The Bad Batch Extras Casting Call01 May 2015
By Eva Ara˙jo (Web correspondent)
If you ever dream of experiencing the making of a movie but with no intention of making it into the entertainment industry, then being a movie extra may be the job for you.
In the Imperial Valley (Brawley), many people from ages 18 and over, lined up outside the Best Western Plus for a chance to act as an extra for the movie "The Bad Batch". Filming will commence next month in Niland and Bombay Beach.
Being an extra is not easy, since it takes a lot of hours and patience to great a believe and organic envioroment for all the action to happen.
The process is simple and fast. Some instrutions, some photos and data collected.
For some people it's a new experience and for others, like Serafin Fregoso, a Marine veteran from Holtville, it's not: "I'm a big fan of Jim Carrey, It's an experience. How often are you ever involved in movies?"
Film Commissioner Charlotte Stewart is also hopeful that the experience "Gives different people an opportunity to experience what it's like to be on set".
We are certain it's a very unique experience...
And what about you? Have you ever been an extra in a movie? Tell us your experience as an extra in a Jim Carrey movie in our forum. We would love to hear your opinion.
We at JCO will keep you updated as more news come.
