BAME Extras Needed for Television Agency
As an agency we are looking ahead to forthcoming productions. We have found that BAME extras are massively unrepresented across the industry. This is something we are addressing and want to change. We are looking to increase the diversity of talent we represent, making our book truly representative of the population. There is so much work for BAME artists that we can usually offer opportunities within a week - this is no exaggeration. Every single BAME artist that popped in to see us last week has now been booked for work.
This opportunity is available to any BAME extras aged 16 and over.
We are looking for people within (or within easily commutable distance) to Manchester, Leeds and Liverpool. This is where the vast majority of productions film in addition to where all our major soaps are based.
Established in 1998 we provide a wide range of artists to the media industry. We work a massive amount of productions.
The work for extras can be broken down into two areas – drama and commercial. Our years of experience have seen us achieve preferred agency status from the BBC and ITV as well as many other well-known production companies.
Drama covers everything from...
TV soaps - We work on a variety of TV soaps - Coronation Street and Emmerdale are the busiest, amongst others.
Television dramas - Recent credits include Peaky Blinders, Gentleman Jack, Years and Years, Cold Feet, Victoria and Happy Valley to name a few.
Feature films – Amongst others our artists featured in a new upcoming Marvel film “Morbius”, ‘Watchmen’, Downton Abbey. Other well-known credits include ‘Darkest Hour’, Fantastic Beasts and where to find them. Kings Speech, the Sherlock Holmes movies amongst others.
Commercials can be for anything from McDonalds to Nivea - we've worked with a massive range of brands and are the preferred supplier for one the the biggest marketing agencies in the world for their North of the UK.
The work can be regular (not full time) for those who are interested, or less regular, depending on your situation. It’s up to you what you undertake.
This is some of the most highly sought after work in the industry, as such we are only looking for those with a genuine interest and passion for it. Those who are reliable and dedicated.
All work roles (equity rate or higher).
Once you complete your application our team will review it and contact you if you are successful. Successful applicants will be invited to the office to meet the team. We will go through everything and get you started.
We look forward to hearing from you.
