Yep, that ad for extras is no leg-pull.

May 30, 2000 at 8:44 pm by Tehanu  - 

Recently we reported an ad for extras that sounded like it could be an ad for LOTR extras, given the location (Canterbury) and the physical types required. Or, one of our more suspicious natures decided, it was an attempt to get people to sign on who didn’t have a hope of working for LOTR.
The agency, Modelpool Talent Promotions, are understandably annoyed with that inference and rang to say they supply 80% of the extras in LOTR and are also casting for 8 major international feature films being shot in NZ. So the ad was genuine! Go for it!!
