Since I’m from the south and I’m sure a lot of southerners are ShockYa fans, I feel like it’s my duty to let y’all know about film opportunities that are in your area. Hollywood seems to look over the south sometimes, but it would seem Hollywood has finally caught on to all the south has to offer.
Yesterday, I posted about a great opportunity for folks in Birmingham, Alabama, and Chattanooga, Tennessee. Today, I’ve got a great opportunity for those in Maplesville, Alabama.
Cypress Moon Productions is currently in pre-production with their newest film, “The Story of Bonnie and Clyde.” The film will be shot in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Missouri, and several cities in and around Selma, Alabama–Marion, Orrville and Maplesville–are being considered.
If you’re interested in being an extra in the film, make sure to be in Marion April 13 and Maplesville April 14.
Casting directors will be at Sowing Seeds of Hope Job Training Center in (1728 S. Washington St, Hwy 45 South in Marion, AL 36756) April 13 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. looking for extras (men, women and children 10 years old and up) for the film. Casting directors will also be at The Maplesville Train, (9499 AL Hwy 22, Maplesville, AL 36750) between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. looking for men, women and children 10 and up for their film.
According to the press release, people interested in being cast should bring these items with them:
All interested parties must bring their photo, contact information and/or resume. People who are not available to attend may mail their information to Cypress Moon Studios at 1000 Alabama Avenue, Sheffield, AL 35660. We will also be accepting applications for crew as well as photos of antique cars dating from 1934 and older. A session for speaking roles will take place in the near future.
“The Story of Bonnie and Clyde” is, according to the release, a new adaptation of the classic love story of fugitives Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker. Lindsay Pulsipher stars as Bonnie Parker and Sean Faris as Clyde Barrow.
