Working on Movies is Extra Cool

Amy Nygaard has been on some super cool sets like Scooby Doo working as an extra.

For all you peeps who are dying to break into the "industry" but just haven't been discovered in line at McDonalds - we've got the 411 on how to do it.

Find out how you too can become a movie extra!

How Do You Become an Extra?

The cool part about being an extra is you don't have to have any formal training to do it. Casting directors look for peeps of all ages, depending on what they are working on and, right now, young people are in high demand (that's you!) But it's not as easy as just showing up on set and working. Amy says that all extras need an agent who will then tell you about the parts you can go for.

Getting an Agent

Agents are not easy to get. You're going to need to throw together a portfolio and start hitting the pavement, handing it out to any agent you can think of. Your 'rents have got to help ya out with this because they should like and trust your agent.

Coolest Movie Set To Work On?

  • Anything with Ben Affleck in it.
  • An action movie like I Spy.
  • I'd much rather work on a TV show, like Smallville.

It's not wrong, it's not right, it's up to an individual tbh. If you're gay, and others have a problem, then it's them that need to change, not you. Don't give in to peer pressure, do what feels right for you

No way! It's definitely NOT wrong. It's your preference! If you're happier with a certain gender, go for it. If your friends can't accept it then maybe they're not the best friends you have. After all, you don't live twice now do ya. :D
