Beau Bonneau Casting is seeking SF Bay Area local with Ear to Chin Length Hair in their 20s – early 40s for paid extra work on “Big Eyes” a Tim Burton film shooting August 28–30 in San Francisco. This is a period film reflecting the late 1950s – 1960.

The film's story focuses on the artistic coupling of Margaret (Amy Adams) and Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz).

Walter became famous in the 1950s and 60s for paintings featuring saucer-eyed kids, though it was the shy Margaret who really did the work. Margaret eventually tired of the misplaced credit, which led to a divorce and a heated court battle to prove authorship of the paintings.
