There's clearly an error in those requirements - it doesn't say anything about big tits.

I've got a bit of a beer gut but a cracking 'tash, any jobs going for CQMS types for the warriors, not handing out spears or ray guns without the necessary authority?
Corrected :D

Whatever happened to CGI?

I notice that you have asked the well toned young ladies to send in photos of themselves in their underwear. As a fully qualified perv I would like to offer my services as a scrutineer of these photos in order that you are able to pick the most suitable for Disney.
p.s.
Can I have the ones he disnae want (see what I have done there eh?)

After a few days of on-set catering one is unlikely to remain fit & toned, in my experience...

Yup, because extras are bottom of the chain and you'd get half a saucer of left over rice and salmonella.

(Edited as I am incompetent on predictive keyboard).

Not when I've been working on film sets, believe me. The breakfasts alone could have kept me set up for a day or so...

This is also being aired by other well-established casting outfits (e.g 2020, CastingCollective, MadDog etc).

( Universal Extras target students who need to earn a few bob.......the lad has been on their books for about a year and to date never had so much as a text to my knowledge.....)

This is a genuine call - gym-gods who fit the bill and have some spare time in the M25 travel to work zone may wish to consider. Pay varies - if it is FAA rates it seems to be c£100 for a day, less deductions.

Not sure how Regs square away with management - presumably if you have leave due what you do in your spare time is your biz.

ID requirements ( current passport and NI number usually) are to prevent the employer ( whoever it is) from falling foul of rules on illegal migrant workers.

Scran is variable ( breakfast is usually OK if you arrive early), lot of standing around doing nothing , don't expect to be asked to scale battlements with an FOB knife in your teeth, even if that is your dayjob - stuntplayers get more money!

Be polite, be in the right place at the right time with the right kit - you'll get more work. Nightshoots pay more.

Last year I had about 10 days work in all ( but then I'm only signed with one agency, lot of folk sign up with three or four). Made a few bob and had a laugh. Over to you.
