Movie needs extras, fee raised
Rockland — The feature movie “Catatonk Blues,” which has begun filming and will continue in October in Rockland, Rockport and Augusta, is looking for a crowd to be in a scene to be filmed Tuesday, Oct. 1, in the auditorium of the former Rockland school/arts center of Lincoln Street.
Interested parties should show up at the Lincoln Street Cultural Center (former Lincoln Street Center for Arts and Education), 24 Lincoln St., in advance of the filming, which is scheduled to run from 2 to 7 p.m. in the auditorium. Extras will be asked to register in the holding area when they arrive; compensation will be $50. For more information, write to firstname.lastname@example.org; include cell phone contact.
The script by former New York Congressman and part-time Monhegan resident Robert Mrazek tells the story of Charlie Winship, a burned-out congressman from Maine. As a young Marine, Winship survived the battle at Khe San in Vietnam. His anger over the war has led to nearly two decades in the political trenches of Washington and the loss of his marriage.
In “Catatonk Blues,” Winship is accused of defaming one of the nation’s most revered patriotic symbols while cut off from communications on an island fighting to save its way of life from international fishing interests. Actor Treat William has been cast to play Winship. Mrazek is co-directing with actor and director Jared Martin.
