BE IN A FEATURE FILM WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY SIMON WEAVING!!!

By ChristianDoran - 30 April 2009 7

100 extras are needed this Saturday the 2nd of May at the National Museum of Australia from 1pm until 3pm.

The scene is the opening to the 90 minute film ‘The Competition’. We are creating a live studio audience for a fictional television show called ‘Band in Australia’ and you could help this Canberra made independent feature film look incredible by coming out after lunch and showing us some support.

The fictional show is much like Australian Idol so you’ll be holding up banners and cheering while a band plays (Canberra’s own Alchemist). The judges will make their decision and you’ll boo or cheer according to their judgement. It’s going to be a lot of fun so bring all your friends and family of all ages because you’ll all be on screen in the end.

If you wanted to make a banner yourself the judges names are Sebastian (grumpy judge) and Kev (ex-rocker) or ‘Jail Johnson’ (Sebastian) and ‘Airplane Plummer’ (Kev). Make something great and you might get a close up.

Where: National Museum of Australia
When: This Saturday 2nd of May, 1pm to 3pm
Why: To support a feature film made in Canberra and get in a film that will be in the cinema!

The Competition is Produced by John Frohlich and Simon Weaving with the support of The Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT).

Well, technically there was. They just didn’t film them until after all us extra-y types had buggered off.

I think the original plan was to have the band playing in front of the audience, but the problems they ended up having with the you-beaut RED camera put them so far behind schedule that they had to rush things through.

“cheering while a band plays (Canberra’s own Alchemist)”

THERE WAS NO BAND!

Oh, something just made a hell of a lot of sense to me….

“The fictional show is much like Australian Idol………….”

That was enough for me. 😉

Considering that John Frohlich is involved, I’m sure Crazy Chester will be going along to cheer them on though.

Considering they give very little away about the plot, Mr Evil, on what are you basing this assessment?

Sounds like crap!
