Extras Wanted

When he had first read the newspaper advert, he’d been all for it. Sure, it was only a role for drive-on extras, but you never know where these things might lead. For all he knew he could have ended up as the next Optimus Prime – complete with shiny new paint job and Megan Fox draped over his full leather interior.

Geoffrey Prime, he thought, had a good ring to it.

Yet here Geoff sat for the 13th day in a row; oversized props glued to his once pristine chassis and a clapped-out rust-bucket with verbal diarrhoea for a parking buddy.

  1. Cool, Mister B. My dad used to collect old cars and would often get calls from movie productions asking for one to be placed in the shots. He always turned them down because he was afraid they’d get damaged. I solved that problem on my own … toy cars and forced perspective. Works like a charm. 😉
