An African American man, over the age of 18 and 5'4" or under, is needed to be a stand-in in the feature film THE MUSTARD SEED, set to begin filming Tuesday in Guthrie.

Tuesday, Sept 4
Tuesday - Friday Sept. 11-14
Tuesday Sept 25
Friday & Saturday Sept 28-29
Tuesday - Friday, Oct 2-5
 
The faith-based film, directed by legendary television director Rich Correll (HANNAH MONTANA, FULLER HOUSE) stars Academy Award-winning actress Mira Sorvino (MIGHTY APHRODITE, ROMY & MICHELLE'S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION), Kevin Sorbo (HERCULES: THE LEGENDARY JOURNEYS, GOD'S NOT DEAD).  Austyn Johnson (THE GREATEST SHOWMAN, THE POST), Peter Coyote (A WALK TO REMEMBER, ERIN BROCKOVICH) Burgess Jenkins (THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, NASHVILLE) and Paul-Mikel Williams (WESTWORLD).
 
Stand-ins must have  their own transportation, and should be local to, or willing to work local to, the Guthrie, OK area. Housing is not provided.  
 
Stand-ins work very closely on the set of the film, standing in for the actors while the camera and lights are adjusted in between takes.  They need to have similar height, hair color and skin tones of the actors they are standing in for. Stand-ins are very important members of the crew and it is very important the stand-ins stay constant during filming. 
 
It is a great way for an actor to closely watch the main cast work on a daily basis, and needless to say is a wonderful learning opportunity.
 
THE MUSTARD SEED is a faith-based drama about 12-year-old Sara Hopkins, the most devoted member of her family. On a trip to visit her grandfather, Sara is convinced that she sees God near the bank of a river at her grand-dad's favorite fishing spot. Coupled with this vision, she finds herself able to bring a dead bird back to life. Of course, no one in her family believes her, but as the days pass, Sara is able to cure a number of other people who have faith in her "sighting." Soon, her family, the locals, even the press are clamoring to know more about this little girl "who can perform miracles." 
 
Pay for stand-ins is a flat rate of $125/day for up to 12 hours on set. Anything over 12 hours will incur overtime.
 
Stand-in must be over the age of 18.
