Filming for the short film Malicious Attack is drawing to an end. Just a dozen scenes are left for the film being directed by Matthew Marshall under the banner of his company m & s Marshall Productions, in association with IME Films. The film has included a large number of people to create the world of Meadowbrooke High school for the film.  But it’s not done yet. Within those 12 scenes remaining the film’s director Matthew Marshall has a number of scenes that still need extra’s for. Including a court house scene and two school board scenes.

 

Currently they are accepting interested acting parties to be part of the scenes on Sunday June 4th to be bystanders in the scenes at the court house and then school board meeting room.

 

The film takes a twist on the traditional bully story line as at its heart it is a ‘good girl gone bad’ due to being bullied. The bully of the story Savannah not only bullies the “outcast” Raven (played by April Booth), the “Pregnant Teen”, Sara (Played by Tiandra Edwards)  and the “immigrant” in Linda (played by Dina Jasim). But Savannah does not stop there, she also bullies your run of the mill sweet “good girl” Naomi Spencer (Katie Ostojic).  Each of these characters has a different reaction and response to the bullying they experience. Naomi is the relentless target of the bullying by Savannah. Naomi’s best friend Macey (Morgan Flanagan) tries to find ways to help Naomi expose the bullying, but Naomi is unwilling to come forward. The Attacks on Naomi continue till she is pushed to a breaking point.

 

The films director and writer Matthew Marshall offers this on the topic of bullying in the film, “I think we all have seen bullying in some form or another regardless of our ages. Everyone knows someone who has been bullied. It happens every day and it affects everyone. This story gives lots of opportunity to discuss the issue of bullying and the reactions of those that are bullied” says Marshall.

 

It is the hope of the entire cast and crew that the film will teach audiences why bully awareness does not only refer to awareness in the public eye. “ Bullying awareness means awareness of specific incidents to authority figures, awareness of bystanders in their role and awareness of the bullies themselves of the potential gravity of their actions”, says Lattanzio.

 

Malicious Attack features a lot of people that have started out in smaller roles in other films and have moved up into major speaking roles or even lead roles in future films. Those included; Marley Cabral, Katie Ostojic, Morgan Flanagan, Helena Rose, and Elina Lattanzio to name some of the top cast of Malicious Attack.

 

Filming will take place in St Thomas Ontario.  If some one is interested in being a part of the film they can go to stage 32 and apply at https://www.stage32.com/jobs/357923/Malicious-Attack-Extras-Students-2 or join the Facebook event page at https://www.facebook.com/events/1873833306219277/
