The folks making the short film “Layla is Bad” in Sea Bright have put out a late call for extra, um, extras.
Thing is, they especially need them this afternoon, starting around 3p. And they’re looking particularly for families: Moms and/or Dads with kids.
Yeah, short notice.
The draws here for volunteers are these: a chance to visit Chapel Beach Club, one of the swankest beach clubs in this area and a summer getaway to a big-name celeb or two; an opportunity to observe professional movie-making up-close; a chance to appear in a film, perhaps with a Hollywood star of tomorrow; and a free DVD of the movie when it’s finished.
redbankgreen stopped by the set yesterday and had a great time watching the crew shoot a scene in which two young lovers make out and then get into a tiff. Extras in swimwear got to sashay past the camera dozens of times.
If interested, drop by Chapel Beach Club (opposite the Dunkin Donuts, near the foot of the Sea Bright-Rumson Bridge) at 3 and ask for Vik. You’ll need to wear beach attire and bring any beach accessories you might have handy. And expect to stick around for a few hours.
