University of Arizona student short film seeking extras for a daytime shoot on Sunday, March 27 near the WIlmot-Broadway area.  No previous acting experience necessary! The scene takes place at an anti-war rally in 1966, so we'll need extras to come dressed in clothing appropriate to that era.  The look we're going for is less like "hippie" and more like "mid-1960s college student."  Here are a couple of wardrobe guidelines: 

- NO tie-dyed clothing 
- NO sneakers other than Converse All-Stars 
- NO unnatural hair colors 
- NO clothing with any sort of message, writing, logo, or picture. 
- NO T-shirts 

Summer dresses are good, as are peacoat style jackets. For those willing to dress a little more formally, a Jackie Kennedy look is also appropriate (blouses, sweaters, skirts, etc). Closed-toed heels are typical for the era, as are sandals. 

Your best bet is a just pair of well-fitting jeans and a tucked-in collared button up shirt. Dress shoes and Birkenstock-style sandals are the safest footwear options. 

Other than that, you're free to have fun coming up with a wardrobe that suits the period.  Here are a couple of reference photos that might help: 

Extras should be prepared to arrive at noon and stay until 6:00.  There will be a complimentary meal during this time as well as free drinks and snacks.  You are free to bring anybody else that might be interested, but PLEASE let us know if you do so we can plan the meal accordingly. 

Thanks again!  Please reply to this ad with how many people you plan on bringing and we will respond with the specific location where shooting will take place.
