A couple of months ago we had over 100 people appearing in a new Nike commercial. Now that shooting has finished and the editors have put together the footage, it turns out that a few of our extras will be getting an upgrade payment. This is reasonably common in fact. Sometimes a particular performer will appear in the foreground of a shot rather than as part of the background, in other cases they might be asked to say a couple of lines. It’s times like this that the agent representing the performer (that would be us), negotiates a higher fee for that appearance. Pretty sweet hey!
