With production for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay about to move to Europe, a casting call has gone out for extras in Berlin. We have a rough translation of the casting call below:
We are seeking actors for a big Hollywood production which is shooting in association with Studio Babelsberg in Berlin. The shoot is for early summer in the studios and also in the region of Berlin/Brandenburg. Unfortunately we can’t tell you more at the current time about this really big production. We are seeking about 1,000 actors, mostly males between the ages 18-65. We are seeking ‘character’ and ‘living’ faces- you don’t need to be a model! We are casting people living in the Berlin/Brandenburg area, mostly males, Africans, Asian (including Thai, Indian, Chinese, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Japanese, etc.), Arabs / Persians, southern Europeans, Turks, South Americans, Latinos, Hispanics and many African Americans. If you are Caucasian you can also apply. We are seeking mostly males but if you are a woman you can also apply and you may be called to the shoot.
Prerequisite for all applicants is a thin look! Otherwise there are no restrictions, the movie is not historical, any person may keep his hair; piercings or tattoos don’t matter. For the shoot, you will be on set 1-3 days with 55 euros per day. If you have more time you may be needed on set for more than three days.
There will be a large casting call (free!) on Saturday, 26.04. 2014, 10:00 to 14:00 at DELPHI FILMPALAST Kant Strasse 12a 10623 Berlin-Charlottenburg
For casting you do not sign up, you just come, fill out an application, take 3-4 photos, and then hope to get a call. You don’t need to sing or dance at the audition.
Thanks to Jabberjay Vivien for this tip! While we can’t confirm this for sure, Vivien says there are no other large productions in Berlin at this time. Filming will first move to Paris before going to Berlin, which would explain why the casting call is not until later this month.
Since they’re mostly looking for men and Gwendoline Christie was just cast as Commander Lyme, what do you think this is for? A large army siege in District 2, perhaps?
