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.

Lights. Camera. Ugh!

It was said, that the demon of studio 18 only showed himself when the conditions were just right.

A perfect summer storm.
On a Tuesday.
Oh and there had to be at least two actresses named Mary.

The demon didn’t care for their silly conditions.
He was just particularly lazy.

At demon school, Dave would often replay movies in his head whilst the teacher took class. He never handed homework in correct or on time, instead choosing to while away his days watching TV.

It was no wonder, then, that his career advisor had given him a studio to terrorise.
