Working as an Extra

Working as an extra on TV shows and Movies is how I fill my time between stunts and filmmaking. In this video, I was sent to the LA Convention Center!

My day was filled (as it usually is) with a lot of waiting around, and drinking coffee! 🙂

I’ve been in LA for 5 years, and I still fill my free time working as an extra. This is a highly flexible job, that is a prime choice for actors, stunt people, and filmmakers.


A “cattle call” is a nickname given when a TV show or Movie has a particularly large call for extras. It’s when you feel like you’re just being a bunch of cattle, being herded. But this was a particularly pleasant day, and everyone was nice. (Sometimes you run into ADs that treat you like subhuman)

This was also the first time I decided to bring a camera onto a set while doing extra work (aka, background work).

As someone who is working hard to reach my goals, I do extra work in between all of my other projects. What did you guys think of this video? Let me know in the comments! 🙂

Thanks for watching!

Working as an Extra is fun, but there's a lot of waiting around!
