Many times, a shooting day can be 14-16 hours long. Please don’t commit to the day if you can’t complete the day. Many times, extras are booked on very short notice. Please be sure we have the best number where you can be reached at all times. Keep your cell phone turned on! Know your union status. If you are non-union, you may receive a “waiver” for the day.
Have a pen and paper ready! You will be given:· Wardrobe specifications - listen carefully, these will be specific. What season clothing should you bring? Are there any colors prohibited? Usually, Black, white, red, wild colors and logos are prohibited.· Location to report – Be sure you know where you’re going. Buy a good map of the area. (unfortunately, the internet maps are NOT reliable)· Call time – Be on time! The production company has the right to dismiss (without pay) any extra who is late for call time (even ONE MINUTE!) Take into consideration if your call time is around rush hour or if there is construction along your way.· You are not officially booked until you receive a call time. Call times are generally not released until the film finishes shooting on the previous day. You may not get that call until late in the evening. If it is a night shoot, we probably will call you the morning of the shooting day with your call time.·
Pay attention to your “wrangler”. There is always a crew member assigned to background talent. He/she needs to know where you are at ALL times. Please don’t wander outside of assigned areas.· Cell phones and pagers must be off or on vibrate! Also, leave cameras at home.· If they request to use your car in the shot, be sure it has a full tank of gas. You may also be asked to bring a specific prop ( briefcase, bookbag, etc.) Generally, you are reimbursed for use of these things.
