Is Your Car a Movie Star? Casting Call for Cars For Computer Chess Movie

Ok, its not Deathproof II, but its still a chance to have some fun and get your 1965 to 1982 model year classic started on a career in movies!

The film is called "Computer Chess" and is about a computer chess tournament that is set in 1980. Writer/director Andrew Bujalski is a local award-winning filmmaker that The New York Times has called "the voice of a generation" and "one of the most influential directors of the past decade."

They are looking for vehicles with model years between 1965 and 1982 that are available on 8/26 or 9/1. The film will be shot here in Austin in the next few weeks, so don't delay. 

Now, don't expect wads of cash, limo rides and the hollywood red carpet treatment. This is an independent, limited budget film. However, you the owner, are welcome to hang out on set during shooting and join the cast and crew for meals, as well. They can even offer a modest gas stipend to cover the fuel costs of your gas guzzler! But wait, there's more! Everyone involved will be credited in the film.

"So, how do I sign up," you say? Well, you can start by contacting Catherine at the email address listed!
