A number of people are needed to serve as recurring extras for the feature film SARAH’S OIL . They will serve as townspeople in several scenes throughout filming. The film is scheduled to begin production soon in the Bartlesville, and Okmulgee, Oklahoma areas.

The film is looking for people who can work several days throughout filming, with the dates of July 5 and July 15 as mandatory. Other dates will be sprinkled in based on availability. The film is on a Monday-Friday work week, so no weekend dates are available.

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 expected to last about an hour and only one fitting will be required for these multiple dates.
