Uma Thurman lent her considerable talents to Jameson Whiskey’s First Shot international short film competition this year starring in three short films written by aspiring filmmakers. Now in its third year, First Shot gives breaks to talented writer and directors from South Africa, Russia and the US looking for their ‘First Shot’ in the film industry. Previously two-time Academy Award winner, Kevin Spacey and Academy Award nominee, Willem Dafoe have starred in the competition’s films, with Uma Thurman this year taking the lead role in each winners’ film. All three filmmakers were flown to Hollywood in June where they worked with the actress to shoot their short, which will be shown at a special screening in LA and released on YouTube.
