Becoming a supporting artist can be good fun and can never be accused of being your standard 9 to 5 job. We do our very best to find our artistes the best opportunities the industry can offer. In return we ask that our artists follow a few simple golden rules.
While on set you are a representative of Extra People. Conducting yourself in a professional and polite manner will get you a long way.
Very important, Allow yourself plenty of time to arrive on time. Sometimes work starts very early!
It helps if you can interact easily with other members on set. Being polite and helpful can open doors for you.
While the crew gets the scene together, there could be a lot of hanging around.
It’s good to have a selection of smart/casual wear, business suit, evening dress and sport kit. Having uniforms can also be good, e.g. Police, Nurse Soldier etc.
Make a good impression you should always look your best and wear the appropriate clothing if requested.
A good means of transport is necessary; a car is good as some locations could be in remote areas for “scenic work”. Always allow plenty of time to reach your location as traffic could be heavy.
Food is nearly always provided, but note the crew are always fed first, as they have to get back on set. Afterward’s the 2nd assistants and other staff are able to eat.
Be on set as requested and never disappear as this could hold up filming and be expensive.
You may be asked to attend a casting before the producers select their artist. Be ready to be photographed or even put into an improvisational situation or asked to read from a script.
Have your mobile with you, be available at short notice.
We are not offering any promise or guarantees of work, by joining our Directory you are making yourself and your details available to selected Casting Agents and industry professionals.
We ask that all potential artists read and agree to our Terms and Conditions
