Better Extra Workshop

There’s a saying ‘You don’t notice a good Extra, but you won’t miss a bad one!’

Most Extras rarely receive any set training and have to learn on the job. The Better Extra Workshop and Industry Seminar is the start to a great future.

The Seminar will take a look at how the industry works, different types of agencies and how extras must behave.

Attending the 3 hour seminar is a requirement for all members of VOX Talent Management Agency.
