Description: This is the only DVD to learn all about how to be a movie extra in films, made by losers who have never been able to get a role.
The DVD, a bargain at $2000, tells you in 17 easy steps the tricks of the best extras of the world, none of which you ever heard of.
During shooting of a major film, Rona explains the core functions of background performing, such as walking, eating, and doing nothing. Unfortunately, the extras, who do not have experience in the field, commit blunders and gaffes.
Undeterred, Rona has more tricks up her sleeve to subdue this motley crew. But the situation does not improve when the main actors, snobbish and irreverent, arrive on set.
The large cast includes Martine Berthiaume, known for her role in The Good Judge, Patricia Rheault who draws upon her theatrical experience, Eric Baril, an experienced actor who shines playing ... an experienced actor. The extras are played by the very funny Nicolas Dubus, Kristin Delcellier, Sophie Brunet, Mardy Men, Steve Pereira, Jaime Alberto and Melissa Presz.
