"A film is only as good as it's worst extra"
Angela Heesom; Casting Director
Due to the growing demand for professional film extras on set, in 2008 Heesom Casting launched the original Extras Register developed by Heesom Casting to streamline the extras casting process for producers & also broaden the opportunities of being cast for actors & talent.
Our extras casting crew have been involved in the extras casting of many projects major and high profile over the years. This includes many of the local TV commercials shot in South Australia as well as productions such as:
Wolf Creek 1 & 2
Wolf Creek - The TV Series
Broken Hill (over 1,000 extras cast alone!)
Sam Fox: Extreme Adventures (Network 10)
Rabbit Proof Fence
Hey Hey It's Esther Blueburger
Closed For Winter
Look Both Ways
You Better Watch Out
Plus many many more films and many of the tv commercials we cast!
