"Life sized garden gnome" - good one! :lol:

I would love a day as an extra, too. I think everyone would love a day as an extra; it sounds really exciting. But I guess most of us would just want it for the sake of doing something different. Just like a vacation. A couple of days can be fun but more than that is too much. So we should trust the expert on these things. JT has the insight and if she says it's sad then I suppose that's what it is. One day would be fun though,... so you gotta see each new day anew JT, imagine it's the first one :wink:
Good luck with your modeling and acting career.

Now back to business: Where's the trailer dammit? Waiting sucks...

I work for Booked Talent...I pay them 60 a month and so far they've been very good, I work 5 days a week doing extra work which is rare, but they're a small company so they can book people more... it's not all that bad though.... I've been on many sets where they treat us nicely... however I think the reason some sets do treat extras poorly is because most extras are very unprofessional and alot of people that do extra work do it because they're too stupid to get any other job, there are so many people in their 40's who are so uneducated and making minimum wage and talking about how poor they are and they smell and they always look like crap, so yea, I'd yell at those people, but I'm young I guess.. I know I won't be doing this work when I'm even 30, I'm hoping that I can start getting real work soon by the time I'm 25 (in February) so that I can ditch this "career" all together, alot of people that do extra work are negative too and they never shower...did I mention they smell?? LOL but there are good sides to it, you can meet people you admire (for me..Jim Carrey, Tom Shadyac, Brian Grazer) and you can make friends with some of the cast and crew, like me and Tom, it's just trying to show that you are different from the other people is sometimes hard but it can be shown... one good thing I got from doing extra work though is being eligible to join the Screen Actors Guild but I won't join yet until I'm ready... well they want me to join by November 12th but I don't have 1500 bucks haha blah so yea... anyway, I dunno what else to say, I could easily work in an office and be "well off" but I like being around cameras and crew people and real actors (not extras) so that's why I do it... plus who wouldn't want to work on a Jim film? ;)

I seem to stand out alot... but yes, alot of extras smell, they smell like old food that's been rotting under their arm pits for 3 days... alot of them don't shower and wear dirty torn up clothes, it's really sad... so this is basically how ALL extras are viewed... but sometimes you can stand out... I usually stay to myself on set tho, omg and there's this one girl who is so drugged up all the time, she looks like a former prostitute lol but all she does is slur and talk about drugs and drinking, it's really sad... I avoid her alot! When I first started extra work I thought it would be alot different than it is... that's one reason I hate doing it, it's such a degrading job but whatever, I don't do it constantly, I do other work in between just to maintain my sanity but when you talk to people who have been doing it for 10 years +, it's kinda sad...they think they're going to be famous or discovered, well extra work isn't the way into fame babe lol

it is fun but it's not super exciting, kind of like acting without words, you can't express yourself as much..

Isn't there a song called "Express yourself"

Postby Canadian Jayne » Wed Oct 25, 2006 4:49 pm

Cotton? is there?

I guess one has to hob nob with the riff raff in order to get the rough cash,
but it sounds like an extra does alot of mish mash among the riff raff even if your sniff snaff gets a bit bashed.

JC, have you ever smelled fresh country air when the barn doors are
open. I know a new name for you JC.

JETectra Extra, how's that one???

I am...and its not really teaching like a school...i work in a daycare with two year olds...so you hear a lot of no and you have to be very repetitive... I love kids, I like my job, I just would like to do something else.
