    Hi Guys,

    I'm writing a comedy film set in Beijing (we're filming right now), with a friend of mine. He's great director who has made four successful features before.

    Sadly, we have no budget. The plan is to make a 25 minute pilot, and use that pilot to sell the movie.

    We need an an actress to play the lead's ex-wife. She is supposed to be domineering, a Chinese English-speaker and about 30 years old.

    We just need you for about 2 hours, to do 2 scenes so that we can finish the pilot (which is already looking excellent.) If we sell the film, then the part will be yours for the rest of the film.

    Here are a few rough-cut teasers from the pilot.

    He's an Aussie, so maybe you are. But you are spot on. Brent and Partridge are big influences.

    It is very much about idiots abroad yes, but better than anything Karl Pilkingtin has done- he really is an idiot.

    Cat, the director has made four feature films- he knows what he is doing. Trust me

    We haven't found anybody that quite fits somehow. I guess we are being a bit picky considering the role is initially unpaid...

    Part of the problem is the leads ex-wife is not allowed to be beautiful. We need somebdy a bit aged and slutty, but can brush up well. As I said, way too picky...

    I thought those vids were gonna be from a comedy film, but they look like a documentary about the real Carlos to me. [br]

    ZING!

    Just kidding bro -- it looks good to me. I'm impressed. Keep your high standards and wait till you find the right girl to play the part. You don't want to fuck up the vibe. It's got real potential.
