What We Offer
We are working Film and TV professionals providing practical training for people who want to work in the film industry as extras. We know that professional extras help us all perform at our highest level.
General: This is how you will spend most of your days working as an extra. Playing an ordinary citizen having an ordinary day until something extraordinary happens to the lead actors that you must react to.
Medical: You will occaisonally be required to play some sort of emergency responder such as an ambulance attendant, doctor/nurse or medical technician. Looking like you know what you are doing makes the whole scene better.
Military or Police: Another very common role for background performers is portraying a police officer, soldier or a CSI dusting for fingerprints and collecting evidence. Confidence with your equipment is key to a better performance.
Media: Many scenes take place at a press conference holding boom mikes, cameras, or being part of a media scrum. If you have practical experience using the technical equipment, you help everybody else to do their jobs well.
Hospitality: Many personal scenes take place in restaurant and bars. Serving and bartending skills are often needed to get yourself into the action.
