Nicholas Sparks movie adaptation filming in region

Published: Thursday, June 26, 2014 at 12:18 PM.

For each person that shows up, the film will donate money to a local charity. To sign up, the organization must contact Siu. If approved, they can then recruit people to attend the shoot, a list of which will be submitted to the film. To apply, email with “Charity Organization Interested in Rodeo Scenes” in the subject line.

Although the extras work, which could last up to 12 hours per day, is unpaid, volunteers who attend will be eligible for prize giveaways and be fed while on set.

“If someone knows that their 10 or 12 hours of extras work helps a charity, they are going to be happy to stay and (be a part of filming),” Siu said.

Organizations will be asked to supply their volunteers’ names, emails, phone numbers, age groups (adult, teen, or child no younger than 10) and how many days they can attend. Information about meeting dates and times will be sent to them in the coming weeks.

To apply to be a paid extra in the film, individuals must register at and follow Marty Siu Casting’s Facebook page for up-to-date casting calls.
