Andrew takes him under his wing and soon takes over Walter's life leading him down an path of anger, hate and murder.
Walter: 40-55 White, average looking. I'm looking for a talented and professional actor thats willing to challenge himself.
Compensation: This is a low budget short film. Compensation will be deferred all meals, and snacks will be provided and everyone will receive a dvd copy of the film.
A Craiglist ad: just kinda funny

Talent call for short film: Self Hate in America
Self Hate in America is a short film about "Brandon" a child from an upper middle class home accustomed to getting blue ribbons for his 6th place performances. After barely getting his degree in environmental science he is unable to find a job, except as a Greenpeace panhandler. People's lack of generosity, his requisite low pay, and his own lack of a sex life brings him to the end of his rope and he attends a more extremest environmentalist meeting where he hopes to get on this bitch, Ashley. Soon he's befriended by "Sebastian" the groups leader. Sebastien takes him under his wing and soon takes over Brandon's life leading him down an path of anger, hate and murder and finally abandons him because Brandon banged Sebastian's slutty girlfriend, Ashley. To redeem himself as a mindless follower of the group, he tries to free monkeys in a medical research lab where he has to kill the postdoc who had just found a cure for HIV.
Brandon: 20-25 multiracial, (black, Hispanic, and islander; no whites, Asians, or other privileged races), good looking. I'm looking for a talented and professional actor that's willing to challenge himself and work for the earth, because I don't want to share the little money I make.
Compensation: This is a low budget short film because I have no capitol and no one willing to back my poor writing with their money because the man is keeping me down. Compensation will be deferred(and by that I mean, non existent.) All meals, and snacks will be provided by potluck and everyone will receive a dvd copy of the film.
...or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly;
who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings;
but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause,
who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly.
So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.-Teddy

Compensation: This is an excellent oppurtunity for exposure - to get your name out there(so that everyone will know you'll work for free). It's also great if you can work alot of overtime and if you can bring your own car, because we'll be traveling alot.
There. Now it's almost perfect. Only thing missing is a mention of the enourmous impact the film will have in Hollywood.

"soon takes over Walter's life leading him down an path of anger, hate and murder."
I guess he'll convince the guy to murder some politician?
