So did all of you bring in your own photo(s) for the casting call at the Terrace? Where did you have them taken? How much? Or did you print them yourself?

took a photo of myself at arm's length with a digital camera, had it printed at Walgreens.

Say, that reminds me, I haven't gotten my check for the shoot yet... Suprise fun money should be on the way.

Were you wearing the requested garb? And what did they initially require? 6x9's?

i was wearing a shirt & tie, so it was the requested garb but also what I normally wear.

I gave 'em a 4x6. there were plenty people in line with me at the casting call who just had regular photos in hand. I kinda chuckled to myself when I noticed that 4 young women in front of me all had photos with boyfriends cropped out. I honestly can't imagine how sad a life must be when the only photos someone has are of them standing behind someone else.

It doesn't specify what to wear when sending in photos for this second casting call.

I never got around to sending in my picture to be part of the 2nd casting call for extras. Oh well.
So anyone here extras in the Madison filming?

I was supposed to be a standin this week, but I'm still waiting for a call. I've heard that their schedule is a bit screwed up right now, bouncing around the state. I did some stand-in work last week, and got to hold a tommy gun!

The US Postal service LOST my paycheck for the day of work I did, so my day in Darlington was a free ride for them.

The production never called when the letter bounced back. I've got no contact info for them at all here.

Ryanwiz, were you one of the standins up at Mirror Lake? I don't recognize your login name.

This has been a once in a lifetime opportunity. So much fun seeing how movies are made, and actually participating in it. And to add a touch of star worship, I had a wrong impression of Christian Bale the person, drawn from roles and little snippets of stories. On the set, he was very serious about his work, but friendly and nice, even to us idiot standins. Oh, and he ate a bratwurst! We'll make him a Sconnie!

Nope, didn't work up at Mirror Lake.
I was a "reporter" on the Capitol steps, a passer-by in the State Street 1st Floor hallway, and a pedestrian in the streets of Columbus.
