Working at BCF Casting is very fun because you meet new people, meet actors and actresses (who are very nice) and you get to be part of new upcoming shows.

Fun experience

Working there was a good experience if you want something fun but pay isnt that amazing. You got regular food and a snack shack like area was always set up. Sometimes its confusing what youre supposed to do but it wasnt too bad. They forgot to send me a shuttle once and left me to wait but I was still paid during that time.

Pretty relaxed and lengthy.

Pay is great. Everything is pretty easy, all you have to do is just sign up and schedule your desired days. Sadly, work isn't always available so you have to wait a while. When working for 8hrs or more, you are mostly in a break spot to wait for your role to come. You meet new people every time and you get to see what happens behind the scenes in movies and shows real time. You can see the actors but there are some ground rules to agree on.

Fun and collaborative work environment

This job included early and long hours. The unpredictability of the day does affect ones personal life. It is a fun way to make money however you need to work a lot in order to make a living wage.

great place to work

Meeting new friends and people every day. Always bring something to do while waiting to be called on set because it'll be a long day/night. The only thing that is a con about this is, working an 18-21hr day/night shift.

Pros

pay

Cons

long hours

You are required to act in the background during movies along with television shows. There can be multiple costume changes as well, or you provide the costume designers with your own clothes.

Fun, meet new people

Great people to work with, you get to meet new people and it almost feels too fun for this to be a job. The hardest part of the job was the waiting, but I learned new ways to make time pass.

Pros

Meals and snacks are served

Cons

Long waiting hours

Professional BCF Casting Crew

Our experiences with BCF Casting, the casting directors and their support stuff, have been great - professional! Before we get a job confirmed, we can request for union permit pay - as we are all BG extra union members. The CDs usually respond with yes or no; and the ball is back at our courts to take up the jobs or not? The numerous shows we have undertaken under BCF have been good - the sets were run well, the crafty services (most BGs' concern) were actually well-stocked. In fact, we were pleasantly surprised with the superb, more than enough snacks, etc. served during a show with 300+ BGs. We are with an agent too; and do have jobs with this agent. What I want to say, basically, that those naysayers of BCF Casting - their bad experiences on set - the same negative experiences can be encountered with any agent getting you the shows too. As in any job and environment, I believe if you go into a job with least expectations of benefits but with full charge to do your very best; you will not be disappointed - you may even enjoy your times on sets. I can testify to the positive experiences that our family of BGs have had; way more than the odd negative ones. Extras or being background performers in films is a rewarding and fun job; regardless of who your agent is.

Pros

Professionalism from Casting Agent
