Upper Canada Village is opening its doors to Siloam Entertainment from September 10th to the 14th.
Brian Lutes, writer, director and actor, needs 150 to 200 extras for his movie, Percy Harris.
According to Lutes, the movie, a period western, “is a film about a confederate soldier apprehended while returning home from the war and is convicted of a crime he didn’t commit. He’s sentenced to hang.”
“With several twists and turns (sort of a combination of Wizard of Oz meets Rambo), we follow Percy on his quest for freedom, struggling against bounty hunters, brutal terrain and a legion of inner demons.”
To view some of the scene captures, Lutes suggests going to the Facebook page for “Percy Harris the movie.”
So, what about those extras?
Lutes predicts that the biggest number of extras will be needed on Sunday the 11th and Monday the 12th. Shooting happens between 8:00 and 5:30.
“Unfortunately, wardrobe is in limited supply with that many extras… So, we’re asking people to go through their closets and bring the most “period” friendly clothing they have.”
“They could dress as a farmer, cowboy, or townspeople.”
