Casting Call - Slightly New - Submissions are due no later than 02/14/2022

Casting call for “Slightly New”, a feature-length comedy film.  This micro budget film will be shot in Baltimore, MD and surrounding areas (talent must be local).

Logline
A pair of troublemaking slackers have 72 hours to save their failing used car dealership, their friendship, and themselves.  

Synopsis 
Stuck in a dead-end sales job at a shady dealership, Brandon and Leo were always destined for mediocrity. But when their boss gets arrested and things take a turn for the better (or the worse?) at work, the duo have a chance to finally step up and make something of themselves.  Between keeping the IRS off their backs and a rival dealership off their case, dealing with the women, weed, and occasional 2 hour employee lunch break seems like light work. The road back to respectability is a long, bumpy test drive.
