The production, “Carbike,” is a recipient of the 2014 Indie Memphis Film Grant and will be filming over a 3-day period in April. The production is seeking actors to portray a Japanese male (age 25-40), Japanese female (age 25-35) and Caucasian male (age 30-40).

If interested, send a headshot, past experience, and availability to: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Put “carbike casting” in the subject line of the email. Nonactors are welcome to submit.
