Hello Austin Group!

I just joined the NSHP and the Austin group.

I'm interested in meeting up and networking.  Is there a meeting scheduled in the near future?

I look forward to meeting all of you!

Good Evening Group! I pray all is well with you and would really like for this group to set it off. I will be speaking to Diane again and see what's going on. We are already in September and still no movement. Thanks for your suggestions and any input you may have.

Good Morning everyone! I had the pleasure of conversing with Diane last night and she definately has a great vision and future for this group and I would still encourage each one of you to attempt to do a small meet and greet amongst yourselves until everything comes together which sounds like should be around August/September.
Have a great week!

Hello Everyone,

Have a great and safe Memorial Weekend!

Here is an event of interest:
My name is Tina Kerr and I am the Extras Casting Director for two television series (NBC's "Friday Night Lights" and FOX's "The Good Guys") which are currently filming in the Austin and Dallas areas.

On both projects we would like to have a better representation of the HISPANIC/LATIN community, but do not have a lot of people in our talent pool who fit that demographic. We are looking for Hispanic/Latin Men, Women and Children - ALL Ages, NO experience necessary!

In addition to the general extra types (neighbors, football fans, high school students, restaurant customers, shoppers, etc) that we will be using, we are also in need of others with the following special skills - football players, basketball players, barbers, police officers, business men and women with professional attire, precision drivers, paramedic/EMT's, firefighters and many other skills.

Extras do get paid and rates vary by location/project. In Austin for "Friday Night Lights" the rate is $7.25 per hour with an 8 hour guarantee of $58.00 plus time and 1/2 after 8 hours. In Dallas for "The Good Guys" the rate is $8.00 per hour with an 8 hour guarantee of $64.00 plus time and 1/2 after 8 hours. Meals are generally always provided and it can be a fun, new experience to work in television & meet new people. Work days can average anywhere from 4-14 hours per day and filming is usually done during the week with weekends off.

I need all the help I can get in getting the word out to the Hispanic/Latin communities in both areas and hope you are able to help with this. Please help us out by letting all of your contacts know about this opportunity and/or reposting this notice on your networking sites.

Anyone who is interested in working with us should visit our website at www.onlocationcasting.net and complete a Talent Application. They will need to upload 1-2 photos of themselves and input some personal information. It is FREE to be in out talent database, so notifications to input credit card information or pay for 'active' upgrades can be disregarded. It is OPTIONAL to pay for the upgrades and we do not require any form of payment to work with us on our shows.

If you have further questions, please feel free to either call us at 512-707-7934 or email us at: onlocationcasting@yahoo.com.

We will also be booking other extras from different ethnic groups for both of these projects, so EVERYONE is welcome to sign up to work with us as an extra!!

Thank you in advance for your assistance.
