Extras Management (X!M) is a fee-based subscription listing/calling service for extras players serious about the business. Because we know not all actors have the same goals or even availability to be submitted for opportunities to work on a regular basis, we offer a tear-based fee structure dependent on your standard availability for submission. The basis of this policy is geared to honor my longtime courtesy credit for struggling actors that may not get chosen by casting on a regular basis. Your STANDARD AVAILABILITY is the cornerstone of our availability/submission system, and based on days of the week our system shows you available to be submitted to Casting for work. All prospective clients must choose or commit to a weekly schedule prior to completing the registration intake process. Once active you can call in or go online via your profile on our website to add additional days or make yourself unavailable for any day you like IF you are NOT already booked on a job. Online changes (when available) are not permitted for the “next” booking day. Next day availability changes MUST to be handled directly via phone with one of our helpful team members.
For those clients available a minimum of five consecutive days a week with a minimum of 20 available days of submission per month. Our flat monthly fee is $75. Should you not be successful in getting booked more than once in a calendar month you will receive a $25 credit towards your following months service fee. If you are fully available a minimum of 20 days based on your recorded standard availability and are not booked at all you will receive a $50 courtesy credit towards your following months service fee. Courtesy credits have no cash value and are only awarded to active and fully paid service subscriptions. We encourage our clients to take an active role in their success and hence do not want to discourage you from submitting to or interacting directly with casting.
However, you must make sure you are not already booked and make yourself unavailable prior to doing so. If you make yourself unavailable to submit for or book a job directly with casting therefore precluding us from booking you there will be no courtesy discount applied to your account in the following month. Work is work, and we most likely already submitted you for the very job you are trying to or feel you booked on your own. We are more than happy to handle details for you even if self booked and in fact would prefer to do so to avoid double bookings. We are a team and you are more than welcome to ask us to submit you for specific roles you become aware of or ask casting to contact us directly on your behalf to avoid double bookings.
After all, that is one of the things you are paying us to do on your behalf. Keep in mind the more days you have showing as your standard availability the more likely casting is to book you. They can see your availability on our website 24/7 and are more comfortable booking you if they feel multiple day jobs or call backs are not going to be an issue. Clients starting service with “Full Time” Standard availability will be charged a prorated fee upon start up based on the days left in the month at a rate of $2.50 per day for the days you have available to work remaining in the month. Courtesy credits are only applicable to your first full calendar month of service. For clients 55 years of age and above the monthly service fee is $60 per month with credit of $20 applied to the following month if only booked once, and a $40 credit if not booked at all. Prorated days for the first month will be calculated based on $2 per day.
Ideal for those working another job or with a limited schedule to submit for work in entertainment. A minimum of one (1) day of “Standard Availability” at a flat rate of $25 per month. You can add up to nine (9) additional days per calendar month at no additional charge. You can add as many additional days in excess of ten (10) days to your availability as you like at a rate of $2.50 per day. The maximum rate you would be billed is $75 irrespective if or how many days you are booked. If you list more than one (1) day as your “Standard Availability” but less than five (5) days per week your initial monthly service fee will be billed in advance according to the terms above based on the number of potential days you will be available for the remainder of the month. Additional daily fees (if any) will be added to your following months service fee charge.
If you elect to go off service for the following month or if your credit card is declined for any reason you will still be obligated to honor excess fees for posted availability days. Should you wish to return to active status, unpaid past due fees would need to be paid in cash at the time of rejoining. For clients 55 years of age and above the rate is $20 per month plus $2 per day in excess of 10 days availability with a maximum billed fee is $60.
Perfect for the working actor with a regular spot on a show or “Stand In” looking to fill in days they are not already booked. Your profile is still active, your work history is visible to casting 24/7 and you have the flexibility to call in or go online and add the days you know you will be available to be submitted to casting. The base fee for this level of service is $20 per month plus $2.50 for each day you make yourself available for submission. Keep in mind casting can see you have only limited availability and this is only recommended for seasoned veterans of the industry that have a professional reputation and repour with casting. For clients 55 years of age and above the rate is $20 per month plus $2 per day made available for submission with a maximum billed fee of $60.
Clients wishing to make themselves unavailable for extended periods but remain on service with an active profile on the website can exercise this option at a flat rate of $10 per month. This status is only available for complete calendar months. Normal service rate will apply for partial months. Another benefit of this status is that clients will not have to apply for one of the limited spots on the roster and risk not getting back on if they were to have gone “off service”.
