Casting Call: The Zip Up

If you’re a regular reader of this blog you may already know I have won two screenplay categories at the Broad Humor Film Festival for two years in a row.  That makes me an alumni and eligible to submit a Legacy Project short.

Toward that end, I’m starting the casting process for The Zip Up, a comedy short.  Please be so kind as to forward the information below to your actor friends as you see fit.


Logline: Because she lives alone, a woman goes to great physical lengths to zip up the back of her dress.

Seeking both Union and Non-union actors for two roles: The Woman and The Man

The Woman: Funny, petite to medium size, 20s-30s, striking/quirky/unusual facial features preferred.

Must have great physical and comedic improv skills. There’s a script, but I will rewrite and play to actor’s skills and strengths. This will be a very collaborative process.

The Man: Funny, 20s-30s, open to physical built, but striking/quirky facial features preferred

One-day shoot in early July 2011 in Los Angeles (Silverlake).

Tentative audition dates: June 11, 12, 18 and 19, 2011 in Hollywood.

NO PAY, but you will receive mileage reimbursement, meals, copy, IMDB credit and guaranteed comedy festival play.

Please e-mail headshot, resume and reel (if you have one) to

Once you are invited to audition, you will receive a location, date and time.

Thank you.
