Abstract/Artist Statement

I am a senior Theatre Arts major and Film Studies minor. I wanted to create a comedic student film with a higher quality of production. After many rewrites, I came up with “The Voodoo Audition”. This film is a hilarious comedy about two rival actresses, Toni and Emmy. Both are auditioning for the lead role in A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare. While Toni prepares for her audition, she comes across a shady character named Liza, who reveals to her that her rival has been seeing a voodoo queen for good luck at auditions. After finding this out, Toni takes a visit to Mama Tasha, the local voodoo queen. Before Toni meets Mama Tasha, she sees Emmy leaving. Both ask Mama Tasha for help to bring bad luck on the other actress. Who knows what may happen. Does Mama Tasha have a few tricks up her sleeve? Where does Liza fit into this story? This comedy is an exciting and laughable film for all audiences to see.
