Working on Movies is Extra Cool

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. Instead of waiting around for something to happen, those of you caught by the acting bug have to get out there and show the world what you're made of. That's what Amy Nygaard did and it's paid off. 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. In your portfolio you'll need head shots (which cost between $200-500,) a five-minute demo tape (which shows you acting a bit,) and a resum

This is going to sound completely cliche, but the best thing is to just be yourself. You'll make friends no problem. People can tell when you're being genuine or not, and they definitely appreciate you for who you are more than if you tried to be someone else. You got this, it'll be a fun and exciting experience. :)

I am so sorry for your loss. It must be tough going through this at the moment, losing someone is always a difficult situation. Grief can be unsettling and uncomfortable, but is a normal and necessary part of grieving and getting yourself through these types of things. I encourage you to continue to remember her, whether it be through stories or drawings or other ways you might express your good memories together. You could also do something in her memory such as plant a tree. Healing from loss takes time. There's no magic fix that'll make you feel better overnight. You just have to let yourself go through the process and eventually you will feel better. I promise. I'm also here if you feel like talking about it at any time, just send me a request.

On a typical day I wear a pair of ripped jeans and either a hoodie or jacket, and a snapback. The opposite would probably be a dress lmao.

I also love expensive clothing. Brand names are my thing. But I always shop either during sale times or at second hand stores. Sales are my best friend, honestly. It might be frustrating to wait, but it's worth it in the end. Shop only on sale racks in big stores, and scout out smaller second hand stores that often carry brand names, never worn, but for a cheaper price.

Hello! I'm in need of urgent advice. The guy I have a crush on and I were best friends around two years ago. Somebody told him that I like him, and now he avoids me like the plague... I really just want to be friends with him again even if he doesn't like me back. What should I do? I'm quite an awkward girl, and I can't make conversation for the life of me. We're going into seventh grade, and I haven't talked to him nor seen him all summer. Please help!
