Extras needed for movie filming in Los Alamos

-A A +A

A crew shooting a movie in Los Alamos is looking for locals to play “extras” in a movie that will begin filming Monday.

The MGM Television series “Our Lady, LTD” will be working and filming through Tuesday. Work began Friday. 

Gold signs with black letters “LOCS” will be posted along NM 502, Trinity Drive and Central Avenue to direct film crew in vehicles of all sizes to the Los Alamos County Airport, Los Alamos National Bank (LANB) and staging locations at Los Alamos Main Gate Park and the TRK building at 195 East Road, according to county officials.

Friday and Sunday are prep days at all locations.

Filming will occur on Monday and Tuesday.

All locations will be vacated and restored on Tuesday evening through Wednesday morning.

On Monday morning, filming will begin at the north parking lot of LANB. No public parking will be available in the north lot of LANB during this time. Film trucks will be parked in the alleyway north of the LANB parking lot. 

Filming will move to the Los Alamos Airport property Monday afternoon, and will continue at the airport on Tuesday morning. Film trucks, generators, lights and other production equipment will be located near both film locations. Access to all business and residential driveways will remain clear. 

There is a casting call for paid extras for both days of filming Monday and Tuesday.

All ethnicities are needed for the parts, including ages 18-70. Looks will be corporate, military, tourists, scholarship and other looks.

Pay for work is $92 for eight hours and time and a half after that.

A usual day on the set is 12 hours and actors must be available all day. Those who have vehicles should submit a photo with the year, color make and model of the car. Anyone interested in working as a extra should email their information, including their hair color, hairstyle, name, cellphone number, include a selfie photo, height, weight, shirt size, pant size and shoe size. They would also like a location (city only) and availability. Extras must be available both days. Email information to extras@whiteturtlecasting.com. Include “extras” in the subject line and “LOS ALAMOS.”

Traffic control operations are scheduled for Monday morning at Knecht Street, between Central Avenue and Trinity Drive, between the hours of 6 a.m. and 2 p.m. Traffic control operations are scheduled to be in effect at Airport Road, from NM 502 on Monday afternoon from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., and continue Tuesday morning, from 6 a.m. to about noon.

Los Alamos Police Department staff have been hired to supervise these traffic control operations, during which drivers can expect waits of 3-5 minutes.

Basecamp will be located at the Los Alamos Main Gate Park, adjacent to Entrada Business Park, north of NM 502. Film crews will park passenger vehicles at the TRK Building at 195 East Road.
