You may not have what it takes to be a big star, but you've probably noticed that virtually every movie and TV show involves many regular folks as well - the "little people" who have no lines to say, but who portray members of the crowd, passersbys or the customers in restaurant scenes: these background people are movie "extras". Being an extra won't make you a star, but it will get you inside major movie and TV studios, onto real movie sets, often alongside bona fide stars - and if you're lucky, you will get your face on the silver screen - if only for a fleeting moment. (As Andy Warhol said , "In the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes.") Have you ever wondered just how these movie "extras" get their jobs? Well, you too can try your luck with Central Casting in Burbank, where all the movie studios go for "extras" (otherwise known as background actors with non-speaking roles). There are lots of scams out there, trying to take advantage of naive wannabes, but Central Casting is strictly on the up & up - it's the largest extras casting company in the United States. www.seeing-stars.com

Becoming a movie extra is by far the easiest way actors can break into show business. Movie extras learn all the tricks of the trade through real world, on-set experience. Plus, talent agents, casting directors and production companies are always looking for movie extras and background performers for their productions. Every year hundreds of films are shot on location across the country and around the world. These productions range from locations in the largest cities to the very smallest villages. When filmmakers decide to leave the studio, casting directors must find local citizens for small acting roles and to appear on screen as movie extras. Moviex makes it easy for talent agents, talent scouts, casting directors, producers and potential employers to locate willing participants for their production needs. www.moviex.com
