Below, in italics, is an e-mail I got this morning concerning some The Fighter-related filming going on in Lowell three weeks from now:
Great post about The Fighter. Wanted to give you a heads up that the producers are allowing BeInAMovie.com to invite people to Be In The Movie as spectators during the big fight scenes. No headshots, auditions, stress required.
This is about coming out, having fun, and giving people an opportunity most never get. These are not paid extra positions but it is a great way to experience a day on a real movie set with all the stars and see the industry from the inside out. Plus its all FREE! Anyone 16+ can be our guests on a movie set for a day and receive free food, entertainment and eligibility to win prizes throughout the day's activities.
The filming will be taking place in Lowell, MA on July 14, 15, 16. Participants choose which day to attend and do not need to come to all three days (although, given how fun it is many may come more than one day) A more detailed description of this film is available on our website, http://www.beinamovie.com/movie.php?mtitleid=84 For more info and to sign up, people simply need to visit www.BeInAMovie.com. Spots are filling very fast though so time is of the essence.
I'm guessing the "no audition, no head shot" disclaimer might ensure there won't be a line of people snaking around three city blocks with cabbie hats and Larry Bird jerseys.
