Originally, I was interested in being an "extra" b/c I need to earn a few more social security credits; this was the best way to do that b/c I can choose when to work since I also work full time as a Research Associate at LSU. I get paid while spending time with family & friends!!
My 1st experience as a background extra was as a spectator at the Final Four in Glory Road. Since then, I have worked as a race spectator in the grandstand on Dukes of Hazzard; funeral mourner on the steps of the State Capitol & speech spectator at the Capitol, fairgrounds, & cane field of All the Kings Men; local townsperson & featured townsperson struck by lightning in The Reaping; Irish con artist living at campgrounds in Low Life;ferry civilian passenger, Canal Street spectator,triage patient, & in security camera footage in DejaVu.
I have 4 sons. Recently , 2 sons, Shawn & Chris, my husband , & I worked together as extras on DejaVu in New Orleans. I believe background extras provide necessary realism to movies & enjoy proving that Louisiana residents can be professional.
This group is well organized ; well connected. My sons & I always leave with notes , positive prospects of work.
