Standing Out in the Background

If you always wanted to get in front of the camera in show business, and you have no idea how to go about it, keep reading for the answers. This guide is a quick-read on effective strategies to get work in the competitive creative arts industry in Toronto. Despite my 2 left feet, the vocal range of an Arctic char, and the inability to bluff at bridge, I have gotten work in front of the camera, being hired as Background talent (also known as an Extra, which I will refer to as Background Talent/Extra work or BTE) and met many others who shared their secrets.

The Earth was small, light blue, and so touchingly alone, our home that must be defended like a holy relic. The Earth was absolutely round. I believe I never knew what the word round meant until I saw Earth from space.


For those who have seen the Earth from space, and for the hundreds and perhaps thousands more who will, the experience most certainly changes your perspective. The things that we share in our world are far more valuable than those which divide us.


It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth. I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth. I didn't feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.
