Latinos, Asians African-Americans and Native Americans are needed over the next several days to appear as extras in the feature film LIGHT FROM THE DARKROOM.  Filming is in Oklahoma City.

The film stars Lymari Nadal (AMERICAN GANGSTER) as Blanca and telenovella star Patricia De Leon as Carmen.  Russell Wong (ROMEO MUST DIE, THE JOY LUCK CLUB) will play Li Cheung and BREAKING BAD’s Steven Michael Quezada will play Oscar Sosa.  The film is produced by Nathan Gardocki and directed by Lance McDaniel (CRAZY ENOUGH), Executive Director of the deadCENTER Film Festival.  Casting is by Chris Freihofer, CSA (RUDDERLESS, AUGUST, OSAGE COUNTY, TO THE WONDER).

The film is a faith-based thriller set in Panama.  When a religious pilgrimage turns into a massacre, Dr. Carmen Hill returns home to Panama City to comfort her best friend, Blanca Zamora, and find out what happened. An undeveloped roll of film arrives, providing the only clues to the massacre and forcing the women to confront their faith and fight for their lives.

The story is very respectful of Christianity and the Catholic faith.

Extras are needed to depict Panamanians and Chinese for various scenes between now and August 25.  The film takes place in Panama City and Beijing, China, though all filming will take place in Oklahoma City and the surrounding areas.

All extras will be paid a flat rate of $50 per day for their appearance in the film.

“Most extras are only needed for one day, though some people can certainly work more than that if available and interested,” said Casting Director Chris Freihofer.

If selected to appear in the film, you will be contacted by a member of Freihofer Casting.
