Renowned Seattle indie filmmaker and artist, Carey Christie, returns again, with YOUR chance to be in an Obama commercial, as she co-produces the spot for MoveOn.Org's latest political campaign project.

Austin Wilson from More Dust Than Digital will be directing the commercial that is 30-seconds long and must show Barack Obama in a positive light. Austin says he is inspired by Barack's ideas and has been anxious to do something creative to endorse his campaign. Their idea is simple and awesome and involves A LOT of people -- people like you who are supporting Barack Obama and want to make a difference [we will not reveal his commercial idea, just to be safe in the face of copycatters, but Austin will be more than happy to share the idea with you, himself]!

The film idea needs a crowd, and "the crowd" is where you come in:

They have the location: Roosevelt High School's new amazing theater (Seattle). They have the date: Thursday, March 27, 2008. Now they just need YOU. They want as many people as possible, different ages, different ethnicities, male and female.

Two separate call times:
5 p.m. to 7 p.m. - small but diverse group for "pick-up" shots, like close ups, etc. (10 people)
7 p.m. to 9 p.m. - crowd (40 +)

Please forward this note along to anyone that you think might be interested in being a part of this project. If you plan on joining them to participate for either time slot or both, they ask for an email RSVP or a call to 206.351.0616, but I'm sure they would be happy with anyone who showed up, even if you can't RSVP, so please, for the love of Barack, don't let anything stop you from attending. Bring a friend, bring a date, bring your parents! Support indie art and support change!
