Indie non-union short film seeking cast for 2 day shoot.
Casting OUT FOR LUNCH, an independent, darkly comedic short film about the mundane absurdities of everyday life, including death.

Actors please apply who are looking to expand your reel and/or broaden your network of creatives. We, the filmmakers you will be working with, are a small group of professional twenty and thirty somethings working in film and/or editorial. We are here to have some fun and make a great short film together. This is an unpaid gig; We are unfortunately not able to financially compensate our actors except in food, fun, and hopefully future work together!

This is an indie non-union short. Final film will be posted online and (if all works out) will be submitted to competitions and the festival circuit.
