Discord the film - Extras Needed (Eugene)

Hi All,
We're producing a short film called Discord. The movie is about ninety percent in the can, but we have a few scenes left and we need some featured extras with character. The following non-speaking roles will be cast. Please send pics if you'd like to be considered for a part.

Lady with Kids: A woman of any age, must have two or three children all under the age of ten. The script calls for the woman to be ethnic, but race is non-crucial for this role.

Patriotic Fella: An older, gruff dude. The type who would ride a chopper. The script calls for him to be wearing a shirt with an American flag, so if you own one, that's a plus!

Delyla: A Mexican woman between the ages of 22 and 28. No lines but will be featured prominently in the film in photos.

Bar Creeps: A group of guys willing to smoke cigarettes and act drunk outside a bar for one scene.

Bloodbank cashier: A woman or man of any age. We're not going to be picky about this part.

So those are the parts we need; don't hesitate to let us know if you're interested. Remember to send pictures. Thanks!
