Pasadena Fire Department Puts Out Casting Call for Training Film Extras

[Updated] Here’s a unique chance for you to be in a movie that’s going to be shot in Pasadena. Aside from becoming one of the extras, you also get to help teach people about the importance of volunteering as a community safety or emergency response specialist.

The Pasadena Fire Department has put out a casting call for volunteers who will be helping make a movie – a training video actually – that will later be distributed to all the cities in Los Angeles County.

Filming will be next Tuesday, August 13, from 1 p.m. to around 4:30 p.m. at a business park at 2900 Bradley Street in Pasadena.

What the fire department requires next Tuesday are volunteers, of all ages, who can show up between 12:30 and 1 p.m. so filming could begin at about 1:30 p.m.

“We need volunteers who can show up in everyday clothing – that means whatever clothing you put on that morning,” Carolyn Seitz, CERT Coordinator for the Pasadena Fire Department, said in an email. “The volunteers will become part of crowds or groups of people engaging in normal activities, walking, chatting with friends and family, shopping, etc. We’d like people of all ages, bring your family, your neighbors, your friends. It should be a fun experience, and your participation will help the training video have a more realistic look and feel.”

Seitz said ample parking will be available on-site, in the parking lot where the filming will take place, and on the street. The filming site is on a cul-de-sac off of New York Drive, between Sierra Madre Villa and Altadena Drive. Your vehicles will also add realism to the video, Seitz added.

Filming should be over before 4:30 p.m., she said.
