MovieExtras.ie is Ireland's leading directory of film, TV and advert artists. We provide both a casting service and a directory of artists who are available for extra, modelling and acting roles throughout Ireland (32 counties).
Based in Ardmore Studios, in the heart of the film industry, MovieExtras.ie has been supplying artists to the Industry since 2002. We have a team of 11 people who look after the various requirements.
While we do have members who are full time actors and models, most of our members are working in other jobs or taking time out and enjoy the odd day here and there on set. While we can never guarantee you work, 82% of our members received paid work last year. There is also never a requirement to accept a job, you can choose what opportunities you'd like to follow.
After registering, you fill in a detailed CV, including your availability, experience, hobbies skills etc. You can attend one of our monthly photoshoots where you will get professional photos. You can upload further photos directly onto your account, especially important if you change your look at any stage. These photos should be clear and updated every 12 months.
Registration with MovieExtras.ie includes online training and annual off line training session.
From your perspective, this service will mean that you do not have to queue for hours to put yourself forward for a production or send in lots of CV's to production companies. We have over 800 casting director and production companies registered to access our directory.
We have being involved in over 1,000 productions ranging from the big productions such as Penny Dreadful, Ripper Street, Fair City, Love/ Hate, The Tudors, RAW, Rock Rivals,PS I Love You, Tigers Tail, through to 100's of adverts, including ads where our members without any formal experience have got paid in excess of €3,000 for a day’s work! While this is the exception rather than the rule, you never know what might happen!
Most of the work is in the Dublin, Wicklow area and it's important to note that there are less opportunities for under 18s.
We have some really useful tools to help you find, cast and contact the artists that you need. Whether it is extras, special extras, mid tier actors, models or even presenters.
You can search our database and contact artists for FREE! Using our text messaging and email service, you can save yourself hours and hours of time.
