A new round of background performers have been announced for a major feature film, now shooting in Oklahoma. They need to be people who have not yet appeared as extras in the film.
Filming will be in the Pawhuska, and/or Fairfax, OK area.
The persons selected would need to attend a costume fitting in Bartlesville, OK, sometime during the week of June 14-18.
While the scenes are taking place on or about certain dates, some of the people will be invited back to appear in several more days of the film, based on the person’s availability. Relatively open availability on Mondays-Fridays is preferred, but not mandatory. There is no filming on weekends.
Pay is a guarantee of $100/day for up to 10 hours per day, per person. Any weeks over 40 hours incur overtime.
Covid testing and wardrobe fitting is also paid at a guarantee of $40/day up to 4 hours per person.
Travel and lodging are not provided.
Covid testing is required, regardless of vaccination status. Testing site is at the production office in Bartlesville.
BREAKDOWN OF ROLES
WEDDING DANCERS – Males or females, aged 20-80. Looking for country two-steppers or those experienced in light-duty western swing.

Must be available June 19 for rehearsal (paid at a guarantee of $50 for up to 5 hours) and June 21 for filming. Possibly could be used June 22 and on future dates, based on availability,
WEDDING GUESTS – Males or females, aged 18-80. Great faces, great 1920s looks. Hairstyles and hair colors can’t be too modern, or must be easily adaptable.
