The Long Con

“The Long Con” follows a demon seeking revenge for her death against her husband. The demon’s plan is tested when her equal opposite, an angel, shows up and causes the demon to think about her motivations.

This is a Southern Methodist University student film project to be shot on campus in Dallas, TX. It is written and directed by Lexie Shamir, a junior pursuing a Film and Media Arts B.F.A.


Female, college-aged, caucasian. Freya is a grungy demon who took her life back in the 1950s because she did not want to be a housewife. She has a nihilistic view of life, and “lives” carefreely, using her powers for fun. She is overconfident to compensate for her hidden emotions and hesitancy towards wanting to murder her husband.

Male, college-aged, caucasian. Gabe is an optimistic angel who was killed back in the 1920s for being a “misfit.” He is on campus because he is interested in Freya, the demon, with which angels do not affiliate, and her desire to kill someone still living. He wants to talk her through it and is not threatened by her at all, for he has powers too.

Male, age range of 60-80, caucasian. Tom, a well-revered physics professor, has lived his life since his wife Freya’s death helping students get the opportunities he failed to give Freya in an attempt to do right by her. He blames himself for her death.

Disguised Freya:
Female, college-aged, any ethnicity. Freya, when sitting in her husband’s class, is able to disguise herself as anyone she wants to keep her true identity under wraps.
