New York City

Producer Howard Nash is inviting you to submit a video audition for a speaking role in his true crime thriller being shot in Harlem this July! The open call runs from June 30 – July 14.


  • Male: Young cop, cool new wave professional. Night setting, family home, you are a new recruit arriving at the crime scene, viewing a gruesome murder for the first time!
