Hello to everyone.  We're glad that you'll be joining us.  Following you will find instructions and descriptions of the things that you should bring as options for your roles as background players for the next couple of days.  A couple of things to remember...

-We will be shooting multiple screen days so we need plenty of options of the clothing listed below so that we can put together several looks for everyone.
-Some of the things that you wear on Wednesday, 6/5 will be repeated on Thursday, 6/6 so you will have to bring everything with you on both days.
-Everyone should come dressed in their first, best choice based on the descriptions below and bring your other options for us to look at and make the final decisions.  Please bring all your clothing in with you when you check in.  DO NOT LEAVE YOUR CLOTHES IN THE CAR!!!!!!!  We will choose all of your outfits at the beginning of the day and you will be responsible, with help from the AD Dept, of knowing what to wear and when.

We are playing Spring in our show right now.  This means that you should include options that include both long and short sleeves as well as layering pieces light light weight sweaters and jackets, hoodies, etc.  These kinds of layers also represent vulnerability, and a way to "hide" in your clothing.  This is a rehab/trauma center and the reason that your character is here is because of some momentous event in your life.  Nobody is crazy, just a little broken.

Should wear and bring options of office appropriate long and short sleeve blouses, dress slacks and skirts, dresses, cardigan sweaters.  Shoes that work with the options that you bring and simple jewelry.

Everyone should wear and bring several options of the following kinds of things:
-long and short sleeve causal button front shirts and blouses
-long and short sleeve tees and other pullover shirts and tops.  NO LOGOS OR BRAND ARTWORK.  In other words, things that say Hollister, Abercrombie & Fitch, Gap, etc will NOT work.
-decent jeans in all fades.  If you are bringing a pair that has tears make sure to include some that do not!
-khaki type pants, cargo style pants
-casual shoes that work with your clothing options.  NO OBVIOUS LOGOS, small logos are fine on shoes.
-light weight jackets/windbreakers, cardigan sweaters, hoodies and other layering pieces.
-bring any interesting accessories that you may have; bandannas, wallets, leather pieces, etc
-You should use your own personal style as your guidelines.  If you're preppy don't try to come up with things from Hot Topic and vice versa.  Just bring lots of stuff and we will sort it all out.

ON CAMERA REPORTERS / PRINT REPORTERS should bring an assortment of nice casual to business dress. This should include slacks, skirts, long sleeve button front shirts/blouses, cardigans and pullover sweaters, light weight jackets. You should also bring sport coats/blazers, ties and other accessories. Long sleeve dress and casual shirts and blouses, in lighter colors, to go with the blazers.   Men's ties should not be too bright of too busy and women's jewelry should be simple and understated.

CAMERAMEN / SOUND MEN / STILL PHOTOGRAPHERS should bring clothing choices that will give us a layered look. This should include khakis, cargo pants, nice non-ripped jeans, long sleeve button front and pullover shirts/blouses, sweaters, hoodies and lightweight jackets.  Any other interesting accessories please bring and we can have a look.  Stay with mostly neutrals...tan, browns, grey, navy, dark green, burgundy, etc.

SECURITY will be given a polo shirt by the costume department.  You should bring with you a white short sleeve plain undershirt, black dress slacks, black belt, black shoes and black socks.

VISITORS should wear and bring options the following:

Button front casual long sleeve shirts and blouses
Khaki pants, slacks, skirts
Pullover sweaters, sweater vests,
