According to Maebashi Film Commission, the film needs a large number of men and women, ages 5-60, who can dress up as red blood cells, white blood cells, and other human cell characters in the film. Filming will take place from early April to late June in various locations in Japan, including the Kanto region (Tokyo, Kanagawa, Gunma, Chiba, Ibaraki, etc.), Chubu region (Shizuoka, Yamanashi), and Kansai region (Hyogo, Wakayama).
The first shoot will take place on April 13 in Maebashi City, Gunma Prefecture. 40 men and women in their teens to 20s and 10 women in their 20s to 40s are being recruited. Then, the second shoot will follow on April 15 and 16 in the same city with 560 men and women aged 15-60 years old and 20 girls aged 5-10 years old (95-120 cm tall).
Since they are volunteer extras, participants will receive an original souvenir of the film, which is not for sale. No accommodation or transportation expenses will be provided (free parking is available for those filming in Maebashi City). If you want to be on film in a human cell role, this is a great opportunity! To participate, please fill out these forms: for April 13, for April 15 and 16.
