ST. MARYS —The Coastal Georgia Film Alliance has put out a call for extras for the filming of “Preserve,” an apocalyptic story that takes place 170 years after a disaster has driven humanity underground. Survivors finally emerge to the surface and seek safe harbor in an unwelcoming world.
Filming will start at 10 a.m. Sunday at old paper mill site in St. Marys, 1100 Osborne Road.
The Alliance is seeking adults between the ages of 18 and 55 who are physically fit, as they will be playing roles that require running. According to Barbara Ryan, CGFA talent coordinator and vice chair, the scene calls for between 60-75 extras, all on a volunteer basis.
“Participants will be asked to wear their grungiest ‘survival clothes,’” Ryan said. “And on-site makeup artists will do the rest to bring the illusion to life.”
Ryan said the signup for extras will be on a first-respond, first-enrolled basis.
“This is the first movie we’ve coordinated where we’re encompassing the talents of our newly enrolled Alliance partners of Liberty, McIntosh, and Charlton counties,” Ryan said. “Glynn County and northeast Florida residents are welcome as well, so we’re expecting a big response.”
“Preserve” was written by Wayne Degan and is being directed by Brandon Herron, both residents of Coastal Georgia.
