MADERA COUNTY, Calif. (FOX26) — A movie production company is in Madera County and will be casting local extras.
The casting will take place Saturday, January 11th beginning at 7:00 p.m. at the Frontier Inn Tavern located at 32265 Front St. in Raymond.
The movie is a supernatural horror film called "Agares."
Praetorian Pictures is owned and operated by Johnny Royal and Angel Thompson out of Los Angeles, CA. Director and CEO, Johnny Royal, states, “Agares is part of a horror anthology that utilizes the local folklore of various small towns such as Raymond, to tell the stories of the darker side of the human condition, such as paranoia, anxiety, and depression, all of which are prevalent in the current stream of thought within all Americans.” Executive Producer and CFO, Angel Thompson, remarks, “As both of us have come from small Midwest towns, we felt that it was important to use the genre of horror and the settings of real towns with rich history like Raymond to remind people of what is really important in the here and nowfamily, love, and life.”
“Indeed, much of the credit for the inspiration of ‘Agares’ goes to Frontier Inn Tavern owner Bill, along with his fraternal organization the Clampers. Without all of them telling us about the rich history of Raymond, and the local folklore of Madera County, this story may have never been written,” concludes Johnny Royal.
Casting for extras is open to the public of all age groups.
