CALL FOR EXTRAS
First thing first. We need you to be an extra on GRIMM! The shooting will be this Thursday, February 23rd, so you’ll have to be free. This goes for veteran family members too, so if your brother served in Iraq or your Grandpa in WWII, you count. Send your name and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get all the time and place to you. All the information I have right now is that we will be extras on a bus in an episode at the end of this season.
More good news! I completed the Studio A instruction block. We will be able to use the studio soon, but I need help before we can get the show on the air. Below I will list the positions needed to put on a show. Look through them and if you feel you can fill one of these positions email me at email@example.com. Not all the position need to be filled before we can put the show on because there are volunteers at MetroEast, but we want you… to help put the show on.
