If only those movies weren't insults to hardcore transformer fans (like me. lol) I'd be interested.

Good luck guys! I would love to try out as a extra, but I have a hectic schedule happening so I cant go. Being a extra is a lot of hard work. My sister was a extra and she can attest to that. You have to be there at a certain time, they will tell you to bring a certain outfit(s). If you dont have one they can provide one for you. You dont get to be up close to the stars. You may be just in a crowd or in some scene that may have a chaotic or casual feel to it. Be prepared to do retakes over and over and over again. They will feed you so you'll be taken care of. Just be prepared for long hours and. If you do go to the audition makes sure to give them a headshot of yourself. Other than that I wish you all the best and I hope you get the part! :thumbup:

Was it just one day that she worked? I would assume they want fresh extras for each scene. As for seeing the movie leads, I don't really care about that. I am interested in seeing how the movie is made though!

In the craigslist ad, it says they will be taking a photo, so all we need to bring is a pen to fill out forms.

It's today and tomorrow and I have work during those times. So I can't make it.

Good luck to those who can make it to the auditions!

It says casting for Extras?


What did you expect, to be Megan Fox's replacement? I mean... it is an audition. To be a background character.

That sucks......

I ended up not going. There was a clean up day at the observatory for the astronomy club I'm in, so I did that instead.

I went on Friday and it was exactly what I thought it would be, but I am now signed up as an extra for the movie. We stood in lines for hours just to go around the corner >.< and then got these sheets and took a picture with a number. I'm really excited to get that call for the first day of shooting, or rather outfitting.

Me too, I like how the lady that "briefed" us leaked out that a new fast and furious movie is being filmed in Puerto Rico.

Friend of mine went. Hope she makes it though. She's pretty short, but that increases her chances of being up front! :D

They are really cool. They have no problem with people taking pictures of the stuff too. Methinks it was some sort of agreement of publicity between the city and the producers.

One thing though, they are really F'n up my commute. Closing down Michigan and the bridge is bad news.
