Two casting calls have been sent out in the city.
Men 19 years and older, a woman 20-to-34 years of age and boys and one girl seven to nine years old are needed for non-speaking roles in the feature film Red Snow, which will be filmed in the Kamloops region from May 7 to May 26.
They are non-speaking roles portraying Taliban rebels, guards and military. Beards and gun handling or military experience are preferred but not necessary.
The children would portray Afghan boys and girls and would be required for about three days during the filming period. The girl would also portray an Afghan child and would be required for May 7 only.
The casting session is on Saturday, May 5, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Plaza Hotel, 405 Victoria St.
Those applying must be Canadians or have a valid work permit, be available for 12-hour days during the week — except for the child roles — and must have their own transportation. Minors will need a guardian on set.
Photographs will be taken at the casting session but there will be no fees for them.
There’s also a call for people who drive a Chevrolet Silverado for a TV and online commercial.
Those selected will be compensated as a professional actor for travel accommodation and meals.
Submission deadline is May 11 at firstname.lastname@example.org, with Chevrolet Silverado, your name and city in the subject line.
Submissions must include name, age, contact phone number, casual photos of your family and vehicle, year and model of the Silverado, how the truck gives back or helps out in the community and how you heard about the casting call.
