    I’m curious…. why does it matter if we live in Chicago? I live in Pittsburgh and am more than willing to drive or fly in.

      Mainly because this is for extras work which is usually short notice. Notice too short to fly or drive from another location. It is quite common for casting directors to call people the night before for a 6AM call time the next morning or even call at 7AM for a call time at noon that day. Often times, especially in outdoor shoots, what gets shot tomorrow depends on how far they got today and no one knows how far they will get today until they do it. For that reason, and others, extras are always cast locally as they need people who can get to the set within a few hours if need be. Also, productions depend on extras actually being there. The farther someone has to travel, the more chance there is that they will not be able to get there on time. It is not reasonable to expect someone living hours away to just drop everything, hop in their car and race to set hoping they don’t hit a traffic jam along the way, or, airport delays, bad weather, etc. if flying in. Being late is not an option, Crews are waiting, equipment is rented, streets may be closed for specific times. Productions simply cannot rely on people coming from too far away to be on set, as needed, on short notice. There is also the issue of this being a minimum wage gig. Why would anyone be expected to pay $100 in gas or a few hundred in airfare just to make $70 bucks for the day and maybe not even have a role that will actually be seen in the final movie (large crowd scenes, cars driving by, pedestrians on the street, etc.)

      For the main reason, if they need you immediately, you, would never make it on time, so you won’t get the job. Most casting calls are state specific. They have them listed in your state, also.

    I am 22 years old. My best character types are distant, cold calculated characters and passionate loving characters. I can play the extremely deranged criminals and I can mimic Psychological disorders well enough to get a diagnosis [though I wouldn’t want one]. I spent 11 years in juvenile detention for 8 different commitments [kicking cops and violating probation in order to escape abusive family. I loved juvi it was the best home I had and I fought to stay there.]
