Actor Seeks Role Wins at IFF Boston and HTN! / by Ben Nabors

Actor Seeks Role won the Grand Jury Prize for Narrative Short at it’s World Premiere at IFF Boston. The film also won Hammer To Nail’s Short Film Competition. From the judges…

Michael Tyburski’s Actor Seeks Role immediately leapt out ahead of the pack. It’s a fully realized, well shot and brilliantly acted short film that you’re probably going to see at numerous film festivals for the next few years. And with good reason– it’s outstanding…

Actor Seeks Role is the real deal. It’s a very well realized short film that had the good fortune to land two spectacular character actors in Karpovsky and Baker. Another great thing about this short is that it seems to truly exist as the short that is presented. That is to say, it’s not too much story shoved into a small constraint nor does it drag on. It also doesn’t feel open ended, like a short film which is really a few scenes culled from a feature the filmmaker wants to get made based on the success of the short. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but I found it refreshing to see a short film that fully takes advantage of it’s time constraints and uses them brilliantly.
