Another movie set is coming to Fernie and they’re on the hunt for extras.
The film is a project put together by Kokanee’s marketing team, titled The Movie Out Here, and will feature several locations around town, including The Royal and Big Bang Bagels. Shooting will take place from September 4 to 15 and just over 90 extras will be needed.
Extras Casting Director, Laurie Pavon-Solis, will be holding a casting call sometime during the second week of filming to cast extras to work for one or more days between September 12 and 15. She’s looking for anyone willing to act in the background as bartenders, bar patrons, and coffee shop visitors. Pavon-Solis is also on the lookout for a few more specific roles, including a Sasquatch double and in her words, “three homely looking wannabe cougars.”
Pavon-Solis has contacted the Elk Valley Employment Centre and will be working with them in an effort to employ community members already looking for work. “It’s not always about who I want, I’m more interested in who needs it,” she said.
A casting date has yet to be set but anyone interested in being an extra can contact Laurie Pavon-Solis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
