Rooftop Films is shooting our 2015 Summer Series trailer on Monday, May 11, and we need up to 100 extras to appear in the climactic scene—setting up a show on the roof of one of our venue, Industry City (Sunset Park, Brooklyn). You may help carry some chairs and equipment, but mostly we just need people to hang out at a fake Rooftop show and pretend to be at a real Rooftop show. A select few people may be “featured” extras, who will get to embody cinema itself. (We can’t reveal the premise now, but you’ll see—it will be fun.)
For some history and examples, take a look at our past trailers on Vimeo.
We will need people May 11 (rain date May 12) for up to four hours, but it could be less. It will be in the evening, but exact times are yet to be determined (roughly between 5pm and midnight, more likely 7-10pm).
In exchange for your participation, we will provide you with free snacks and drinks on the evening of the shoot, and one season pass to Rooftop Films 2015 festival.
If you are interested and available, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get back to you with details.
