BME received a casting call, if you’re interested, information and contact info is below:
MTV Networks and the award-winning producers and journalists at Barcroft Productions are now casting for a new, documentary series. This fascinating series will explore the lives of unique families across America.
We are very interested in speaking to outgoing and opinionated families from the body modification/suspension community, who can accurately represent what it means to be a part of this community and can help to dispel any misconceptions about the lifestyle. We would love to talk to anyone who believes they have a story to tell.
If this sounds like you and your family’s life, we want to hear from you!
Please email us ASAP at: [email protected]
Make sure to include your name, location, contact information, photo and a brief paragraph about you, your family and share details about your lifestyle.
I was sent this request looking for people to appear in a music video. As we always do, I’m posting this request here for anyone who might be interested in taking part.
My name is Jonathan Cozzo, I’m working for a music video production company called Prettybird and we are currently organizing the making of a music video for a major American singer. We are actually looking for people with African scarifications or scars (from wounds for instance) and people with tattoos (of words or sentences) to appear as actors in that video and I was hoping you could help me on this subject.
To give you more details, we’d like several dark-skinned persons with either scarifications on their body and/or face or tattoos (words or complete sentences) to participate in a video shoot next week, on Thursday the 9th. Their participation will of course be paid and expanses covered.
Thank you for your time and help,
Alright NYC ModBloggers, we’ve got a casting call for anyone with heavy modifications.
Law & Order SVU is looking to feature people with extreme body modifications for the upcoming episode “Strange Beauty.” Specifically, we are looking for people with large sub dermal implants, pointed ears, filed teeth, and other alterations and amputations, extreme piercings, and scarification. This is a paid gig in the NYC area, most likely near Coney Island, and will include a brief on-camera feature, no speaking, and no experience necessary. Depending upon the scene and your involvement, rates will vary starting at the regular SAG (Screen Actors Guild) background rate of $142.00 for 8 hours with overtime after 8 hours. The tentative work date is Friday, April 27th. All inquiries about rates and specifics welcome.
Please email photos and contact info to Dominic at [email protected]
He mentioned to me that they might be considering suspensions, so NYC suspension teams, drop them a line as well.
I get these e-mails from time to time, and while this one is looking for a pretty specific group of people, it’s safe to say that it can apply to some ModBlog readers.

Listen up Toronto area ModBlog readers. As you may have heard, Sony Pictures is currently filming Total Recall around the city and they’re looking for some modified people to be in the film. So if you live in or around Toronto, check out the listing below.
Total Recall, a Sony Pictures Film starring Colin Farrell, Jessica Biehl, and Kate Beckinsale, is shooting here in Toronto and requires background performers who have elaborate tattoos (preferably facial and head, neck and arms), multiple visible piercings, and/or any sub/transdermal implants or other body modifications.
