Great opportunity

No matter what your look, age, size or shape you could be cast in an upcoming movie, or TV series. Just as the real world is full of a huge mix of different people, Television and movie sets also need a variety of diverse people to create a sense of reality that is true to the story.

Don’t worry, they won’t ask you to sing or dance, or even read a script. To be an extra doesn’t require too have much skill at all. What do the people in the background do? Stand there; pretend to talk, and act natural. Doing extra roles initials most working days waiting around. Taking a book, or phone/tablet is totally fine.

An extra job is to help bring movies and TV sets to life!

Whether you are looking for a place to start your acting career or simply want to get on set to catch a glimpse behind the scenes, working as an extra can be a very unique and interesting experience. Extras get to be behind the scenes on a working film set and get paid for it. This can also e a great opportunity to meet new people as well as the stars, directors and film crew that create TV and movie magic.

Many big names started out as extras using the chance to educate themselves about the industry, further their contacts and build up their portfolio. If you are new to Film & Television and want to see what it’s all about behind the scenes, then working as an Extra is a great place to get started.

Extra work is really easy to do because you play a role based on how you look.

Working on set can be longer than a 14-hour shift and complaining or looking bored will only earn you enemies. It’s wise to keep your phone that are handled by the website or tablet fully charged to play games between scenes or catch up with friends. Paid to play games on your mobile for hours on end is not so bad.

Sometimes people are cast because they have a special ability (i.e. play an instrument, qualified doctor or is a craftsman, etc.) and having a special ability could get you higher paying work. There’s little skill involved in being a movie extra. … It’s all based on a look, and any other skills you may have.
