This is a reel containing all of my most recent footage, including a commercial for First Bank – “LARP,” footage from a short family film called “Operation New Mom,” a commercial for Optimum Cable – “Midwuls,” footage from a short film called “L.A. Minute,” some stills from an AT&T Commercial featuring Modern Family’s Eric Stonestreet, and a snippet of a recent character reel – “Geek Squad Guy.”
I hope you enjoy what you see. If you’d like to read my writing, visit shoresterblog.wordpress.com. If you want to follow me on Twitter, my screenname is @shorester. Thanks for reading and watching!
Below you will find my acting reel from last year:
Women and Men and Women from Mitch Lerner on Vimeo.
This was finished about a year (or more?) ago but never formally released online for the viewing public. So the story is this: Robby Karol, a dear friend of mine, wrote this play for a show called DreckFest in Chicago. I thought it could be a funny short film, so I handed it off to Mitch and Ross Godwin for them to take a whack at it, under the caveat that I got to play the character named “Asshole Friend.” After a long and hard-fought fundraising process, we ended up with our first short film! The result is Women and Men and Women, which is just as tongue-in-cheek as the name might indicate. If you’ve ever wanted to hear me say the word “bro” about a million times with equally as many variations and catch phrases, this is the place to go. I hope you enjoy!

Former college dorm-mate Dena Trugman asked me for a travel guide for people visiting Los Angeles from out of state on vacation. Here is my response, complete with the details of where you can go for cheap beers, aging film auteurs, and decaying mammals.
