A busy Extras Casting Director's office is looking for a call time person to work from home in the evenings 7pm-11pm (or sometimes 12am). There will be occasional mornings where 1hr of work from home will be required.
-Emailing call times for the next day to background agencies in a timely manner
-Occasionally calling independent extras and giving them verbal call times (explaining film sets to them depending on experience)
-Adjusting to last minute changes in schedules/extras lists
-Waiting patiently for confirms from agents and also vital information from set/the office
-Tracking and organising all the information that needs to be sent out and information that is received
-Sending extras lists
For the most part you will work:
Sunday (2 hrs in the morning - 3 hrs in the evening)
You should be:
-Familiar with Excel and fairly competent in using it.
-Comfortable and available working nights (someone able to be home during evenings/nights).
-An exceptional communicator.
-Very organised, but comfortable working with a fast pace and constantly changing information flow
-Professional and well spoken when emailing. (Uses correct spelling and punctuation. Doesn't communicate purely with emojis.)
-Calm and confident under pressure.
Not required but would be an asset:
-Experienced in the film industry, or just a general understanding of how it works (perhaps office PA experience or experience as an extra).
-Ability to read a film call sheet
-A bit of a homebody, likes to be in at night. Although this is a work from home position, you MUST not have other commitments at night (places to drive to, errands to run).
