No Crusader extras needed in local film
YOUNG local filmmaking company Pfarus Films is about to start filming its first film, but on a restricted budget. The new chief executive officer of Pfarus Films, Jack Loomes, said he expected filming to be wrapped up by the end of October on the Crusader-themed picture. But as filming begins Mr Loomes said he wanted to apologise to all those hopefuls who auditioned for parts as extras in the film earlier this year. He said he had hoped to have a 'small but reasonable' budget, but now found that he had to work to a much smaller budget than anticipated. Mr loomes said this had meant the script had to be rewritten; the crew and cast were limited to 'core staff' and he could hire virtually none of the extras he had hoped they would be able to afford. He said he wanted to apologise to all those extras who would not get work on this first film and hoped he would be able to use them in future.
