Male Lead - Short Comedy Crime Film

London, UK
Listed by View details

We are in pre-production of a short crime comedy film. The bulk of the film is set in a laundrette and ends in a prison cell! The lead role would be running a failing family run laundrette. A mysterious customer enters the store in need of getting some odd stains removed from his suit. This soon unfolds bringing much more business to his laundrette.

We are looking to show the short at film festivals hoping to open doors for the actors and crew!

We are film graduates, who have worked on a couple short films together looking to expand our portfolio and looking to make something we enjoy and care about.

Lead: Male in his 40s-50s. Works in a family business, runs the store by himself. He has a family he doesn’t really like so he spends most of his time in the launderette. He is a desperate man looking for a change in fortune without working too hard.

Mysterious man: Male in his 50s with a cool and calm demeanour. Not much is known about him but he is not to be messed with.
