Since 2005, it’s been our job to matchmake the largest TV, Film and Commercial productions across the country with Supporting Artistes, Extras, Walk-ons and Body Doubles.
And we’ve accumulated a talented bunch, if we do say so ourselves.
With a database of over 300,000 smiling faces, we’re proud to offer the UK and Ireland’s largest Extras directory and regularly get to work alongside the industry’s biggest players. But that’s not all…
Whilst our HQ may be at Pinewood Studios, we work with productions shooting nationwide. That means you can take part in fun, flexible TV and Film work in many major UK cities including London, Bristol, Manchester, Cardiff, Glasgow, Birmingham, Yorkshire and more!
