Curbside Confessions Audition Feb 11th

Cowboy-Up Productions will be holding auditions for the full length feature film titled Curbside Confessions at the Media Co-Op Saturday Feb 11th from 9am till noon.

Tagline: There are no good people. There are no bad people. There are the decisions people make.

Curbside Confession revolves around four unrelated stories that come together on one night, confronting issues such as prejudice, violence, and drugs, but that is not what Curbside Confessions is truly about. It's about how ordinary people prevail over such issues. It's about redemption, love, loyalty, reunion, morality, doing the right thing no matter the cost, overcoming prejudice, and humanity.

For additional information:

For bios and sides please contact us at: CowboyUpProductions@gmail.com

We at Cowboy Up would like to thank the Media Co-Op and all of it coordinators for all the hard work and dedication they put forth for the Memphis film making community. They are truly amazing and I am grateful for all they do!!!

Arnold Edwards II
Cowboy-Up Prod.
