Anyone interested in being an extra in a locally filmed movie may find it in their best interest to visit Cruizer’s in Winamac around 4 p.m. ET on Sunday, as Director Daniel Murphy told WKVI that they are looking for extras to help fill up the restaurant for a scene. Murphy said they’re looking for adult extras, but the younger crowd isn’t being left out; he’s looking for extras for two more scenes, one to be shot at Star City Bar and another at a fabricated house party in Winamac.
Murphy said the restaurant should seat about 40 people, so if too many people show up, he said they’ll have to turn people away. The dates for filming the other two scenes have not yet been set, but Murphy explained they have received permission to do the filming; it’s just a matter of setting a schedule.
Murphy explained the filming has just gotten underway and they have a long way to go before the movie is complete.
“Right now, we’re not really that far. We really just started filming two or three weeks ago; we’ve only really got four scenes done. This weekend, we’re doing quite a bit, but we’re just getting started with the filming,” said Murphy.
Murphy, who last directed “And Then You Die,” a horror movie filmed entirely in Pulaski and Fulton counties, said this project has been a completely different experience but after having wrapped up his first film which premiered in March in Winamac, he said it’s been easier this time around.
“There’s a lot more people to round up; it’s kind of a slightly bigger scale than the last time around, but it seems to be going a little bit easier because we’ve done one,” said Murphy.
He said with the experience he gained from working on his previous film, he’s able to branch out more with this project. Murphy said he’s hired a special effects expert, and with more equipment and a bigger budget, he’s hopeful this movie will be spectacular.
The film follows the story of Kari, Lydia, Chloe and Molly – four girls who play in a band called the Lolita Dolls. Their best friend Lenny accompanies them on a road trip, during which they visit an old Sanitarium to shoot a music video. They were never seen again.
