EXTRAS WANTED

NIGERIAN WEDDING EPISODE


Thanks for your interest in being an extra on HULU’s Shrill for our Nigerian wedding episode! We’re convinced it’ll be the biggest, most exciting episode of the season. Please read the information below and submit your photos+information so we can start the process of hiring you!

WHAT IS THIS:
We need lots of people to act as the extended family+friends of Fran (Lolly Adefope) and other guests at her cousin’s wedding. All roles are nonspeaking.
The work will take place over 3 days, July 16-18, with a wardrobe fitting for some roles on July 15th. Our wedding planner has lined up food, drink, DJ, decor and costumes for us – the last piece we need is you!

WORK DATES: July 15-18 2019

LOCATION: Troutdale, OR

PAY: $100 for 8 hours/day. Additional pay of $12.50/hr for hours beyond 8. Most days will be 10-12 hours long.

WHO WE NEED:

We’re looking for these specific kinds of extras:

Aunts
Uncles
Cousins
Friends
Kids
Babies over 12 months of age


A few facts about extra-ing:

  1. Extra-ing takes all day long and mostly what you do is wait, sit and wait some more.  Bring a book, or if you can’t read, a shiny object to stare at. You might bring an electronic object, but keep in mind that electricity will be limited and the extras wrangler (who will, honestly, wrangle you like you’ve never been wrangled before) will not have time to adjudicate arguments about “hogging the AC” between extras.
  2. It happens during the day, during the night, on weekdays and weekends – often during times when you might otherwise be working or in school.  
  3. You’ll need to become an actual employee of the production, so if you are on the run from the law, accept only cash or have any other reason you couldn’t bring the documents needed to fill out the IRS’s I-9 and W-4 forms, you can’t be an extra.  I blame either the 1%, the IRS, or the Gnomes of Zurich, depending on what blogs I’ve been reading.
  4. We might contact you on very short notice, like, the night before, hours before, or any time.  If you’ve already made plans for that time, we’ll be sad, but totally, totally understand in a not at all guilt-trippy or passive aggressive way.
