Hope everyone is having a good weekend. Glad that you'll all be joining us on Monday. It will be a busy day, but I'm sure you are up to the challenge.
We are shooting several scenes with several different looks and many of you will be working in all of them, so please read all the following info carefully and do your best to bring all that you can for all the different looks.
PUB is an upwardly mobile urban professional place....a yuppie bar! Everyone should bring options that are work appropriate. This is the watering hole for the lawyers, wall street types and CEO's, both men and women alike. Some of the patrons are from the CIA.
PUB PATRONS & POOL PLAYERS & OLDER MEN Everyone should bring things that are upscale and work appropriate. Suits and sport coat and blazers, skirts and slacks. Light weight sweaters, shirts and ties, work blouses, ect. The colors should be somewhat subdued. We are in early spring so keep the season in mind when packing.
CIA PATRON same as above, but with a mix of a few more casual things as well. If you have played with us before as a CIA member, you will know the mix that I am talking about. Sport coats, light weight jackets, pullovers, as well as a suit and ties and more upscale items.
BARTENDERS please bring black pants and a black tee shirt and black long sleeve, button front shirt. Also please bring a long sleeve white button front shirt.
Following are the categories that will be playing on the college campus:
PROFESSOR please bring slacks, khakis, skirts, long sleeve button front shirts/blouses, sport coats/blazers, suits and ties, light weight sweaters. I think we all know what the "professor look" is, and there's a reason for it. Bring all that stuff :-) Bring satchels and bookbags that a teacher would carry if you have it.
STUDENTS please bring options of jeans and khakis, skirts, etc. It is still early spring. Hoodies, sweatshirts, pullovers, button downs, sneakers, dock shoes. Ball caps with no logos. Many of you are listed as STUDENT WITH BIKE, etc. Please bring the props that you are listed with, but everyone should bring their ipods, skateboards, backpacks, cell phones, etc. Please no shorts, we haven't gotten there yet in our story.
LAWN MAINTENANCE please bring a pair of work boots or dark sneakers and a pair of khaki pants. We will provide you with a uniform shirt.
The men playing soldiers will be getting uniforms from the costume dept. All of these men should bring a black pair of socks to wear with your boots. Following find the other categories:
BOYS & GIRLS should bring options of play clothes/school clothes. This is a Flashback and takes place in 2001. The best way to communicate a time difference with children is to dress them like children, not miniature versions of adults. So please bring options for the children that seem like children's clothing. We are playing this as early spring, so not shorts. Girls may have dresses and pants and tops, boys in jeans and tees and button front shirts. Try to keep the colors from being too bright or summery. Maybe bring light weight jackets for them as well. We are putting a jean jacket on our leading lady.
WIVES should bring early spring choices. Jeans, slacks, dresses, tops and tees. Nothing too brightly colored as it is a Flashback. Please bring some light weight jackets. Simple jewelry and shoes. Also bring a handbag/purse to work with your clothes.
VETERANS I understand that there may be some actual Veterans joining us. Please bring your dress military uniform, Class A or the equivalent, to wear on the day, with our thanks! We will be shooting out of doors, so your covers will be required.
I know it's a lot to absorb and remember. Thank you in advance for all your hard work and for bringing all the good stuff that we know you will.
See you on the set!
