Gripped Films is looking for 45-70 cyclists and at least 20 spectators
who can cheer for a 2 hour film shoot in Georgetown starting at NOON - that way training
rides can come before shooting.
This is for a scene in our upcoming film on the Tour de France,
Chasing Legends. We want to replicate a small race with men on bikes
and a crowd of people cheering them on. There is no pay but you will
get a name credit in the film.
Helmet - don't worry about current styles, all riders must have one on
as the street where we will film is sketchy and hard to ride on. Though we might do one or two takes w/o helmets for the truly brave.
*Men on bikes, women, kids, pets welcome to cheer on side of street.
*Cyclists must be available from 12 noon-2pm
*Cyclists must wear their own non-logo clothing if possible such as vintage and
wool jerseys and shorts, older style shoes if possible and plain socks
*Bikes leave the carbon at home, only steel, Ti, alu (cross bikes
welcome just use slicks or super low profile knobbies) - prefer
vintage or old (no flash) the but still need to withstand
a pounding (think Roubaix, this is the cobblestone street with trolly
rails). Sorry no cash or reimbursement if a bike
or wheel breaks. NO CARBON RIMS. Also, old commuters (not single
speed or fixies) are acceptable as well. Flat pedals preferred, no
sneakers tho, please wear anything that might pass for vintage. Clip
ins are ok but flat pedals with shoes will get put up front.
* In addition, we will need people to act as a and ring
cowbells. We welcome families and kids, please bring cow bells but
nothing that would date the scene as current. Older style,
non-descript clothing preferred, no down puffy coats please.
For all those who are interested please contact Gwen at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please put "Chasing Legends Shoot" in subject line
