A NEWLY formed extras agency will take to the streets of Kirkby Lonsdale on April 17 for a film shoot and street performance.

Cumbria Casting Agency, based in Main Street, wants to put Cumbria on the map by recruiting film and TV extras from the local area who could go on to feature in adverts, films and documentaries.

Cumbria is already a prime location for blockbuster films, which have included Miss Potter, 28 Days Later, The Dam Busters and Withnail and I.

Philip Svejnoha, from Cumbria Casting Agency, said: “As part of our scheme, we are creating a DVD, filmed by film producer Simon Richardson, which requires the participation of dance groups and a crowd scene to attend the one day shoot.
