Back in January we reported that a filmmaker was working on a movie about a teenager obsessed with playing video games and that they would be filming at the awesome Funspot Family Entertainment Center in New Hampshire, USA. Today on the KLOV Forums they posted a casting call for the movie called “The Altar of the Unnamed” looking for a number of extras to come and participate in the film from March 25th-29th at Funspot. In addition to regular players they also are looking for some children for a birthday party scene. They will be filming on the 3rd floor.
If you love games and want a chance to be in a film about arcades then this is one way to go. That and it’s at Funspot – I’d be happy to show up, if I lived anywhere close by. For the full request as was posted on the KLOV Forums, hit the post break .
