NBC Pays 'Cash Money' for Faux-Prostitutes

Posted By on Mon, Aug 17, 2009 at 2:45 PM

Female actors, rejoice! Finally, an opportunity to play a victim! Trauma needs extras. Specifically, "young looking Chinese women 18 years old - 20s." Up to 10 women will be chosen to:

"portray women that have been forced into prostitution, found trapped in Chinatown

building. Women will have more of an innocent and unfortunate

portrayal, wearing tube tops, or tank tops, short shorts or mini

skirts, flip flops. etc., NOT scantily clad in lingerie!"

Don't worry! You won't look slutty, just "unfortunate." The posting promises that chosen parties will be compensated with "cash money," homes! (We suspect that the indelicate wording is the result of the call being re-posted to the Web site Model Mayhem, and not the work of whoever penned the original missive.)

For the two-day shoot, which "on average" lasts 12 hours a day,

non-union extras will be compensated $78.32 for eight hours (which

amounts to San Francisco minimum wage) plus overtime at time and a half.

The writer reminds interested parties that, "...we are looking for

young faces; pictures of you with light make-up or clean faces are

preferred over heavy make-up." Save the make-up heavy portraiture for

the episode in which Trauma portrays willing prostitutes, thank you!

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
