Take 3

Short Film (Full Length) – 2007

M
Mature

Ingeniously unfolding three tales in unison, Take 3 follows a trio of young asian-Kiwi actors on one horrifying day of auditions. Director Roseanne Liang (My Wedding and Other Secrets) mines comedy from the competitive, cookie-cutter world of casting, while questioning the way minority actors are asked to perpetuate old-fashioned stereotypes. The stars are My Wedding lead Michelle Ang, Katlyn Wong (comedy A Thousand Apologies), and Li Ming Hu (Shortland Street doctor Li Mei Chen). Take 3 won special mention in the Generation 14plus section at Berlin film fest.

... and he fires one back at you. Bam! Dodge them. Jump. Jump higher. Ok spin around.
– Casting director (Michael Lowe), giving acting instructions to an increasingly bewildered Michelle Ang
