The role of an background extra is a simple but very important one. Extras are the anonymous persons who give texture to a scene or background of a Film, TV show, Commercial or Music Video. Extras can be the passersby in busy streets, the crowds in sport stadiums, a platoon of soldiers in a war movie, even a hoarde of brain-hungry zombies!
Yes! No matter what your look, age, size or shape you could be cast in an upcoming movie, or TV series. Just as the real world is full of a huge mix of different people, Television and movie sets also need a variety of diverse people to create a sense of reality that is true to the story.
The amount of work available for an extra changes frequently and depends heavily on what type of productions are being filmed nearby and the current activity in the Film & TV industry. While no agency can guarantee you work, SASS Management's strong presence in the Film & TV Industry ensures we cast for all major productions throughout QLD, NSW and VIC. The presence of Warner Roadshow Studios on the Gold Coast, Fox Studios in Sydney and Docklands studios in Melbourne bring in both National and International work for our extras talent
Working as an extra can be a very unique and interesting experience. extras get to see firsthand what goes on behind the scenes on a working film set while getting paid to do so! It is a great opportunity to meet new people as well as witnessing the stars, directors and film crew create TV and movie magic. As an extra it’s your job to help bring movies and TV sets to life!
Many successful models, actors and industry professionals started out as extras using the opportunity to learn about the industry, further their contacts and build their resume. If you are new to Film & Television and want to see what it’s all about, working as an Extra is a great place to start.
We require all our extras to have an online profile with AT2 so we can put you forward for work and castings.
While extras do not need a photographic portfolio, we do require clear, current photographs of you that are of industry standard. If you do not have industry standard photos we can organise a photoshoot for you.
