overwhelmed.

    In Excerpt C: Just as he was starting to adapt to the simulation and predict its patterns, the visuals cut to black. This confuses Steve because it was so short. He wants more, but he's also still processing everything he just witnessed and experienced. There's also a slight sense of accomplishment that's underneath everything he feels. He just completed the test, but was that really the end?

  • Role #2 - Technician

    Each excerpt is in a specific moment for both Steve and the Technician.

    The Technician is well mannered, gentle, and seems caring. However the technician also keeps everything professional and seems to view the experiment as more important than the subject.

    In Excerpt A: The Technician is gently trying to keep Steve committed to his involvement in the simulation. The Technician calmly persuades Steve into starting the test while keeping hard boundaries on certain aspects of the simulation.

    In Excerpt B: The Technician is patiently trying to get Steve to communicate everything that he experiences. The Technician can't see anything themself so they try their best to get feedback from Steve for the sake of the experiment and project. They also are in charge of fixing any bugs that Steve experiences in the system so they try to listen out for keywords to cue them on when to rewind/fix that portion of the simulation. They also reassure Steve in times of need.

    In Excerpt C: This is perhaps the most jarring moment in the film. The Technician comes off harder than normal. The Technician notices something wrong and unusual and uses a line of quick, semi-harsh questioning to see if the patient is thinking properly. In this moment, the Technician is also confused and a bit concerned for the well being of Steve. The Technician is the one who notices that they clearly weren't on the same page during this simulation. Their thinking isn't as cohesive as it was before the test (unsaid and unseen or heard on screen.)
