Your Big Break Could Be a Phone Call Away

>> Wednesday, October 08, 2008

My sister in law is fond of telling people that she was in a movie. (Which is true, by the way)

I’m sure that I’ve mentioned that I was in one, as well. (But my portion ended up on the cutting room floor, metaphorically speaking)

Neither of us are actors, nor did we make a huge amount of money for our big screen debuts. We were both “extras” in movies that were shooting locally to where we lived at the time (Wyoming and Minneapolis).

The interesting thing about “extras” is that they are hired wherever a film is shooting- and films shoot all across the country (even here in Iowa). Extras are paid between $100 and $300 per day and don’t have any lines to memorize. Basically you’re a prop. You get to meet some very interesting people (and I’m not talking about the film’s stars who, half the time, aren’t as interesting if they aren’t reading a script) and it's really a lot of fun.

Talent6 is a company that handles the booking of movie extras. If you’re 18 to 85 and interested in learning more call them toll-free at 800-493-9047.

Who knows what could happen… People have been “discovered” in coffee shops and walking down the street. If you have a desire to “break in” to the movie business this could be your shot…
