Hunger Games

‘The Hunger Games’ series has come to an end and Katniss Everdeen has managed to save this world against the evil Capital. However, all of this saving took numerous production assistants, many background extras, and millions of dollars to convert ‘The Hunger Games’ from a mere idea to a feature film franchise worth a billion dollars. For the final three parts, the filming of The Hunger Games took place in Atlanta, Georgia. However, before filming moved to this Peach State, it was filmed in Asheville, North Carolina.

About the Film

This 2012 film has been directed by Gary Ross and is based on a novel by Suzanne Collins. It stars Jennifer Lawrence and the story reveals a futuristic nation named Panem where girls and boys aged twelve to eighteen years have to be a part of the Hunger Games. In these games, these young people have to fight till death until only one survivor remains.

Hunger Games received mainly positive reviews from the critics and have received an 84% approval rating by Rotten Tomatoes. This was based on 275 reviews and scored an average rating of 7.2 on 10.

Extras Needed

Producers of the show required many extras for playing in the background of numerous scenes in the movie. However, working as an extra in the movie was an experience on its own as revealed by one of the background actors on Reddit. The background actor exposed all behind the scenes action, drama, as well as industry news while giving an interview on the Hunger Games.

Extras Reveal

One of the extras on the show revealed that the whole experience was hard and long and it took them 25 hours being on the set and getting featured for 0.5 of a second. The filming took place over a period of two days with total time of 25 hours. The extra also revealed to everyone how he managed to score this role in the film. He said that he had submitted his information to the extras casting director. The first movie was filmed close to him in Charlotte.

This seems like quite an interesting story and it was definitely great knowing about the experiences of an extra on the film. It is also shocking to know the long hours that even the extras have to put in to make sure that the overall movie is a success.

Stay tuned for Audition Details!
