Joining the Agency
Registering for Extras and Featured Extras Work
We are currently accepting people of various looks and ages for extras and featured extras work. You don't need experience or training to be put forward for these roles as they're usually visual based e.g. you look the role or have a real life skill the production is seeking to fill. Extras roles pay about $30ph however Featured Extras usually pays $1,500-$20,000+ per day depending on a number of factors such as how featured you are, how long the add is going to run for and the number of territories the add is going to be played in. We have people working most days of the week in film and television work but for most talent the work is intermittent meaning it shouldn't be relied on as a regular source of income. It is a great way of experiencing what its like to work on set when you do achieve a role and the rate of pay for one or two days is usually exceptional too..
Minor Acting Roles / Featured Work
A good deal of featured television commercial work requires some basic acting training or experience, as it involves doing something in addition to just looking the part . These roles usually only last for a few seconds on screen but casting directors expect previous training or experience for us to put you forward for them. This is also the case for minor roles in films or television productions.
Acceptable acting training or experience is required for us to put you forward for such work. These roles range from a performance on a television commercial through to a credited role on a film or television production.
If you don't have professional acting training or experience we conduct one day casting/acting workshops from time to time by a professional casting director/acting coach. These are an excellent opportunity to learn from one of the most experienced casting directors in the business. The workshops include acting techniques and principles as well important casting techniques to help you land the role when attending a casting. A large number of television commercials we get each week ask for some acting training or experience and this course gives you all necessary skills and the qualification required for us to submit you for minor acting roles for TVCs and minor parts in film and television production.
