ABOUT THE FILM:

In his follow-up to the four-time Academy Award®-nominated blockbuster “The Help,” Tate Taylor

directs 42’s Chadwick Boseman as James Brown in GET ON UP.

Based on the incredible life story of the Godfather of Soul, the film will give a fearless look inside the music, moves and moods of Brown, taking audiences on the journey from his impoverished childhood to his evolution into one of the most influential figures of the 20th century.


Filming will start on Nov 4th in the Natchez, MS area and continue thru the end of December there. After a 2 week Christmas/New Years hiatus, the film will continue fiming in the Jackson, MS area until the end of January.

We work a Monday thru Friday work week, with an occasional Saturday on the schedule for a few specific scenes. The standard pay for extra work is $64 for 8 hrs with overtime after that. A normal film day is 12 hrs.

>Hair requirements: This is a period film that spans 1940 thru 1990. Men should start letting their hair grow for us to shape as needed. Women, please sign up or submit photos with your natural hair length and color visible. If women have extremely short hair, please also let it grow a bit. The majority of this movie takes place before 1975, so the hair will need to be styled to look period correct (from the 1940s thru the early 1970’s!!)

A normal film day is a 12 hr day or more.  This is a fun opportunity to come and hopefully work on the movie for a day or two as an extra, without a full-time commitment,  if you are chosen!!
