Swedish film production company Anagram is looking for extras for their Tom of Finland film project. Extras are wanted for recordings in February and March in Gothenburg, Sweden.
The film about Tom of Finland will portray artist Touko Laaksonen’s life. In post-war Finland homosexuality was classified as a psychiatric illness, weak and feminine. In this negative climate, Laaksonen (1920-1991) created his now world famous homoerotic art. The film has a budget of four and a half million euro and will be english-spoken. Dome Karukoski is directing the film produced by Helsinki Filmi which has secured the rights to use the artist’s works. Over half of the film’s recordings will take place in Sweden.
An extra’s main task is to give life to the background on stage or in a movie. The role of an extra is determined by clothing sizes, availablity, previous experience and personal characteristics. A good extra thinks it is fun to film and can be patient as there sometimes is a long wait between various scenes. However, extras do not need experience in theater or film. – Anagram Väst AB
Those who are interested in becoming an extra are requested to send a description of themselves, clothing sizes, contact details and a recent photo to firstname.lastname@example.org.
