Inside The Extras Dept.


06 August 2014
We are currently in the throws of a number of productions and our casting team are trawling our website daily looking for the right faces, these selections are presented to directors, assistant directors, costume departments, make up artists and hair stylists. So please listen to us when we say YOUR PHOTO IS TOO IMPORTANT TO GET WRONG. The people we show your pictures to, and us ourselves, look at your photos very quickly, not only do we need to be able to see exactly what you like NOW but your photo has to grab us - you need to look engaging and professional - that you take being an extra seriously and have made an effort to be involved, as why else should we consider bringing you onto a multi-million pound set it you haven't or aren't serious about it? We also don't want our image of you to be tainted by the association with a nightclub, a wedding, or a holiday location, we want to see you as a blank canvas that we can then imagine you in either a futuristic sci fi robot battle or a medieval banquet. Therefore a neutral expression also will lend you to more roles too. You'd be surprised by the reasons that people get quickly discounted and how many people were not selected for different roles and different productions on the basis of a shoddy photo! We know lots of you have been gagging for the new photoshoot date, and apologies it has taken so long, but here you go: SATURDAY 16TH AUGUST 2014 We strongly recommend you book your timeslot now! The booking form is now online. All you need to do is go on to our website, log in to your personal profile & click on 'Book a Photoshoot'. You will be emailed a confirmation email to tell you where to go(Belfast City centre location) & what to do before the photoshoot itself - make sure to check your spam/junk folder if it doesn't appear in your inbox. Getting your photo taken costs £25 (Pay on the day) we will update your profile for you and you will be emailed the final photo to keep 4 weeks after the photoshoot. Many thanks, & hope to see lots of you at the photoshoots and lots of poor photos replaced by amazing ones! ENI x
