AUDITION SIDE 1 of 2 FOR THE ROLE OF "PERRY"

INT. PERRY’S CLASSROOM - DAY

A Japanese tapestry is hanging on easel as PERRY CHASE, 17, stands before his classmates, reading from a sheet of paper.

Perry's smart phone beside him is playing Japanese folk music.

On the board behind him, the words: "Favorite Folk Tales, Myths, and Legends."

EXT. ANCIENT JAPAN - ON THE BAMBOO PATCH

In shadows the Sorcerer hides, his eyes explode with rage.

PERRY (V.O.)
But in the shadows of the Bamboo,
the evil Sorcerer spies on the Tamiko
and Yoshi. He explodes with rage,
leaps from the shadows and
flies across the beach,
landing before a terrified Tamiko.

Yoshi steps between them to shield her from his fury.

PERRY (V.O.) (CONT'D)
Yoshi tried to defend her,
but the Sorcerer unleashes a
bolt of lighting that sends
Yoshi flying into the bamboo.

Yoshi tries to rise. His eyes roll back, and he collapses. Tamiko rushes to help him, but the Sorcerer, spewing venom, points his index finger at her, and she freezes in mid-run.

PERRY (V.O.) (CONT'D)
(as mouths, words not matching)
“You dance for that commoner
and not for me? You show your
love for him? And not for thee?
Then dance you will now,
for eternity, always alone,
never to find love.”

Blue sparks start to come out of the Sorcerer’s finger tips.

PERRY (V.O.) (CONT'D)
Then the Sorcerer casts a wicked
spell on her, knowing he would
never have her love.

Tamiko breaks out of her freeze as sparks fly, and begins twirling, twirling, until she disappears.

PERRY (V.O.) (CONT'D)
When Yoshi awoke, the
Sorcerer was gone...
and so was Tamiko...
forever.

Yoshi walks the fields around the mountain, day and night, searching, forever.

PERRY (V.O.) (CONT'D)
Yoshi searched his entire life
for Tamiko, his true love...
(beat)
and some say he searches to
this very day...

Yoshi, as an old man, trudges up Mt. Fuji... and WE FREEZE ON HIM, as his image melds into the tapestry rendering.

PERRY (V.O.) (CONT'D)
And Tamiko... she dances
in the spirit world, still
searching for her Yoshi.

DISSOLVE THROUGH:

INT. PERRY’S CLASSROOM - DAY

Perry stares out to his classmates... a long beat.

PERRY
It’s like this totally huge urban
legend in Japan that Tamiko still
dances... but not among the living...
which is pretty wicked if you think
about it.

There's a long awkward pause, Perry scans the classroom for some reaction. Several of the girls in class are crying, including LENA 18, blonde and built-like-a-brick-house, wiping a tear from her eye, or is she?

PERRY (CONT’D)
Tamiko never realized, but
she had the power to break
the Sorcerer’s spell, all
she had to do was -

The BELL RINGS, sets the students into varying degrees of motion.

PERRY (CONT’D)
Wait, there's more...
