Working Background on a Feature Film

Last week, I had my first opportunity to work as a Background Extra on a Feature Film!

Unfortunately, I'm not able to disclose many details of the film itself, but being on a professional set was such a valuable experience. The actors, director, and crew members were very focused the entire shoot, and I'm glad that I was able to observe the way that they work!


This shoot was also a fun way to grow my network with other actors who are working in Chicago.


Overall, I had a blast and learned a lot. I'd definitely recommend applying for work as a background actor to anyone who is new in the industry and wanting experience on an efficient, professional set!
