Photo and Story by Ellen Lockyer, KSKA – Anchorage

The search for 1,000 extras for the upcoming film, Everybody Loves Whales failed to draw crowds today in Anchorage. 50 to 100 people stood in line at a local mall for tryouts

Extra hopefuls ranged in age from high school to elderly. The process moved quickly.

Each applicant was photographed full face, and right and left profile mug shot style.

No word on when finalists will be notified.  The extra try outs continue tomorrow at the Dimond mall in Anchorage.
