Drive Manny Drive Auditions (Senior Thesis Film)

drive-manny-drive-posterThe inimitable Ben Goldberg ’17 writes in for all u actors:

Come audition for Matt Shelley-Reade‘s senior thesis film DRIVE MANNY DRIVE

An uninspired voyeur stuck in suburbia. A driver’s test instructor out to get him. An overzealous father. And a sports car just waiting for him to pass his test. What would it look if you couldn’t pass your driver’s test to save the life of you and what if you had the same instructor every time? This short film tells a coming of age story of a young boy facing his own anxiety.
