Have you always thought you ought to be in pictures? You may get your chance this weekend, as a University of Windsor graduate is seeking volunteers to act as extras in her first feature-length film.
Sarah Manschot (BA Communication Studies 2004) is shooting a scene in Erie Hall in the afternoon of Saturday, January 14. She is looking for people to fill the background. It is set in a film festival, so adults of all ages are welcome, but no children.
“The film takes place in late summer and early fall, so extras should dress for that weather,” she says. “T-shirts, jeans or light long-sleeves shirts are fine, just nothing too wintry, like sweaters or boots.”
Manschot is the founder of I’m Just Sayin’ Productions. She describes her current project as a comedy-drama, similar in tone to Zach Braff’s 2004 Garden State: “It tells the story of two people falling in love.”
