Why did you decide to submit to FirstGlance?
Friends had attended FirstGlance in the past and highly recommended the festival.
Will someone from your team be attending FirstGlance?
I (Cary Anderson) will be at the festival. I hope members of the cast and crew will be there.
What is something you feel is important for our readers to know about your film?
It’s a light-hearted comedy. There are more adventures for these characters that I’d like to tell.
What should viewers expect from your film?
Viewers will learn about the cutthroat world of film extras.
Do you have any (funny, interesting, scary etc.) production stories our readers might enjoy?
In the film, Bruce Davison plays a character that teaches people how to be film extras. Believe it not, I learned a couple years ago that there is a woman in DC that teaches people how to be film extras. When I heard that I started thinking and that is how Extra School was born.
What are you looking forward to most at FirstGlance?
I am looking forward to meeting a lot of rich people that need tax write-offs who will finance my other projects. Okay, I might be dreaming a little.
