Lately there has been quite a need for Duluth area residents to appear on screen. Currently, there the motion picture 'Merry Kiss Cam' is filming in Duluth and producers have been using locals to appear as extras in the film, which stars actress Katie Lowes.

Then, another opportunity was announced through the Duluth MN Actors|Filmmakers|Crew|DPs|MUA|Screenwriters Facebook page. While this isn't as high profile a gig as the filming of a movie in Duluth, it pays better and requires less time.

The announcement for this opportunity was made on Friday, June 3:
