You're in the right place, given the criteria you've set.

I wouldn't hold your breath on the Military Experience bit though.

A few points.

You place people AND students. Are students not people?

You are looking for males with military experience yet you include CADETS and hells bells RAF?

I can be an old soldier (60) the one that the hero shows the pic of his wife / girlfriend / mistress to - just before he cops it.

Good luck.

No, WW3 was only prevented due to having SLR's during the cold war, hence to keep it realistic for the film there will be no SLRs

Er....not to piss in your chips gents....but Universal Extras have been around for at least ten years- and recently gave my son 240 quid for pretending to be a French convict on the set of 'Les Miserables' in Portsmouth dockyard.

So - if you are a retiired Cold War Warrior with more money than you can shake a stick at - feel free to sneer, take the piss and generally deride the whole ish.


On the other hand, if you are

> South Wales based

> Age 18-50

> with previous mil experience (ANY including RAF regiment)

> Do not answer to the name of 'Croesus'


then give them a shout......expect lots of mil style 'hurry up and wait', reasonable scran on set and an hourly rate that works out more than Minimum Pay i.e it beats Tesco/McDonalds/MoD E2

Over to you - or not :)

There are a few people about the Arrse bazaars who have done a bit of time as extras / " Background Artistes " on UK based films - me included.
So far:

'Band of Brothers - with Damian Lewis before he got well known.
Flyboys - WW1 epic with Jean Reno ( after he shot up Godzilla)
Greenzone - Iraq thing with Matt Damon (who?)
Robin Hood - mediaeval thing (also filmed in Welsh Wales) with Russell Crowe
War Horse - with a big white horse
The Cravendale Cats commercial :)


I hasten to add that 'cos I'm well elderly the only ones in which I wore uniform/carried even a rubber movie-style weapon are Greenzone - a fackin ONE STAR :thumright: and 'Robin Hood' - peasant bowman (type casting run riot....Three years at RADA for THIS ?)

I'm aged 18-50 and live near Rhosllanerchrygog :)

You're in like Flynn then ! ( ask your Da)

In comparison with anything remotely real world military it is, if I'm frank, money for old polyprop twist.....dig in boys, fillum boots.

So far, although I only get about ten days work in any given year, I've generally had a laugh.
Good idea to take a tent/ decent sized car or fix to crash at oppos or rellies for cheapo overnight accom though...VERY short notice changes in requirement sometimes...forget International stardom - think 'wallpaper with a pulse' :)

I'd love to do this sort of thing - I missed out on it when I was at Uni - bunch of lads I was in Uni with went and did Saving Private Ryan and Gladiator but those of us not doing basket weaving had exams to do.

Shame I'm stuck behind a desk working for slightly more than they are paying.
