Have you ever wanted to work on a movie or television show?
Most people do not know this, but it’s pretty simple. If you happen to live near a big city or are close enough where you can travel, check out Backstage for listings of productions that are near you. Central Casting is also a resource for extras casting, so be sure to check out their website as well.
You do not need to have any prior experience or a professional photo to get started. Just use your phone or have a friend take one for you. Create a profile and add your photo and then start submitting yourself for projects.
The days are long as an extra, but being on set is really fun and you get to see the actors in action. You will be fed and paid for your time. You might even get to wear a costume!
In an day and age where anything goes, you never know where it will lead you.
