If you havent heard from me in a while, its dave from the old group
I just joined this bloody group finally (why do they make it so hard?)
Anyway, there seemed to be interest in that Hybrid nightclub "Mad Max
4 casting call" night. I went along to check it out incase it ever
leads to me being in a movie.
Basically it was a goth party in a gutted out warehouse. It was full
of Goth types, lots of leather, lots of flesh but a really good vibe.
I got the impression half the people there had come for the Mad Max
component of the night. There was a few people who (like me) had few
gothy clothes and improvied as best waws possible.
Basically the "Endorphin Casting call for Mad Max 4" consisted of a
table with an application form to be added to Endorphin's talent
databases. Endorphin appear to be a company that supplies extras and
actors for films and commercial.
Once you filled out the form with contact details, clothes sizes and
other experience. you lined up to have your photo taken by with a
reference number relating to your application form number.
Speaking to a girl (In an absolutley stunning shiny red leather
leotard) who seemed to be working for Endorphin, I didnt get much
information. She was very helpfull but a little vauge when it came to
the finer details.
She basically said that Endorphin were there looking specifically for
the more outraegous Gothy types. In "a couple of months" when Kennedy
Miller wanted extras, They would contact Endorphin who would use
their database to find people and then contact them.
I guess this means that people like me who could only find Black
jeans, doc's and my undersized mouldy 'Brando' leather jacket in an
attempt to look like max will probably be dissapointed. My school boy
haircut and lack of peircings will probably result in Endorphin
turfing my appplication.
Funilly enough, after all the photo taking finished it seemed that
about half the people left as though they only came to try and get
into the movie.
I agree with Les Turner that this wont be the only way of getting
into the MM4 movie if it happens.
Either way, it was a good party with a really great vibe. For someone
who hasnt experienced much of the Goth subculture, I felt really
welcome and really had a great time anyway.
I fimally left at about 4am after dancing for a while like a clown.
Let me know if you want to know anymore about it.
