Not Set in Stone

Film (Full Length) – 2014

In 2013 actor/director Peter Tait invited a team of actors to an Auckland bar to perform a read-through of a script, involving strange aquatic substances and opportunistic robbers. His plan: a film within a film where thespians and real-life bar owners play versions of themselves. At its heart, Not Set in Stone celebrates the actors — their talent, willingness to send themselves up, and generosity towards low budget projects like this one. The in-jokes include screen veteran Greg Johnson as a wannabe actor, and a final curtain cameo by Jacinda Ardern and Oscar Kightley.

I have saved enough money to pay actors $50 each. I would like to pay them a little more. There’s 12 of them. The aim is to shoot most of a feature in one day in a Grey Lynn bar called Friedas, on August 18th.
