Helping our SA’s the Uni-versal Extras’ Way!

Uni-versal Extras are on hand to help our Supporting Artists throughout the entire casting process. In today's post

Uni-versal Extras are one of the top Extras’ agencies in the UK and Ireland, which means that we know a thing or two about the world of SA work! We work hard to find the perfect roles for our Extras and support them along the way. In this blog post, we thought we would lift the curtain on some of the ways that UVE help our Supporting Artistes.  

UVE are Here to Lend a Hand!

When Uni-versal Extras was set up, our mission was to make the casting process easier for everyone involved. For almost 16 years, we’ve cast countless roles for thousands of well-known productions and to this day, we’re still as determined as ever to be the best we can be, for both our Supporting Artistes and our clients.

Casting is something we’re really enthusiastic about, which is exactly why we do it! We’re honoured every single time a new Supporting Artiste registers with us, and our mission is to find them their perfect roles. When we receive a role, we don’t just look at the numbers. We delve straight into our pool of Extras and we look at who we think would best fit the role. From there, we reach out to our Supporting Artists who fit the criteria provided to us from the production, and check to see if they’re available for filming before summiting the all-important lookbooks to our clients. It really is as simple as that!

We provide our Extras with the support they need from start to finish. From photo advice, to availability checks, to new communication platforms and top tips to make your profile stand out to productions, we’re on hand to help you every step of the way. One platform we’re super proud of is our UVE Artiste app, which is available for free exclusively to our Supporting Artistes. The app allows our extras to update their profile whilst on the go and also receive notifications about the latest roles straight to your phone.

We always welcome new talent! If you would like to sign up to an agency who really cares about their Extras and Supporting Artistes, register with Uni-versal Extras today!
