Extras needed for movie to be filmed in Richmond Hill

The Oprah Winfrey-Steven Spielberg produced Warner Bros Feature Film “The Color Purple: The Musical” is looking for men, women and children of all ages to participate as extras in scenes to be filmed locally. 

Filming will take place March 22  - April 7 (Monday through Friday) between 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. in Richmond Hill, Savannah and Jekyll Island, according to the casting company.

Participation is open to all ages from all walks of life. Some more featured specific types include: those who can portray African Villagers, African American TWIN children, those who can portray British Soldiers, and many other types.

 ALL adult cast, crew, talent and extras MUST be fully COVID vaccinated and have a completed vaccination card in order to work. Paid COVID testing will also be required and provided by production. 

Some roles may require a wardrobe fitting. Filming days are generally based on a 12-hour day so you should have the full day open .

All extras will be PAID. Pay rate is $110 for up to a 10 hour day plus overtime after 10 hours. Meals are provided.

If you would like to participate as an extra, get a behind the scenes look at how a feature film is made and possibly even see yourself on the big screen - be sure to sign up for consideration ASAP as space is limited.
