    Oh yus. Count me in (from England).

    Always fancied a trip to Romania. That's where all films are made now, isn't it?

      I wouldn't mind giving it a shot either. I keep missing the casting calls though.

        I'd be honored to be one of the cannon fodder extras who gets sliced in half by stormbringer.

          Well New Zealand seems to be fashionable for fantasy films (Lord of the Rings) but it would need to be somewhere with a desert for the weeping waste!
          Well, yeah I would so love to be an extra in an Elric film although I live in Scotland. Actually, how cool would it be if they did film it in scotland? Just so I could be an extra :D There is some nice scenery up here though.

            I'm in! I often thought of that too. Being an extra would be alot of fun.

              Nice dream... I'm Spanish too but I don't guess any scene will be filmed in Spain. I think it should be filmed in Norway.

                That would be awesome. Maybe mike could offer a contest for fans who wanna win a shot at being an extra?

                  Folks,

                  I must point out that being an extra usually involves standing around for hours at at time, getting bored out of your mind with no guarantee that you will ever appear on screen.

                  I know the thought of working in a major film (as Elric would be) sounds like a dream come true, but just bear in mind how much hard graft goes into these things.

                    I would still go for it. It is by far and away my favorite series. I don't expect to get a 'choice' spot, it would just be cool to be involved with the film, even I am never seen on screen or recognizable. As for being bored, I'm sure that the fans here might know a few choice books to bring along to read during down times. If Star Wars fans are willing to camp out months in advance to SEE a film, isn't it worth hanging around for months to BE in the film?

                      I'd love to be in the Elric movie...I'd probably be Doctor Jest's victim number 3 or something, knowing my luck.

                        I'd love to give it a go. Then I could say to my children, "I was there."
                        "Where dad?"
                        "Somewhere."

                          Does anyone know of any movies where fans were used as extras? I don't recall ever hearing about such a thing, and my guess is that it would be impractical. The way to get involved in the making of cool films is probably just starting a career in film-making. If you get good enough, you could even make your own.

                            If Mike discloses where the movie is to be made and I could get there, I'd try to be an extra.

                            BTW, has anyone seen that documentary "Overnight", where the guy sells his script and gets paid to make it and becomes a total prick, gets blacklisted, and ruins the movie?
