Back in August, we learned that the story of 2009 Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird is being produced into a feature film called Wild Ride. First things first: the title has been changed to 50 to 1. Secondly: there is currently an open casting call for paid extras. Yes: paid.
Shooting with extras will take place this month on the 12th and 13th, and the 16th through 18th. Extras are not required to be available all of these days – part of the application process includes indicating availability. Rates are $8.00 per hour for the first eight hours of shooting each day, $12.00 for “overtime.”
I'm a little late in getting this information out to interested parties, and for that I apologize – casting is ongoing, but prospective participants have until tomorrow to apply. To do so, got to Heyman Talent at 1205 E. Washington Street, suite 107. Application is open today until 5:00 and tomorrow, Tuesday, from 10:00 am To 3:00 pm. Queries can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
