Former football players, aged 30-40, are needed to appear in multiple days of the feature film Next THE TURKEY BOWL, set to begin filming later this week in Norman, Oklahoma City and the near vicinity.
These extras are highly featured in the film and recur over several days. There will be scenes where these players strap on helmets and pads and actually play some downs. Please have experience playing football at either the high school, collegiate or pro level.
The football players preferably are available all of the following days, but a combination of several days is just fine: 3/14, 3/26, 3/29, 4/3, 4/4, 4/5, 4/6. PLEASE INDICATE ON YOUR SUBMISSION WHICH DAYS YOU ARE AVAILABLE TO ATTEND.
The film is about a 30-something urbanite, pulled back to his rural hometown by his high school buddies on Thanksgiving to finish The Turkey Bowl - an epic football game against their cross-town rivals that was snowed out fifteen years prior.
