Would you like to be in the movies?
You have a chance to be an extra in "HeartBreak," which is shooting in Central Florida. It's a collaboration between Dream Vision Studios, a local film production company, and Valencia College's film technology program.
The film seeks extras for two days. There's no pay, but snacks and drinks will be served. Hopefuls must RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The film wants extras at 7 a.m. Wednesday at Que-Phoria, 2050 Semoran Blvd., Winter Park. At 7:30 a.m. Thursday, the film needs extras at Valencia's East Campus in Building 3 (the college's Black Box Theater). The address is 701 N. Econlockhatchee Trail, Orlando.
"HeartBreak" is the tentative title for the film. The plot focuses on a single mom who asks a Vietnam veteran to coach her at billiards; she needs game winnings to pay for her autistic son's medical bills and schooling.
Ralph Clemente, head of Valencia's film program, is directing. Valencia students learn on the job by helping union professionals and working on makeup, wardrobe and props.
Valencia students have joined commercial partners in making these films: "The Way Back Home," "Silver Wings and Civil Rights," "Just Another Day" and "Day One," which starred Kat Dennings of CBS' "2 Broke Girls."
