  2. You're in the right place, given the criteria you've set.

    I wouldn't hold your breath on the Military Experience bit though.

    A few points.

    You place people AND students. Are students not people?

    You are looking for males with military experience yet you include CADETS and hells bells RAF?

    I can be an old soldier (60) the one that the hero shows the pic of his wife / girlfriend / mistress to - just before he cops it.

    Good luck.
  6. No, WW3 was only prevented due to having SLR's during the cold war, hence to keep it realistic for the film there will be no SLRs
  7. What if one has tits, Male or female?

    Er....not to piss in your chips gents....but Universal Extras have been around for at least ten years- and recently gave my son 240 quid for pretending to be a French convict on the set of 'Les Miserables' in Portsmouth dockyard.

    So - if you are a retiired Cold War Warrior with more money than you can shake a stick at - feel free to sneer, take the piss and generally deride the whole ish.

    On the other hand, if you are

    > South Wales based

    > Age 18-50

    > with previous mil experience (ANY including RAF regiment)

    > Do not answer to the name of 'Croesus'

    then give them a shout......expect lots of mil style 'hurry up and wait', reasonable scran on set and an hourly rate that works out more than Minimum Pay i.e it beats Tesco/McDonalds/MoD E2

    Over to you - or not :)
