Hello everyone. Welcome to the HOMELAND blog sight for the background actors. If you have not worked with us before, here's how it works....
Following you will find the the things that we would like you to bring as a background player. Please read the instructions and bring as many options of things that you have that are like the items that I describe. You may not have the exact things, but I am only trying to give a general idea.
First a GENERAL NOTE: Please note the location in which we are shooting tomorrow was the site of a fire. It has been deemed safe for shooting purposes. FOR ALL CREW MEMBERS AND ACTORS, HARD CLOSED TOE SHOES ARE REQUIRED AND LONG PANTS ARE RECOMMENDED.
The above note means that you should wear closed toe shoes and long pants to the set and change into anything else that we might choose for you.
We are shooting a scene that replicates the bombing of a boys school in Madrassa. This scene is set in an Iraqi village.
ADULT MEN should bring options of traditional clothing, if you have them, that would be appropriate for Iraq. In addition, you should also bring western clothing to include slacks, long and short sleeve button front shirts, polo and pullover long and short sleeve shirts. For the scene we might prefer that you wear sandals, and you should bring them, but remember you will need to wear closed toe shoes to the set.

SCHOOL CHILDREN should have with them several options of school/casual clothing to include jeans, khakis, cargo pants, tee shirts without logos or artwork on them, long and short sleeve button front shirts, light weight jackets like hoodies or sports jackets like soccer style jackets. You should have sandals to wear in the scene, but it is necessary that you have a pair of closed toe sneakers/boot to wear to set before putting your sandals on.
We look forward to meeting you and thank you in advance for coming and bring all the things that you have from the lists above. See you on the set!!
