Mail from Tarzan hopeful, DeWet Du Toit announcing his short promo films on YouTube

"Please check out my self created Tarzan short film in association with Zodiac Media Productions, as it's only few minutes, but it's really a must see, especially at the end. If this doesn't convince anyone then nothing will. I believe that this isn't just an audition tape, this is something which says: 'This is me as Tarzan!' I hope that this would convey my passion for the role and for the films."
