About the Film

Artifice is a full-length psychological thriller, written by Steven Doxey, Brandon Sean Pearson, and Michael Doxey, that follows an actor who is cast as the lead in a bold, art-house film from a well known director. The Director's film recreates the story of his father, who was captured and locked in a Siberian prison. For the actor's process to portray the Director's father, he goes method; following the footsteps of his favorite actors. He isolates himself in a remote cabin, where he pores over script pages and keeps a diary of his thoughts. He lives in the skin of his character, he eats, sleeps, even begins to think like him. The pressure to play the role truthfully is increased ten-fold by the Director's militant perfectionism. Day by day, the actor begins to slowly transform into something out of his control. This metamorphosis has serious ramifications both on and off-set.
