No man is an island and most films cannot be made without Extras.
“A background actor or extra is a performer in a film, television show, stage, musical, opera or ballet production, who appears in a nonspeaking, nonsinging or nondancing capacity, usually in the background (for example, in an audience or busy street scene). War films and epic films often employ background actors in large numbers: some films have featured hundreds or even thousands of paid background actors as cast members (hence the term ‘cast of thousands’). Likewise, grand opera can involve many background actors appearing in spectacular productions.
On a film or TV set, background actors are usually referred to as “background talent”, “background performers”, “background artists”, “background cast members” or simply “background” while the term “extra” is rarely used.” – Wikipedia
This group of actors and actresses completely blew me away with their professionalism and talent when it came to working on our film. Most of the time extras are not featured or mentioned (by name) at all when promoting a film or television show so, I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you to them by introducing them to you.
Filmmaking is truly a collaborative effort and I could not have completed my film without their help.
We had originally planned for double the amount of background talent to come out for filming but they all flaked. Resilient and determined to continue with our journey, we simply embraced our cast who did show up and will be forever grateful they did. Karma will deal with the rest…
Thank you, everyone.
