With the first month of 2011 coming to an end, how has this year started out for everyone?

Seeking Actress, Early 20's(ish)

I'm looking for an actress that looks to be late teens to early twenties (give or take a few years) for a leading role in a several minute long short film that I'm directing. The part will have very few lines, but a lot of fight choreography and coordination. If you have experience in this, it would be a plus, but not completely mandatory. The part is for a cute/sexy girl, will be dressed sexy, ect. While we'll be safe, expect to get a few bumps and scratches!

About me: I'm a director of both animation and live action films, and do a lot of visual effects and action themed things. Here's the trailer to my last film, James vs Reality: and my animated film The Chronicles of Nerm: .
