October 27th, 2021Movie extras needed
A FEATURE film, In God’s Care, is being shot in Hepburn Shire in November and December – and they need extras!
Harvest Pictures Group co-CEO Tony Coombs said the film was inspired by tragic and true events which happened in the mid-90s but the story line was being kept under wraps for the time being.
A number of well known, along with emerging Australian actors, have already signed up for the project.
Mr Coombs said the film was being produced in towns around Hepburn Shire including Daylesford, Hepburn, Dean, Kyneton, Yandoit and Franklinford.
“The rural charm and classic streetscapes were an important aspect in the decision-making process of the producers, understanding the film is set early 1990s,” he said.
“The authenticity and condition of original buildings’ exterior and interior, rather than contrived production dressing, was paramount in this decision.”
Mr Coombs said one of the producers of the film, Lauren Simpson of Iris Arc Pictures, who is also the president of Women In Film & Television Victoria is keen to find a limited number of 8-12 extras across two separate days in late November and early December.
“The producers, cast and crew felt it important to get the community involved further and invite them to be part of the film,” Ms Simpson said.
“Cultural diversity, gender and age is no barrier and people of all backgrounds are welcome to email their information including a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org Attention Maddie – if they would like to be involved.”
Mr Coombs said the project would also support many Hepburn Shire businesses throughout the production including caterers, equipment suppliers, local amenities and accommodation.
