More Extras for THE UNBREAKABLE BOY

Due to a recent schedule change, Freihofer Casting is now looking for additional extras for the first week of filming for the feature film THE UNBREAKABLE BOY now in production in the Oklahoma City area.

Told in the charmingly unpredictable voice of an autistic teen with a rare brittle bone disease, THE UNBREAKABLE BOY is a funny and inspiring true story of a young couple stumbling through parenthood, who find constant inspiration from the joy and optimism of their spectacularly unique son.

The film is written and directed by Jon Gunn and produced by Andy Erwin, Jon Erwin, Jerilyn Esquibel, Kevin Downes and Peter Facinelli.

Strict health and safety procedures, following all union guidelines, will be followed on set.

Pay for extras is $80/day. Anything over 8 hours on set will result in additional pay at $10/hour.

ALL APPLICANTS MUST BE COMFORTABLE WEARING MASKS AND PRACTICING SOCIAL DISTANCING AND SELF ISOLATION AS BEST AS POSSIBLE!

ALL PERSONS MUST BE WILLING TO TEST FOR COVID-19 TWO DAYS PRIOR TO FILMING. TESTING WILL BE PAID AT $20/PERSON AND WILL CONSIST OF A SIMPLE MOUTH SWAB. THE TESTING IS A WALK-UP WITH NO APPOINTMENT NEEDED. IT TAKES LESS THAN 5 MINUTES.
