“Still I Rise” Casting Extras and Kids


Pennsylvania extras casting

FourthRiverCasting is accepting submissions for background artists for the feature film, STILL I RISE. To be considered, please follow the guidelines below.

Applications that do not follow the directions detailed will be deleted.

The story of STILL I RISE- Two strong women, both mothers, one a teacher, channel frustration into action, joining forces to transform an inner city school. Facing the obstacles of a broken bureaucracy, they persevere with a singular goal — to make a difference in the educations and lives of their children. Inspired by events that are creating headlines daily, this empowering story explores what may be the most pressing civil rights issue of our time: the crisis of public education in America.

STILL I RISE will be shooting in the Pittsburgh area from mid-May through early July. Submissions for background artists of all ages are being accepted.

There is a special need for children who appear eight years old for this project. Some children will be needed for only one day of shooting, but we are also looking for many who can commit to a few days to appear in classroom scenes. If you are the parent of a child who is or appears to be in this age range, please submit information as soon as possible. All children will be interviewed prior to casting.

Please send an email to fourthrivercasting@yahoo.com with the following information:








DESCRIPTION OF PREVIOUS EXTRA EXPERIENCE (no experience is necessary, but we’d like to know if you’ve done background work before.)

For children’s submissions, please also include-




For all applications, please include an attachment of a photograph. It doesn’t need to be professionally done, but needs to show a good likeness and include face and body. Please do not ask us to visit another site. If you have a resume, you may attach it as well.

Submissions for adults must have STILL I RISE as the subject of the e-mail; submissions for children must have STILL I RISE-CHILDREN.

You will be contacted by telephone or e-mail when scheduling begins. Again, only applications that follow the instructions will be accepted. NO PHONE CALLS ARE BEING ACCEPTED AT THIS TIME.

Thank you for your interest, and looking forward to working with you!
