Richard Linklater's 12-year project

Richard Linklater has been quietly shooting his 12-year project and time has certainly passed. It's in year seven now and shooting in Austin this November. The title? Boyhood.

Here are some details via an extras casting call:

I just want to let everyone know that we are in ned of extras on the Richard Linklater's 12 year project called Boyhood. We are now on the 7th year and we need volunteer extras to help us. I know that we all want to get paid especially in this economy but let me repeat that this is Richard Linklater's project. He is a very big deal in the Austin film community and this is a great way to show your support. Plus to be on his set is a learning and growing experience for all.

This is what we need:
Middle School kids
College kids
Few adults

We need a variety of ethnicities in all categories. We will be shooting the majority of the extras on Sunday 11/8 and would only be asking for a couple of hours of your time. It is not a full day event.

If you are interested please email Jessica at with a current photo, your name, phone number and your height, weight and age. Please make sure to put BOYHOOD in the subject line.

shameless to enlist people to work for free because it's Linklater. Cheap, exploitive and how Texas like of them. Zip political awareness. But of course.
