Every month, I try to find a fun business idea that you may not have considered.
This month is a really cool one, if I do say so myself.
Although I’m one who prefers to hide from the camera, I do appreciate those who are braver than I am! 🙂 There’s even a section in this guide about getting your kids on camera. Now, that could be fun!
If you swing by the site, you can get a free chapter of the book just to learn more.
What is this business?
Become a Background Actor a.k.a Movie Extra and work on film, TV and commercials. If you think about it, the stars of the movie would look pretty silly having a conversation in a diner if no one else was there. The background actors – extras – are there to make movie and TV scenes look realistic.
Anyone can be a movie extra. You don’t need any experience, you don’t need to have taken acting classes and you don’t need to be a particular age. All that’s needed is the right look and the ability to take directions and some patience. Having the right look doesn’t mean you have to be glamorous – there is just as much work for regular or unusual looking people.
