3 actors needed for a short film :: lead role paid

From an e-mail sent out by Brooklyn based filmmaker Tambay Obenson:

"The basic part descriptions are:

1. Lead role - African American teenage boy (or at least someone who could play a teenager - 16 to 18 years old), and overweight (crucial), whether slightly or extremely.
2. African American man - father of teenage boy. 40s.
3. African American teenage girl (or someone who could play a teenager - also 16 to 18 years old). Size irrelevant.

If you know anyone who can fill these parts on such short notice, and can be available sometime between Saturday and Wednesday, please forward this to them, or let me know who they are and I will contact them myself.

There is pay for the lead role, the overweight teenage boy - not enough to pay rent, but enough to buy a pair of Nikes :o)

THANK YOU!!!!! I greatly appreciate it!"




Tambay is planning on submitting the completed short to Sundance Film Festival & YouTube's Project: Direct contest - where the winning short film gets screened at the upcoming Sundance Film Festival in January.

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.

Great movie, well written, well acted.  An interesting NYC experience.

Check out the movie at Netflix -
