Casting Director Carlyn Davis will be holding two open calls Friday for extras to work on the Summit Entertainment/Touchstone Pictures feature film project, which starts shooting locally Sept. 19. The movie, currently without an official title, is being referred to as the Untitled Music High Project, and centers around the life of the fictional Maryland School of the Arts.

Davis is looking for thousands of background performers who can portray high school students, although all applicants must be 18 years of age or older. Davis is hoping the calls will attract a diverse range of character types, especially those who might attend an art school in the disciplines of music, dance, painting, theatre and film. She is also looking for a large number of "street types," as she describes them.

Both open calls will take place Sept. 16, from 2:30-6:30 pm. The main venue will be the Morgan State University Recital Hall, 2201 Argonne Drive in Baltimore. Parking is available in the rear of the recital hall in the Y parking lot. An additional call will take place at the same time at Bill Bateman's Restaurant, 7800 York Road across from Towson University.

All applicants must bring a current snapshot of themselves or they can have a Polaroid taken at the venue for a fee of $2.

Once at the open call, applicants simply need to fill out the casting form, staple their snapshots to the form and drop them off. Anyone hoping to be in the film who cannot make the open calls but would still like to be considered, can mail the form located on the company's website, www.carlyndaviscasting.com , along with a photo, to their office at 207 Park Ave., Suite B6 - Falls Church, VA 22046.
