Making extras management as easy as it can get.
You can buy our casting services in two different ways:
1 / HIRE US AS YOUR CASTING AGENCY FOR SPECIFIC CHARACTERS
If you’re looking for certain characters or extras for your project, you can just ask us for a quote on the job as you’d ask from any casting agency. As a new service since 2021, we’ve also offered a cast payroll service: we can take care of paying the performers’ fees and also take care of the performer agreements.
2 / HIRE AN EXTRAS MANAGEMENT TEAM FOR YOUR PRODUCTION
Hire a person(s) from us to work on extras and supporting characters casting for your project for a certain number of months or days. Besides the work itself, we offer access to our performer database and casting system as well as the possibility of an extras payroll service and digital contracts with e-signing.
Our casting system makes it possible to sort and search for suitable candidates, export PDFs with performers’ information and send emails and texts to both individuals and multiple people at the same time. Performer contracts customized for the project or production company can be uploaded to our system and sent out easily to multiple recipients for e-signature. Signed digital contracts can then be delivered to the producer as per their wish, e.g. weekly during the shooting period or at the end of the whole production.
We want to offer project-based solutions and do not have a fixed price tag on this service. Depending on the needs of the production, we can find suitable team members to fill your crew – either only by casting the extras or also coordinating them on set. Based on the production size and budget, we can offer workers of different levels to fill in open positions. Their monthly or daily price is always based on the responsibility of the job and the needed skill level. Besides these, our package includes a monthly fee of the usage of our database and casting system as well as a fee for e-signing and payroll, charged according to the number of performers.
Our database in a nutshell:
- contains a register of people who are interested in acting or working as an extra
- includes the persons’ general details, experience, skills, head and body shots
- can be customized per production or per casting call
- has a sorting tool (per age, gender, looks, skills, etc.)
- exports PDFs with customizable info on applicants
- has a GDPR & privacy protocol in place
BBG CASTING – OUR NETWORK OF PERFORMERS IN FINLAND
In 2015, we felt that we needed a good tool for casting extras and actors for productions we were working on. This made us establish BBG Casting, our own casting network for performers around Finland.
We have both a Facebook page to reach interested candidates and our own database to manage the information and make the casting process as efficient as possible.
We work with extras in all kinds of productions and cast talents for commercials, promotional videos, events and short films. We consider our strength to be finding relatable “ordinary people”, and we take pride in doing our part in making the end products more equal, diverse and inclusive.
