We are holding an open casting for our short film “Watch the Movie”
The short film is about a man named Ezekiel from the streets who runs his block as the kingpin. He is tough but keeps things running smoothly. Everyday he listens to a radio talk show in which he idolizes the host Nate Knowledge and lives his life by some of his daily tips. Little does Ezekiel know, Nate knows of Ezekiel and is not fond of they way he is hurting the neighborhood.
