    Turf war

    When two elderly men are in competition for the best lawn on the block yet again,
    a seemingly lighthearted prank starts an all out war between the two neighbors.

    This is my first fest, so I'm pretty excited. Had a spot of free time coming up so this all works out really well.

    This will be my first comedy, so here goes nothing!

    It begins. Script nearly done, so I put out a CL ad to see if I would get any possible actors to play or elderly heroes. Casting two elderly men. 55+ , must be fit enough for light physical comedy etc.

    And this is my first reply:

    i WORK IN A FUNERAL HOME. I JUST EMBALMED 2 OLD GEEZERS THAT WOULD BE GREAT FOR THE PART. THEIR PERSONALITIES ARE A BIT LACKING. THEIR FACIAL EXPRESSIONS ARE PRICELESS THOUGH. mY BROTHER DRESSED ONE IN A BATMANS OUTFIT, AND PROPPED HIM UP SO I WALKED INTO HIM WHEN I WALKED IN. THEY CALLED ME AT 2 AM SAYING THEY HAD A STIFFY FOR A LUBE AND FILTER FOR A 9 AM SERVICE. I WAS READY FOR IT THOUGH. I HAD A BAT MYSELF. I HIT THAT OLD poo pooER SO HARD. I HAD TO USE 4 LBS OF STUFFING TO PUFF OUT THE SUIT WHEN i PUT HIM IN THE FREEZER
    And that is why I love/hate craigslist

    Oh Craigslist!

    I'm looking forward to this. I think that the title is perfect.

    Funny and original concept. Looking forward to it. I hope you can cast it okay.

    Good luck man. Sounds like a fun short.

    Casting seems to be a bit tough. The title of my casting post says Seeking ELDERLY Actors.

    Yet, all I'm getting is 50 year old guys and a few 40 somethings.

    Just put it out on every casting site that I could find, so hopefully we'll be moving forward soon.

    Love the title! I hope you find some good talent. You might consider asking people about their grandparents/parents. I just did a shoot where they needed old cars and some of the guys there only did it/found out about it from their kids. Looking forward to this one!

    We finally have a couple of people interested. I'm not completely sold on the submissions we have so far, but we're now looking to go through a local theater to see if we can source some talent there.

    If that doesn't work, I'm going to beg my grandparents to do it.

    Sounds like a great idea! I hope you use lots of funny ideas for this one. My wife and I were just cracking up at the craigslist post. People have way too much time on their hands.
