Sorry, but we will not cast extras or fly people in from another countrx to walk by in the background, cause that would make no sense financially.

I would have flown over, but you set it up during the school year, but I bet you dont want young people anyway.

Good Luck.

Thanks Slick!

Yeah, it's not really a film for too young people to appear in. 20 years is the limit.

Yes, we're paying actors.


The complete shoot is 6 weeks. (of course, depending on the role, it's much less)

I don't know anything about where it'll be released. Planned is a worldwide release, but it can't be foreseen of course. We'll just have to see.

I am sending my brother to the sight, he is out in LA trying to make it as an actor, this might be a oppurtunity for him to gets some exposure on some real film making.

Thanks for posting this Marco biggrin

Hi Marco,

have you got a production photographer (stills) in place yet.

I'm looking to build up my portfolio. If you haven't take a look at my site:
www.luciddreampictures.co.uk then click 'photography'.

Wow. Never realized back a long time ago when you were asking for name recommendations for the 3d model of the costume that it would turn into something this big. That makes me all the happier that one of the names I suggested got chosen.

Cool, actual proper actors (or there abouts) I'm really looking forward to this one, sounds good.

By the by, I'd be 19 and 9 months when shooting starts, good job I can't act anyway or I'd be frustrated by that smile "Alec Guiness never had this problem" kinda thing.
