300 young women needed for video

Based on the large – 1,500 area residents – turnout at Saturday’s casting call for the independent film “Coldwater” at the Holbrooke Hotel, Shane Hayes hopes Nevada County women will be in his music video this Saturday.

Hayes, “Coldwater’s” location manager, is producer and director of a Willknots video to be shot Saturday in Carmichael.

The music video is separate from “Coldwater”; the video is produced by Essential Media Group in Sacramento, and “Coldwater” is produced by MicShaw Productions in Los Angeles.

Three hundred women ages 18 to 28 are needed as extras from 8:30 a.m. to noon. Those under 18 can be in the video if they are accompanied by a parent.

“The featured extras will be part of crowd shots,” Hayes said, “singing, dancing, interacting with the band, having fun. Dress like what you would wear to go to a club, nothing overly off-the wall.”

The Willknots is a Sacramento pop-punk band whose single “4 AM” is currently heard on radio station KWOD-FM (106.5). The “4 AM” video will debut on the KWOD Web site, said Hayes. He will also send the video to MTV2.

T-shirts, hats, posters, stickers, light refreshments and beverages will be given away. All extras will be invited to a video premiere party. They will not be paid.

Video sponsors include KWOD and Thrasher and Slap magazines.

The music video’s staff includes two Nevada County residents: Andrew Haley is the lead production assistant, and James Smith is a production assistant.
