New Course at the University of New Orleans Metropolitan College

Movie Extra 101--Your Shortcut to Stardom
Movie Extra 101 is offered again this summer 2005 through UNO's Metro College. In this two-day, four-hour class students learn how to get work in New Orleans as a movie extra and what to expect once on the set. This course is taught by Gary Michael Smith who has appeared in five major motion pictures and five made-for-TV movies, and has worked with three casting companies to cast hundreds of movie extras.

In Movie Extra 101 you'll discover why so many films have moved to New Orleans (often referred to as "Hollywood South") and elsewhere in Louisiana, and how you can be a part of the business. You'll learn about open casting calls and what to expect, as well as how to find and apply directly with casting companies. You'll find out about acting classes and what they offer. You'll learn about talent agents and whether or not you need one, and you'll be given advice on getting speaking roles and the impact to you as a budding film star. You'll even be given information on working with casting directors as a casting assistant as well as working with production companies as a production assistant. Numerous local and state resources will be provided as well as general information on the film and television industry as a whole. Don't miss this chance to be a part of the New Orleans' film industry!
