Latest from the Producer:
1. Thank you for the followup. We definitely need background extras for both night, Friday and Saturday so if your crew of about a dozen people can make tonight we would love to have you. Call time is 9:30 pm at Bill Batemans Bistro in the glass room to the right. (a PA or I will be there). 566 Governor Ritchie Hwy severna park md. That is the holding and we will be shooting at Kyoto Japanese Steakhouse. We also need the same extras on saturday and if you all can make both, the more the merrier. Michael Garvey Producer[masked]

2. I am very happy that you all can make the shoot on Saturday. The wardrobe is casual attire for a Japanese Steakhouse (Shorts, casual pants, etc), preferably yellow, green or blue or combination is fine too. Basically we will be shooting a scene at a table and you all will be restaurant goers at different states, some arriving some in the middle of dinner, some leaving, etc. We will explain more on set, thanks. Please report to: Bill Batemans Bistro at 7:00pm , . There is a room to the right of the entrance which will be extras holding. Looking forward to meeting everyone.

TWO separate Meetup events have been created so people can help me give the Producer an idea of how many from our Club may be attending each shoot. Please RSVP to each one that you plan to attend.

From SP Patch:
Severna Park filmmaker Don Hutcheson, of Liftoph Productions, is shooting a scene for his upcoming movie For Love of a Fish at Kyoto Japanese Steakhouse on July 19 and 20, and is looking for extras to fill the restaurant.

For Love of a Fish is a short film aimed to bring awareness to the issue of soldier suicide, Hutcheson said.

The goal of the film is to entertain and inform the general public about Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, military and veteran suicide and the real-life trauma many family members face when their loved ones go off to war.

The scene that will be shot at Kyoto Japanese Steakhouse, features a dramatic reunion of friends.

When the veteran and his wife meet with friends at Kyoto, “conversation heats up with potentially deadly consequences scraping the couple’s raw nerves and exposing the fragile but durable nature of love,” Hutcheson said.

The scene requires that Kyoto’s be filled on July 19 and 20, The scene will be shot after the restaurant closes at 10 p.m., and will finish at 5 a.m.

“There is a bonus, food at the restaurant, and of course, your 15 minutes of fame,” Hutcheson said.

I just spoke with the listed contact. She told me that the date and time changed and just show up on Saturday at 6:30. I think the aim of the movie is noble. I imagine Shannon and some others may be interested...
