Casting 'Real People' for Bass Pro Shops

Bass Pro Shops has issued this casting call:

Do you love the outdoors? Do you fish, hunt, camp and just love to be "out there?”

Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid is looking for people just like you to take part in filming scenes in our new store.  Acting experience not necessary.

We want people who are familiar with the outdoors and the sports that Bass Pro serves to be on-camera shoppers and customers of this fabulous new store.

We are seeking a diverse, intergenerational group of outdoor enthusiasts to partake in filming scenes inside The Pyramid.

The project is being assisted by the Memphis & Shelby County Film and Television Commission.

Background and Featured Extras needed during filming in mid-May. Half days (6-hour block) and full days (12-hour block). The schedule is still to be determined.

Families with children and adults of ALL AGES will be selected. Please forward CURRENT photograph, availability, and contact information including mobile phone and e-mail to: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

If selected, you will be contacted by email for more detailed information about what to wear, etc. Extras will arrive “camera ready” as there will not be a make up artist or wardrobe assistant for enhancements.

ALL EXTRAS WILL BE PAID at the time of filming. Extras will be required to sign talent release and all under 18 must have a legal guardian to sign for them.

Thank you for your interest and availability.

DO NOT contact the Bass Pro store directly as ALL production planning is being handled through a Memphis production company. Store personnel will not be able to answer any questions about this filming event.
