Extras are needed to appear in film


Extras are needed to appear in a scene for the locally made film “Midnight Massacre” that will be shot between noon and 7 p.m. Monday at Warren Community Amphitheater.

Because the scene is a funeral and the funeral-goers are poor townsfolk, extras should wear worn-looking clothing, in dark colors, an no visible logos. Persons of all ages are welcome. Travis Bowen is the director of the film. There is no pay, but extras will receive screen credit.

The movie is loosely based on Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” but set in modern times. The scene is Caesar’s funeral. Go to
