Tomorrow, the 16th, we are going to have an amazing concert that you don’t miss, so if you want to be a part of it, make sure to fill out the survey ASAP! We are looking for people 18 – 35, All Ethnicity, Male/Female.
NOTE: On Tuesday, the 20th, we are filming a female prisoner scene in Joliet, IL – we may be able to arrange for transportation to pick up at the train station in Joliet on that date (you would need to be able to get yourself to train), and bring you to location, so not having a vehicle does not automatically eliminate you from working on that date, but please be very accurate about your vehicle information to help us decide who we can book.
We will also be using children on the 20th, so make sure you let us know the name of the employer on your child’s work permit.
If we already contacted you about a booking, you do not need to fill out the survey for this episode.
Are you registered with us? If not, go to our website and follow the instructions to register with our company.
YOU MUST DO THIS BEFORE COMPLETING THE SURVEY. If we do not have your registration, you CAN NOT be considered.
This serves as an availability check – not a booking. If we are able to book you, it will be on the project we chose based on your responses.
There are 3 steps involved in working on the show:
1. AVAILABILITY CHECK (OR COMPLETING SURVEY)
2. BOOKING EMAIL
3. CALL INFO
Here’s an explanation of what those steps are!
1. AVAILABILITY CHECK:
A few days before each episode shoots, you will receive an availability check for the dates we need you. You will need to respond with your availability for those dates ASAP. Or complete a survey with your availability.
An availability check does NOT mean you are booked!
Once we receive everyone’s availability, we will book people based on the needs of the production for those days.
2. BOOKING EMAIL
If you are booked, you will receive a BOOKING EMAIL. It will give you the details of the days you are booked to work. You must respond to your booking or you will be replaced.
If you respond to the AVAILABILITY CHECK or FILL OUT SURVEY, and don’t receive a booking email, it means that you are not needed for that particular episode. We will do our best to get a booking email to you no later than 48 hours of the shoot date.
If production has last minute changes, this can sometimes lead to a cancellation. We will do our best to book you at a later date if this happens.
3. CALL INFO
The day before your booking you will receive your CALL INFO. You can expect this email to arrive some time between 8:00PM and 11:00PM. This is because we do not get the official call times until they are finished filming on that current day. When you receive your CALL INFO email you are REQUIRED to respond. This is how we know you have received the information and that you will be there.
