Did you know that there are hundreds of Sydney-siders required for background acting roles in movies and TV series every month?
Imagine spending your spare time on the film set of a major Hollywood production like Pacific Rim 2 or Alien Covenant?
Imagine telling your friends and family that you appeared in the latest Peter Rabbit film or Jackie Chan’s Bleeding Steel.
What about appearing on a TV series like Love Child, A Place to Call Home or Janet King?
MCTV people appear regularly in TV commercials too where the rates of pay can be astounding. It’s quite normal to be paid several thousand dollars for a TV commercial appearance.
Most of the time though, the pay is not so outrageous. Working as a background actor on a film or TV set usually pays $200-300 for eight hours work. Still a nice amount to have in your pocket for something that is so fun and interesting.
