Model Pool Searches for LOTR Extras
Matthew Bass

Model Pool is an organization that provides most of the casting of film extras for New Zealand's major productions, like Hercules and Xena. They will be submitting extras for possible inclusion in the upcoming films.

As most of you know, Lord of the Rings will begin filming later this year. These films will require massive amounts of talented extras (over 16,000) which Model Pool will be gathering and submitting to the producers. In particular, a large number of horses and riders will be needed.

If you're interested in serving as an extra in the Lord of the Rings trilogy we strongly suggest you visit Model Pool's web site [www.modelpool.co.nz] and and register for possible inclusion in this spectacular trilogy.
