Talent agencies seek extras in Umina
At least two Sydney talent agencies held an open "casting call" for extras in Umina last week.
One agency was looking for people of both sexes aged over 18 years from within the area for what was described as a "huge TV show".
"We are looking for people ... who are willing and able to work for three days straight doing whatever the director may need them too, like eating the same food and drinking the same drinks for three days straight whatever that may be (burgers and milkshakes at a diner etc)," said ISpry Agency founder Ms Miriam Spry.
"This is an action scene and all extras must be comfortable being around armoury weapons and approve of the above before we see them.
"Once they are cast, they are locked in for three days."
Shooting would be in early March.
Another agency was looking for "Umina-Ettalong locals ... aged 50 plus ... couples welcome" for a "feature film".
