Additional Extras Needed Soon for SARAH’S OIL

Several more needs for extras have been identified for background performers for the feature film SARAH’S OIL. Filming will be in the Bartlesville, and Okmulgee, Oklahoma areas. No experience is necessary.

Due to costuming restraints, the individuals need to be on the thinner side. Woman cannot be over a dress size of 12. Men’s waistlines, measured from the navel and not the hip, must be between 30-36 inches.

Pay is guaranteed at $140 for the day, not to exceed 12 hours. Anything over 12 hours incurs overtime pay. Additionally, those selected will be asked to attend a costume fitting in advance of filming. Fittings are in Tulsa, OK beginning Tuesday, and those selected will be compensated an additional $30 for the fitting. Fittings are expected to last about an hour.

Hotel and travel is NOT provided.
