Superhero Hype caught wind of this and we wanted to share it with you as well. This coming Wednesday, New Mexico will be holding a Film and Media day where they will be having open calls for Extra's. There are several productions that will be looking for people, one of them being Joss Whedon's 'The Avengers'.
According to the Film and Media site:
CASTING CALL: We will be having the largest casting call that New Mexico has ever seen in which ALL of New Mexico's working Casting Directors and SAG franchised Talent Agents and/or their representatives will be present. If you would like to be a movie "Extra" in MARVEL's "AVENGERS" or on the Television shows BREAKING BAD or IN PLAIN SIGHT (filmed in Albuquerque area) or any future feature films to be shot in New Mexico, all of the Casting Directors and Extras Casting will be on site to meet you, including EMMY nominated casting directors Jo Edna Boldin CSA and Angelique Midthunder CSA. Photographers will be there to take your headshots for our database for FREE. A representative from the Screen Actors Guild will also be there to answer your questions about working as a professional actor in the local film industry. (10am - 3pm )
ACTING CLASSES: Intensive with actress Lora Cunningham (acting credits include: Nip/Tuck, Book of Eli, Breaking Bad, In Plain Sight) Every hour on the hour; in the casting tent.
Hmm, an acting intensive class that takes place in an hour? Sure. It's pretty easy to learn Meisner, Stanislovski, Adler...yeah, you only need an hour for that.
Well, if you're one of our New Mexico readers and you want to be part of 'The Avengers', and who doesn't, get to the open call. For more information on it, take the jump over to the Film and Media Day page.
See you on the set! (But not really.)
