Become a silent movie star

As part of Waltham Forest Tours, artists Janek Turkowski and Iwona Nowacka need your help to create a special silent movie. Do Not Worry will be a film inspired by the cinematic history of Waltham Forest and take its inspiration from local legend. 

We need 100 extras to take part in filming on Saturday 5 October, 10am - 4pm. You do not need any acting experience, just a willingness to take part. 

If you want to get involved please email saying "I would like to take part in Do Not Worry" and one of our producers will get back to you. All ages and abilities welcome. 

Participants must be available for a briefing session on Wednesday 2 October, 6pm - 8pm.
