Well, I didn't die last night. I was supposed to be killed by the heroic and slightly psychotic Cassie Banning as I attempted (lamely) to defend the lair of my vamp uber-lord, Lucritia. No joy, though. Because we have so few vampy extras, and fewer all the time it seems, Tony decided not to kill me so that I can haul my sorry carcas into the club just in time to get killed in the climactic fight scene we have affectionatly named “The Wheel of Death“.
I don’t know how many of you all live in the Twin Cities area, but we (Stone Soup Films) have had an unexpected derth of vamp extras. I had a handful lined up, and one by one most of them have fallen to work schedule demands, family obligations, you know, the horrible condition known as “having a life”. J A condition I hope to contract again sometime soon.
Sasha had half a dozen volunteers, and none of her people remain. It’s kind of a bummer.
Anyway, if any of you would like to be vampy extras, we are filming at a club in South St. Paul tonight from 7:00PM to 11:00PM Let me know here in the comments section if you are interested in helping out.
You will need vamp teeth(available at any costume shop. Medium–sized teeth recommended), fitted and ready to go as soon as you hit the set. You will need gothy-cluby-type clothing. You will need to eat before you arrive. And/or bring some cash for food from the kitchen. The club we are filming at has a restaurant, and they stipulated that all food consumed in the shoot should be ordered from the restaurant. Small price to pay for such a location. The food is not cheap.
You will need to sign a waiver and collect a dollar (compensation for contractual purposes) to protect us from liability and for permission to use your image. If you are under the age of 18, your parents will need to sign the forms as well.
The final requirement is that we would need you to come both tonight, and tomorrow….for continuity purposes.
If you have any physical injury or limitations that would prevent you from vigorous movement and/or falling to the ground repeatedly (you will all be “killed” in the course of the shoot), you shouldn’t do this. If you have any questions about whether or not you should do this, consult your doctor.
If we don’t get enough extras, we’ll just have to do some creative choreography.
So if you have time tonight and tomorrow night, let me know, and you can be in the movies. Oh yeah, and you can see my new outfit. I love it so very, very much.
