KAMLOOPS - If you've ever wanted to be in a video game, this may be your chance: The makers of the Far Cry series are shooting a commercial in Merritt and the Lower Nicola.

Ubisoft is the company behind the game, and they are looking for about 50 people, ages 20 and up, to be extras and play the roles of church patrons and others. The release from the Thompson Nicola Film Commission says the roles will pay $15/hour plus overtime and travel costs.

They are looking for all ethnicities but people with 'character' faces are a bonus, according to the release.

Casting sessions are being held in Merritt on Wednesday, Sept. 20, at the Merritt Civic Centre, in Kamloops on Thursday, Sept. 21, at The Plaza Hotel, and at the Lower Nicola Indian Band's Shulus Community Hall on Friday, Sept. 22. The sessions will run from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. each night.

You are asked to wear street clothes to the audition where they will take photos and collect contact information. You must have your own transportation and be allowed to work in Canada.

They are also looking for vehicles they will pay $50/day for. You can either bring your vehicle to a casting session or email a photo to tnfc@tnrd.ca.
