    I have loved this story since I was young and would like to be in youe movie. I am 5’9″ tall and know that I don’t meet the requirements for a short or tall person. I have experience as an extra and think that I would be a great addition to your movie. Besides, I am an author and know what following directions can do for a movie.

    I am a 4″11 female, definitely over 18, living in the Kalamazoo area…other side of the state. Am I an inch too tall? Any idea of the shooting time frame? I do have a regular job and it’s a good 2 hour drive to the Detroit area but find this very intriguing. Have acting/singing experience and am a voice over actor.
    Thanks for your time.
