Extras Casting Director

You know that waitressing dream where you're taking orders in your sleep, and you're in the weeds and you know you're dreaming, but you just can't stop?

Switch out "extras" for "waitressing" and change the taking order parts to "casting extras" and you have my life - constantly thinking about extras.

There is plenty to know about how to be a happy and informed extra on set; this is why I wrote this E-book.

The well-being of extras on set is immensely important to me. Being an extra can be a wonderful experience. It can also be not so wonderful. If you are prepared, it can be exceptional - if not, it can be miserable.

This E-book is for the NEW EXTRA - no need to purchase if you are already one of my fabulous working extras. You already know this info!

Only $18.00 - a portion of the profits go to Heifer International

Heifer's strategy is to "pass on the gift." As people share their animals' offspring with others - along with their knowledge, resources, and skills - an expanding network of hope, dignity, and self-reliance is created that reaches around the globe.
