You Wanna Be In Pictures?

My name is Tina Kerr and I am the Extras Casting Director for a feature film about to start shooting, starring Hilary Swank which will be filmed in the Los Angeles and Long Beach areas of California (seeking Southern California LOCALS ONLY!!)

I am desperately seeking Hispanic/Latin Guys (and a few girls) to be Featured Extras in this movie and am having a hard time getting the word out to the Hispanic community. I am contacting you with the hope that you might be able to help spread the word. If you know anyone who fits the profile or can pass along my casting information, I really appreciate any help you can offer. I have included my casting notice below:

On Location Casting is accepting submissions ASAP for Featured EXTRAS for the feature film based on a true story,"Freedom Writers",starring Hilary Swank.

We are seeking SAG and Non-Union Featured EXTRAS.

We are looking for Hispanic & Latin types, Male and Female, 18-20 age range (17 is OK, if you will be turning 18 by 12/12/05) to look like YOUNG 9th, 10th & 11th grade students. The younger looking the better!! Raw, rough, edgy GANG TYPES with a look and an attitude. We want real people, not pretty polished Hollywood actor types. No experience necessary. Fight or physical contact experience is helpful but not required.

This will be a VERY serious time commitment. If selected, you will be established as one of the featured students in Hilary Swanks' classroom and will be required to work almost every day Monday - Friday from 12/12/05 through 2/9/06. We are only taking (3) days off for Christmas (12/24/05,12/25/05,12/26/05), so you will not be able to go out of town for the holidays. There will also be wardrobe fittings scheduled sometime prior to 12/12/05.

Our director wants to make sure that you have a distinct/interesting personality and are able to interact with our principal actors, so everyone submitted will be required to come in for an audition with our Director. Auditions will take place on Thursday 10/20/05 from 1:15pm to 2:45pm.

This will be filmed in or around Los Angeles & Long Beach areas

Compensation: SAG: $122 for 8 hours plus overtime ($15.25 per hour with 8 hour guarantee)

If you fit the description or know someone who does and would like to set up an audition, please e-mail ASAP a SMALL j-peg photo to olccasting@aol.com. Please be sure to include contact information, height, weight. If selected, someone will get back to you with further audition information.

Thanks for your assistance!
