Casting call seeks extras for multiple movies filming in Syracuse, including ‘The Binge 2’
A casting call is seeking extras for multiple movies filming in Syracuse, including “The Binge 2.”
AND Casting by Annie Delano LLC, announced an open casting call Wednesday for people over 18 years of age, of all ethnicities, who would like to experience being a background extra on the set of a feature film. AND Casting, which has supplied extras for American High films like “The Binge,” “Big Time Adolescence” and “The Ultimate Playlist of Noise,” says it needs to fill roles for multiple upcoming productions in Central New York.
“Being a background extra allows everyday people to experience the thrill of feature film making firsthand,” said Annie Delano, owner of AND Casting. “You don’t have to be a professional actor, you’re paid for the day, and you just may get to see yourself on the big screen. It’s a fun experience and an exclusive look behind the scenes.”
People interested in being an extra can apply at https://andcasting.portal.wegotpop.com/apply. Proof of vaccination will be required to work on set.
Any parent who would like to sign up their minor child can visit andcasting.com and click “Be An Extra” on the top bar to find the application for children under 18.
“The Binge,” released last year, was the biggest movie ever shot in Syracuse. More than 2,000 extras and 50-60 local crew members worked on it. Scenes were shot at Syracuse Studios (formerly the A.V. Zogg Middle School in Liverpool), Onondaga Lake Parkway, Hanover Square, Carnegie Library, Clinton Square, Village Burger in Liverpool, a bridge in Van Buren, and the Greater Syracuse Soundstage (formerly known as the nano film hub in DeWitt).
A Christmas-themed sequel is currently in the works: “The Binge 2: It’s a Wonderful Binge.” Jordan VanDina, who wrote the first film, will make his directorial debut for Liverpool, N.Y.-based American High and Hulu.
“Working with the tight-knit American High film family in Syracuse, NY has been an honor and a privilege. And like all great filmmakers say ‘Always work with children, animals and locations that involve snow and sub-zero temperatures.’ This film has all of those!” VanDina said.
“The Binge 2″ is expected to begin filming soon. The synopsis for the film is:
“In the near future all drinking and drugs are banned except for one glorious day known as The Binge… This year that day happens to miraculously land on Christmas. Watch a holiday adventure like you’ve never seen before that includes magical storybooks, catchy songs, beautiful stop motion animation and a Christmas saga that won’t be soon forgotten… and drugs! Lots of them! Merry Bingemas!”
It will mark the first franchise for American High, which recently wrapped its 12th film in the Syracuse area in four years.
American High founder Jeremy Garelick, who directed the first “The Binge” movie, will produce the sequel along with Will Phelps, Ryan Bennett and Molle DeBartolo. Andrew Reyes will executive produce the project.
A cast has not been announced for “The Binge 2.” Vince Vaughn, Skyler Gisondo, Dexter Darden, and Eduardo Franco starred in the first film.
