I am looking for men and women ages 18-24 to star in the DEDZstudios Productions four part mini-series/short film “Dave & Laura” if you are interested please contact me at daniel.yovella@gmail.com. Please include an audition tape and your contact information. The deadline is June 5, 2016. I will not accept anything after the deadline.

I will let you know if you have been selected for a part in the short film on June 15, 2016
