KAMLOOPS — A big opportunity for those wanting to appear on the big screen.

An independent filmmaker, based out of Vancouver, is seeking volunteer extras for a film scene he plans to shoot early this coming Sunday morning west of Kamloops.

It will be a scene in Javier Badillo's full length motion picture "Roads of Ithriyah," and tells the story of a Syrian soldier who suffers a concussion and forgets his past.

He says the scene will be shot in Walhachin, at Deadman Junction Ranch.

"People should show up just before daybreak, 6:00 a.m. We'll be arriving in our van. We're a small crew of nine. All of the extras will be shown coming up the side of the mountain walking towards the protagonist."

Badillo estimates post production work will be completed in about a year after which he hopes to enter it in various film festivals across Canada.

Those wanting to participate Sunday are required to wear camouflage clothing and gear.

Interested parties are asked to email a selfie in costume to Executive Producer Kelly White at [email protected].
