Hi everyone,

What are the best agencies for finding extra work for tv/ film?
I have had some experience and am looking to do more of this sort of thing.

Ive just tried to sign up to these but they're requesting payment. Im guessing this is a no go?

You shouldn't pay!  I'm with an agency who provide models, actors and TV exta's etc etc.  They don't take any money but charge 17% of what you earn.

I have a friend who has worked with them in Coronation Street

But dont expect to get rich as your travelling costs can wipe out your fee if you are a distance from tv studios

Good luck

Paul
.. it is what you leave out of the photograph that makes the picture

I've worked on Waterloo Road via Impact Model Agency in Widnes, Cheshire. I only got £75 for a LONG day and no travel expenses. However my son did something for Hollyoaks and got over £200. The agency say it depends on 'what you have to do'. It IS fun and I hope to do more later in 2013 when I've more time. Makes a change from other work. Just don't spend all your money on 'getting there' to whereever the shoot is!
Fun, friendly and experienced mature model with lively personality and youthful figure!

£75 for a long day is about right. It is quite common to be "needed" on set from 7am to 7pm as a minimum, and that could over-run.

As has been said, look at it as fun and something interesting if you want to know what goes into producing a film or TV prog, but it's very, very unlikely you'll be spotted and catapulted to Stardom.

You could even work with some famous Actors, and if you wanted to do a bit of creative writing to boost your portfolio/C.V., then you could include that in your "Worked With" List.
I'm thinking of changing mine now........

Worked With: Johnny Depp, John Malkovich, Samantha Morton, Johnny Vegas.
may look impressive on my Profile.....

Dave.
p.s. That worked with list is all true, and it was generated by just one Film. So if you're particularly bored, have a quick game of "Name That Film". And no Googling Cast Lists!
