Today has seen the news emerge that the people behind the upcoming film adaptation of Max Brooks’s War War Z are looking for extras for when they film in Falmouth next month. The try-outs are happening this coming Saturday and Sunday at Truro School.
Apart from sending some info and a photo off to the casting agency involved, which I’m doing later, I’m going to be planning on what to take with me for the day. After all, I suspect it’s going to take them a while to sift through everyone. Here’s what I plan to have with me:
- Folding chair.
- Drink and food.
- Sun lotion or umbrella depending on weather.
- Clothing (very important).
- A big book.
- My handbag.
- MP3 player.
Not entirely sure what kind of things the extras will up to. If you’re in, there’s a chance that you’ll have to cut your hair off, which I’m cool with as I don’t mind almost looking like a victim of a terminal illness for a while. My hair grows back pretty quickly. There has been a hint that they’d like people with experience in things like the military or even the RNLI, but that it’s not essential.
If I was chosen to be an extra I would have to cope with filming for a week or so from 6th to 14th August. It would be paid.
Why do I want to be an extra in World War Z? Is it because Mr Brad Pitt might be around and it’s paid? Nope, it’s because it’s a zombie movie.
