Frequently asked questions

If this is free, how do we make money?

Simple. We’re not an “agency”. We don’t represent anyone. We are hired by producers to find extras to appear in their projects

How much do extras make?

It depends on the budget of the project. Yes, we are sometimes asked to find extras willing to work for free, but we don’t expect you to do that. Feature film extras typically make anywhere from around $58-$100/day while spending a fun day on set (at $58-100/day. Do you really want to pay someone else a commission out of that?). Commercial extras usually make between $100-$370/day, depending on the project.

How does this work?

It’s easy. Just provide us with your email address. Nothing more. We don’t need any other information from you. You will be added to our email list. When we have a need for extras, we send out emails with all the particulars to the people on our list. Those particulars include the job info, location, time of day (if we know it) and pay rate. If you are interested, just send your info to us according to the instructions on the casting call. You will need to also send a picture, so go ahead and have a recent photo of you on hand, preferably a head and shoulders shot and a full body shot. It doesn't need to be professional. Get someone to take a couple photos of you on your phone. That’s it. If you are selected, we’ll see you on set!

How do I get paid?

When you are on set, you will fill out paperwork with the production company. Be sure to bring all necessary documents with you (like a driver’s license or passport, etc. You may be asked to bring a utility bill or something that proves you are an Oklahoma resident). Within a matter of a few days to a couple of weeks, your check will be sent directly to you from the production’s payroll company. Nobody else will get their hands on your money. Nobody will deduct commissions. What you make is what you get (minus any state and federal withholdings).
