Extras needed for Short Film

Since Jack Burdell is all about helping people to achieve the best possible results in the work they want to create, I thought I’d pass on this casting call for extras in a cracking new short film … Let’s get the people who want to be on camera together with the people who need people; and let the magic happen.

Below are all the juicy details from the production manager. Thank you, and good night.

Hi there,

I’m currently working as production co-ordinator on a short film called ‘The Consolation of Orion’. We are looking for extras for our Dublin city centre locations.
The short film is about two men who spark a strange, yet beautiful friendship regardless of their own personal problems. It is written and directed by Siobhan McMahon and produced by Dave Clarke.
Unfortunately, due to the tight budget, we are not in a position to be able to pay our extras today. 
Our crew are senior and experienced, with past experience including ‘Ps I love You’, ‘Becoming Jane’, ‘Noreen’ and ‘Raw’. It is a great opportunity for anyone wanting to eventually get involved in the industry. It’s a great way to experience a professional working set.
What we are looking for?

We’re looking for girls and boys from the age of 16 to 30. Student, couples, housewives, people waiting at the bus, that sort of stuff. Past experience is not needed, anyone is welcome.
When would this be on? 

Filming is from Friday 2nd to Monday 5th March.
We are still finalising the schedule, so specific dates for extras are yet to be confirmed. Extras are NOT needed for all four days, but may be broken down into specific days. (ie, two 20yr girls for saturday and monday)
Tea & coffee & snacks will be provided on the day to make sure nobody runs out of steam and keep smiling!
If anybody in your drama group is interested, I would ask them please to email me at sileculley@gmail.com
Thank you & all the best,
Síle Jane Culley
production co-ordinator ‘Orion’
Normal service on the blog will resume shortly; I will be rehabilitating myself to real (non-festival) life through the means of theatre and film.
