‘Fillers’ needed for new movie

2015-07-23 06:00

IF a hair and make-up can transform you into a Native American (Indian), you may want to audition for a movie - Gemms - which will be shot in Port Edward later this year.

Fred Roebuck, an agent for Cape Town Film Studios, will hold auditions at Port Edward library on Friday from 9.30am to 1.30pm and then at the Port Shepstone Methodist Church from 2.30pm to 4.30pm.

Requirements are that you have to be between the ages of six and 60, not overweight, have long, black straight hair or hair that can be straightened. Wigs may also be used. You will have to be available on certain days from 24 August to 4 September when the movie will be shot.

“Unfortunately, I can’t reveal too much about the film - only that it’s an overseas company that is making it. It’s a great opportunity for those who are unemployed or earning a low salary­, to earn an income,” said Roebuck.

After tax and commission, each chosen person will be paid not less than R400 a day.

He said the South Coast is becoming famous as a movie-making area because of the great weather and because it’s cheaper to shoot movies in South Africa than it is overseas.

“It’s a win-win situation. Producers want the great weather, locals need jobs and the area needs the economy and tourism boost,” he said.

Auditions are taking place on the lower South Coast as producers are looking for fresh faces.
