Extras Casting Call – Underground

UNDERGROUND: We need a few more men for our Wedding scene and our Plantation scene. If you can work this coming Wednesday August 31 and Thursday Sept 1 (one or both days) and are between the ages of 18 – 25, African American Male, as a background actor, please let us know right away:

Because this takes place in the 1800s its important that you have a look that can fit the time period (no hair highlights, no visible tattoos, no braces, facial piercings, bright fingernail polish, braids, dreads etc…). We need classic looks.

Background actors need to be local to Savannah GA, or can work as a local (meaning you have local friends/family that you can stay with) as production will not pay for travel.

To apply please follow these steps A.S.A.P.

#1.) Please create a profile at www.makescenes.com, using the activation code: railroad. If you already have a makescenes.comprofile, simply add the new code to be registered for this show: add the code, “railroad”, then click “add project”, then click “save info” (code = railroad). BE SURE TO UPLOAD A PHOTO! We can only book you if we can see what you look like (photo does not need to be professional, just current. A current cell phone photo is fine).

#2.) Email us at: undergroundextras@gmail.com with the heading of the role in which you are applying: ex: “AA Male Wedding Scene”.
