Synopsis: In our world there’s a positive and negative balance. Few become drawn to the very ends of a single side. Those exceptional few develop time manipulation abilities called, The Energy. Whether they know it now or not, they will have the power to destroy our world or save it, and both sides will try.
“The Energy Begins” is a Dream Maker Films and www.DMFentertainment.com production. The story requires so many extras, about 6000+ in each state across the US (over 300,000 nationwide), that we have planned to take a full year just to film those scenes (we’ll film your state once the required minimum have signed up). At the same time we’ll beat the world record for most movie extras.
This project isn’t just about a great sci-fi film experience or a world record. From the actors, extras, crew, and musicians, a big part is also about giving a lot of unknown talent a chance. If you know anyone interested to become an extra in the film, please tell them to go to the Become an Extra page on this website and add their name to the list!
We’re also offering a great opportunity for product placement. If you’re interested please contact us at www.DMFentertainment.com/contact .

We have a core crew to film the extras, but we’ll be looking to hire small crews to handle 1000 people at a time in each state. Each film crew must have camera experience. If you’re interested in being a part of the crew, sign up at .
We’ve been asked why not use CGI?
Our answer: Real is real and obtaining footage of real people across the US landscape is a key part of the film.
