Did you hear that they’re making a sequel to Girls Will be Girls, the awesome all-drag women’s film? Only took about a decade, but still, better late than never.
And now’s your big chance to break into showbiz! They’re crowdsourcing some of the footage, and they need fans to send in a few clips. Yes, you too can have an IMDb credit alongside drag legend Coco Peru, Arrested Development‘s Richard Day, and celebrated gaffer Fernando Christopher.
Check out the requirements after the jump, but heed the producers’ warning: “Please do not try to be funny.”
Here’s all you need to do to be a part of Girls Will be Girls 2012. Get to work, and then send it on in!
“GIRLS WILL BE GIRLS 2012” REMOTE CAMEO GUIDLINES
There are two sequences in the film where we will use these:
1. People around the world watching an internet video; 2. People around the world watching TV.
We encourage you to shoot yourself for both to increase the chances of being prominently featured.
Our film was shot at 1080p resolution and 24 frames per second; your footage should be too. Specifically, we shot our footage on a Canon 7d DSLR camera with a 35mm lens. Your footage will match ours best if you can shoot it with a similar camera and lens. Most recent DSLR’s shoot video, so you or someone you know may well have one. Here’s a list of models:
If you use a camera that records onto tape you will need to convert it to a video file; we are not set up to do that here.
Internet Video Sequence
Content: You are watching a viral internet video. At first you are entertained, but then it starts to get
gross until finally it is so disgusting it makes you vomit.
You can be watching the video on any device that plays them — a desktop or laptop computer, or a smart phone or tablet.
Do not try to pull off a vomit effect — just duck out of frame or pretend to vomit in a handy nearby receptacle.
You can be indoors or out and it can be day or night.
If you think you can make it look like you are in another country that would be great. But if it looks cheesy we won’t be able to use it, so don’t get over-ambitious.
Please do not try to be funny or add any extraneous comedy to your footage. Shots required: WIDE SHOT (head-to-toe) OF YOU
…watching the video. This shot should include the back or side of the computer or device you are watching.
CLOSE SHOT (mid-chest and higher) OF YOU
…watching the video. This shot can but does not need to include the computer or device. Any movement in this shot should match the movement in the wide shot.
CLOSE SHOT OF COMPUTER SCREEN OR DEVICE
From your point of view. Showing the borders of the monitor, or your hand holding the device. It should be open to a video-playing application. It doesn’t matter what video is playing — we will lay our video over it.
You are watching a television broadcast, either alone or with other people. The show you are watching first alarms you, then makes you think, then makes you sad, then makes you happy.
Again, if you think you can make it look like you are in another country that would be great. But if it looks cheesy we won’t be able to use it, so don’t get over-ambitious.
Also again, please do not try to be funny or add any extraneous comedy to your footage.
It should be night if you are depicting yourself as being in the United States, or daytime if you are depicting yourself as being in another country.
Shots required: WIDE SHOT (head-to-toe) OF YOU (and if desired others)
…watching TV. This shot can but does not need to include the back or side of the TV you are watching.
CLOSE SHOT (mid-chest and higher) OF YOU (just you) …watching TV. This shot should not include the television you are watching. CLOSE SHOT OF TELEVISION From your point of view. Showing the borders of the TV and a bit of the room.
Though we will make every effort, we cannot guarantee your footage will be included in the final cut of “Girls Will Be Girls 2012.”
If your footage is poorly executed on a technical level (bad lighting, out of focus, over or under exposed…) we will not be able to consider using it. Likewise we will not be able to consider it if it is creatively problematic (attempts at extraneous humor, unconvincing attempt to portray another country…)
If your footage is not usable we will try to work with you to help you create shots we can use.
Thank you for supporting and being a part of “Girls Will Be Girls 2012”

HEADLINE: “Now’s Your Change…” ??? Proofread much? Dumb ass.
Doug beats her every night… har, har, hee-larious (sic). Nothing pfunnier than spousal abuse. I know, I know, all drag queens are a load of laughs.
I love their mix of dark gross-out humour and camp. Can’t wait for the sequel!!! Astro-phys-ic-ist!!
