About Movie

The film revolves around a knitting competition (at high speed) in which senior citizens are participating to knit their names as quickly as they can. The seniors are required to play the role of knitting competitors. One of the elders will knit the name at highest speed and become knitting legend. People of different ages are also required for playing the role of the families of knitting competition competitors.

The knitting legend is Gartie Gunther.  She is stuck in a hum-drum routine with her husband Vernon. Vernon spends the day watching televised racing while Gartie Gunther spends the day knitting while watching television.

Some of Gartie’s friends hear about the knitting competition and encourage Gartie to participate in it. Both husband and wife accept the challenge and become excited about leaving their boring routines. This is how Gartie enters the competition and wins it.

The casting crew is planning to shoot on the weekend of January 23-25 but they require profiles before January 01, 2016 to shortlist the candidates. The post will be updated by UNCSA if there is a change in the plan of shooting.

Although it is an unpaid job, it is definitely a cool opportunity to work with UNSCR and make your acting skills shine. You don’t need to have good looks or toned up physique for this role. Send your profile to to become a part of the team of this movie. All you need for this role is to be age 50 to 80 years and have free time shooting on weekends in January.

Even if you are not interested in the job, you may know some older people with acting experience, so don’t hesitate to ask them. This may be a good opportunity for anyone to begin a career as a movie star. So don’t wait and send your resume now!
