Aside

I was working on the set of Ides of march with George C looney.  I was waiting in holding when a PA (production assistant) came and got myself and 2 other people to fill a scene. Of course I was snacking at the time and needed to place my granola bar down.  I started running down the hall to catch up to the others when I bumped into the man from behind….I was thinking move dud I need to be on set and you’re in the way! Wow, was I surprised when he (George) turned around and said “do u always run into people or only on this set?”  I didn’t know what to say as my heart was pounding so fast!

This book is the perfect road map to guide you through the exciting but occasionally overwhelming world of the background actor. Learn everything from on-set terminology and etiquette to wardrobe and make-up. Get insider secrets on how to not only survive long film shoots, but thrive and make the most of the extra opportunity. As a producer whose project’s success depends on the performance of our background actors, I sincerely hope you read this book before coming to set.
