Extras still needed for Tyler Perry film

Tyler Perry’s new film “A Jazzman’s Blues” is still in need of extras as they prepare to film in Liberty County.

Casting Director Bill Marinella, needs extras as soon as next week for Tyler Perry’s new film. And more extras will be needed as filming begins for Tyler Perry’s new Netflix Series about vampires is set to start filming in the middle of May in Savannah.


“We are looking for all ages for both productions,” Marinella said. “It’s a great way to earn some extra money and get behind the scenes of how movies and major productions are made.”

Filming for the productions will take place in Midway, Hinesville, Pooler, Ludowici and Savannah.

Extras for the Tyler Perry production will earn $200 per day. The Netflix series will pay at least $154 per day for an extra.

“One of the keys to be an extra is to be flexible with your schedule and we know it can be tough to take a day off from work,” he said. “But at $200 a day, that may get a few more people to make it worth their while to take a few days off. Plus, you get to be in a movie, which is a lot of fun.”

As a casting director, Marinella’s job is to find what are commonly known as extras that are seen in the background of most movies.

“I’m hired by a production company to find people who want an opportunity to be in the movies,” he said.
