If someone wanted to get gay Atlanta’s attention, they might put two of its hottest actors in a film directed by one of its own who’s shooting at the Eagle. Consider it done.
Primary filming has begun on “Test Group,” a new project written and directed by Keith Bailey, who you may also know as a photographer of sexy guys for charity. His zombie film stars hottie gay actor Jared Allman (photo, left) and model, actor, holistic trainer and naked hunk Adam Gates (right) as a gay couple.
“This is the first time gay male couples have been featured in a zombie movie, and it is only one area in which this film breaks new ground,” Baliey tells Project Q. “Although ‘Test Group’ is a horror film, it does not shy away from social hot topics like gay rights, genetically modified foods, or government conspiracies.”
The movie started shooting in May, but Bailey wants to add even more gay to his mix before it gets much further. The Otherside of Georgia Productions – Bailey’s company with locals Ginger Paige and Albert Roberts – still seeks the perfect guy for “Todd Hunter.” The gay speaking role calls for “a white male in his early 20s who is in great shape and has some combat training.”
Oh to be young and buff! If you fit the bill, email a head shot, resume, and video monologue. Even if you don’t, “Test Group” is the first of three in a series, so the future is bright with possibilities for actors playing gay parts.
“The sooner people get in their submissions the better,” Bailey says. “However, if they miss out on this role, there will be other gay roles in upcoming films, so getting their submissions in to us would not be a waste of time.”
If yolu're not an actor but interested in being an extra in scenes shot at the Eagle, there’s room for you to apply too, Bailey assures.
“The plan is to do it the second or third week of August,” he says. “The LGBT community is welcomed and encouraged to be a part of that filming.”
