White Boy Rick Casting Call

We have a lot of needs for this amazing, creative project. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY, we will be discarding all submissions that do not follow exact directions. They will be immediately deleted, please triple check before sending! It's important to know this is a process. We will be going through several steps to hire people as extras. First, we approve the photos, then the AD approves, then we will schedule a video audition for 80% of our extras, most potential extras will be asked to meet with the director, then hired. So if you don’t hear back right away, you are probably going through the process, please keep yourself available if your submitting. This particular director is placing a strong emphasis on the background, he is hand selecting these actors. If you are part of this industry because of the creativity involved, this is one set you will want to be on. When submitting please plan to be flexible and ready to be on set at any time because the director will decide who he wants in the film first, then where he wants them. This film is incredibly creative and unique, I cannot stress enough how much emphasis the director is putting on every single background artist chosen to be in this film. The possibility of upgrades and features is very VERY possible. Pay for BG is minimum wage based on an 8 hour day. Stand Ins and Photo doubles $10 an hour. Also you must be available for a fitting prior to shoot date. This is a period piece and you have to be dressed head to toe. Fitting times will be assigned once you are cast. Some additional instructions- Photo Instructions When you submit pictures. Please avoid headshots. The director wants real people. Make sure they are current photos and candid shots. Also do not send these through a mobile phone, when we receive them they are blurry and we can not show that to our director. Any time you submit on this project or for the future, they should not be blurry. Do not submit pics that have anyone besides you in it. Do not submit photos with borders of Instagram, snapchat, fb etc Do not submit photos with sunglasses or hats, we need to see what you look like. Try and look like what you are sending, if you are submitting for a Wino a nice preppy headshot won’t work. Sometimes looks can be versatile but think about your approach. Other Instructions We can’t have well groomed, anyone interested should grow their hair out and grow sideburns!! This is a period piece. In the 80’s. We can’t have anyone with Neck Ink or sleeve tattoos or dreads. As much as I love you all, please do not write me paragraphs, follow the exact instructions. Again if you leave out your location, phone etc, you will have to be deleted. IF YOU ARE ALREADY BOOKED DO NOT RESUBMIT, IF YOU HAVE SUBMITTED BEFORE PLEASE NOTE THAT, WE MAY HAVE YOU FILED IN A LOOK BOOK ALREADY!! Submission Instructions: Email: [email protected] Subject should be the DATE you are submitting for. If multiple include all dates. Include your name, phone, location where you reside, that you are at least 18 years of age unless we are specifically asking for children. And 2-3 photos of yourself. (No more and follow photo instructions above) IMPORTANT AS WE SAID DIRECTOR IS SELCTING EVERYONE, PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU ARE OPEN FOR ANY PART BY PUTTING ANY IN THE BODY OF THE EMAIL.
