ANYONE can become an agency member. Most people think we only hire extras, but this is not true. Our job is very diverse, so we always require models, amateur actors, people who posses a special skill such as fire eaters, jugglers, people with specific hairstyles and so on.
It is true that people who want to be an extra get the most work, but good-looking men and women in their 30s and 40s get the best honorariums.
It is considered that, in order to become a member of ours, you have to be unemployed. This information is not correct. We call our members and send them on castings which are held throughout the entire day, so you don’t lose a day at work. If you pass and get the part, then it is required of you to take a day off from work but for a substantial honorarium, we’re sure everybody can manage one or two days off for the shoot. The same rules are applied to extras with a task or amateur actors.
A regular extra’s job is a bit different. This is most fitting for unemployed persons, students and pensioners because filming takes up a whole day and it’s usually done on a weekday.
You will find detailed information regarding what are your rights and responsibilities in our book of regulations. By signing with the agency, you’re signing to honor the terms stated in the regulation, so make sure to read it. In short, a person who is a member of ours is not obliged to show up to a shoot or a casting, but if they agreed to accept the job, then it’s their duty to be present. Specifically, it means that if we call you for a shoot taking place the following day, you can decline but if you agree and tell us that you’re coming then it is your duty to follow through. Our company is very professional when it comes to this line of work, so your irresponsibility also makes us look bad.
Keep in mind that you will be contacted by our colleagues for certain projects, but if you never ever respond we will consider you to be uninterested and delete your info from the base.
