Film and TV Military Advisor?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Some years ago, a friend of mine (ex-Para) landed himself a job working as military advisor on a TV series (Seaforth if anyone remembers it).

    The job he described would be well within my capabilities (advising on uniforms and weaponry and the wearing and handling of same) and (most importantly) it was very well paid and a real cushy number.

    Would anyone have any idea where to find out how one gets into this trade? (I haven't seen the chap in question for ages).
  2. Yes but it's very much a closed shop.

    I'd suggest starting off working as an extra and getting your face known. You'll need to find a good agency and I'm afraid I don't know who are any good these days.

    If I think of anything I'll send a PM.
