I'll Make You Famous

More

As I've mentioned before my old buddy Neil Drumming is making a movie. Neil is filming tomorrow and Saturday morning and needs extra. Sorry of the late notice. Here are the details:


We will be lining up on Taaffe Place between Myrtle and Willoughby Avenues in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, right near the Pratt University campus. Our costume department humbly requests that all extras try to bring or wear lightweight fall clothing. No heavy jackets. Pants and long sleeves. Preferably no bright colors or logos. 

The call time for extras will be 7:30 a.m. (It's early, yes. But this way, you can participate and still make it in to the office on time.) If you know in advance that you're going to be able to make it, please drop me a line by emailing me or leave confirmation in the comments section below. This is strictly for headcount reasons. You can also just show up. The production will be most grateful either way. 

In addition, we will be staging a mock reading with The Atlantic editor and writer Ta-Nehisi Coates at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 12, at a wonderful bookstore in Soho. If interested, contact us via email and we will provide the location and further details. As my assistant director says often and with gusto: "Let's make a movie, people!"

Come on now. It's your big break.
