GREEN BAY — As filming continues for a Green Bay based historic thriller, the director is calling for extras for three more shoots in the Green Bay and Door County areas.

The independent film “Room 108: The Clearing” is time-traveling thriller set in 1899 and 1999.


The film is based on the urban legend of Green Bay’s Vic Theatre, where opening night for city’s newest theater on February 24, 1900 would prove to be fatal. One century later, seasoned paranormal investigator, Joe Bale, returns to the quiet Northern Wisconsin town to shed more light into the matter.

The casting calls include a scene in mid-March in a theater in Green Bay, Curly Lambeau’s baptism party April 15 in southern Door County and a Memorial Day shoot in Green Bay. APPLY

Filmmaker Freddy Moyano of Green Bay is directing and stars in the film, and is planning the premier for August, 2023.

A writer, artist and filmmaker, Moyano is the founder of Green Bay’s MLC Film Festival.

The mid-March shoot calls for more than 150 extras.

Extras will be dressed in late 1800s clothes for one of the key scenes in the film.

It is unpaid but every extra will receive IMDb credit.

Moyano says he anticipates about a 4-6 hour shoot. He says it should be a fun day inside a historical location downtown Green Bay.

While they may have some hats and accessories, every extra will need to come in fully dressed. Moyano says he will arrange a wardrobe day two weeks before for extras to come in to a downtown Green Bay location with options so that we can pick final choices.
