LOVE IS___ DETAILS WEDNESDAY 5/16/2018
Please remember this is a job. You are expected to be on set at your given call time. If you must cancel due to an emergency, you must call 404-920-8011. Our office is open 24 hours a day. It is never too early or too late to call with questions or to relay important information to us.
Read through the following guidelines to ensure you have a successful day on set. Being professional and prepared will increase your chance to be asked back and recommended for other background work.
1. Don't be late
Please add at least an additional 30 minutes to your travel time to account for parking and check-in. Be prepared for Atlanta's heavy traffic. Wardrobe, hair, and makeup depend on you being on time. Please be respectful and show up early. You can be sent home without pay if you are not checked in by your call time.
2. Days are long
Be prepared for filming to take anywhere from 6-12 (or more) hours. Please bring something to keep you occupied while you are not filming. We also recommend bringing your own snacks with you to set. Craft service's food will be minimal.
3. Pay attention
Always be actively paying attention to what is happening on set. Part of being a good Background Actor is knowing what is going on.
4. Don't talk on set
It is important to be quiet on set to allow the crew to work and so you know what's going on. When the director yells "rolling" that is your cue to be silent and focus on being in the scene. Please be respectful to the cast and crew. Do not speak to a cast member unless they speak to you first.
5. Don't sleep on set
We know call times can be early and days are long, but it's important to be alert and vigilant on set. You may be able to take a quick nap in holding between shots.
6. Bring a pen
You will need a pen to fill out your voucher to ensure you get paid.
7. Closed set
This is a closed set. Only come to set if you are booked or are accompanying a minor or elder. You are not allowed to have visitors while on set.
Filming is rain or shine.
Call Time: Please call 470-705-2925 to obtain your call time.
This line will list your call time by the category given to you in your text message and will always be updated with call time changes. It is common for call times to change and for notes to be added to your details. Please be sure to call the call time change number before you go to sleep, when you wake up, and before you leave for set to make sure you have the most accurate and up to date information for your booking.
