Vancouver and the surrounding areas are the setting for many productions in the B.C. Film industry. Our background roster works regularly on these projects where extra’s can portray people in any major cosmopolitan city in the world to town folk in the wild west, and everything in between.
We look for people who have a minimum of 2-3 flexible days per week available (not including weekends), with transportation and a professional work ethic. This type of work fits well with other part time employment or jobs where you normally work on weekends.
Background work is an interesting way to learn about the film industry first hand by watching from both behind the scenes and in front of the camera. Rates will normally start at minimum wage but can be higher if you offer a special skill or ability necessary in the production. Many people choose background work over other tedious jobs because of the variety and excitement of being part of a production such as :
Supergirl, Altered Carbon, Date My Dad, Mech X4, MC2, Unreal, Somewhere Between, Van Helsing, The Interview, Go With Me, The Lottery, The 9 Lives of Louis Drax, Arrow, Supernatural, The Flash, Cedar Cove, Mistresses, Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce, The 100, Motive, The Flash, IZombie, Witches of East End, Bates Motel, Once Upon a Time, Timeless, Lucifer, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Garage Sale Mystery, Like Cats and Dogs, Light of My Life, and many more…..
The people you see here are a very small fraction of our background roster, but an indication of the types of people who we represent for this type of work.
