Go Bollywood for local short

Mongoose Productions, a collective of young playwrights and filmmakers led by Gabrielle Reisman and Sam Ambler, is spending the summer months “working on several Bollywood-style short films being shot in and around Champaign-Urbana,” per Reisman.

They are currently seeking dancers and extras for a dance number to be shot at the south end of the Main Quad at the University of Illinois (presumably in front of Foellinger Auditorium) on Sunday, June 11, with a call time of 5 p.m.

“Bring your friends and family, we’re looking for all ages,” says Reisman in her announcement. “Dress [is] casual and comfortable – women in skirts, preferably ones that move well or flow; men, please bring a button-down shirt and an under- or t-shirt. The dances will be taught that afternoon and will be simple enough that anyone can do them.”

Resiman can be contacted with any questions about the shoot at (217) 419-0547 or gabor07@hotmail.com. Participants will receive dinner and an eventual copy of the final product.
