Extras? Who are they? Where do they come from and what exactly are they doing? But most of all: what are they NOT supposed to do? Background actors are often underestimated: a movie or a television series can’t simply be produced without them. ExtraZ explores the ‘do’s and don't’s’ of background acting, embedded in the sensation, emotion and humour of life on the set.
