Fifth Mate Productions and Jerry Bruckheimer Films have now set a new
start date to begin filming on the Walt Disney Pictures fantasy
adventure comedy feature film "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell
No Tales". The Casting Society of America Artios Award winning casting
director is set to begin holding auditions in Los Angeles for lead and
supporting roles. Shooting will take place in Los Angeles, United
Kingdom, Louisiana, and Hawaii beginning October, 2014 and will continue
through approximately April, 2015. "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men
Tell No Tales" will hit theaters in 2016.

Doing extra work generally does not pay very well, but can be a great learning experience for someone
interested in acting. For others, it can be a very fun experience!

    I love acting, it doesn't matter how big or small the role. I'd do it for free, I'd sleep in a tent if I had to.

    I would do it if everything was included travel, lodge, food. A movie of this magnitude should pay at least $200 a day for extras knowing it will be long days.

    The going pay for an 'extra' [via Central Casting] way back in 1975 or '76 was $100/day. So $65/day is not really at all reasonable considering inflation etc. I'd think somewhere between $200 to $300/day should be about right considering inflation, but I really don't know what Central Casting is paying 'extras' these days. I looked this up and couldn't believe what I saw.

    Unbelievable, todays extras are paid peanuts by comparison to the 1970's! See:

    Base Rates-Overtime-Double Time for 'Extras'
    The base rate is the amount of money that an EXTRA will make for any work done during the first eight hours of being on set. It is also the figure that is used to determine overtime and double time rates. The base rate for Non-Union EXTRAS is $54.00 and the rate for Union EXTRAS is $110. To get overtime and double time rates, you will divide the base rate by 8. This number is then times by 1.5 to get the hourly rate of pay for overtime hours and by 2 to get the hourly rate of pay for double time hours. Therefore the rates for Non-union EXTRAS are $10.13 per hour for overtime (hours 9, 10, 11, 12 worked) and $13.50 per hour for double time (all hours after 12th hour worked). Rates for Union EXTRAS are $20.63 for overtime and $27.50 for double time.

    And some still aren't convinced that they are slaves!

    I already have a job I love, so doing something I have a passion for $65.00 a day? There would be no question about it, absolutely yes!

    $65 bucks a day that's more than a days work at minimum wage where I live. yes!
  • steffan... Catheri... 2013/12/05 23:21:33
    Of course..y money is if you're speaking a part.I got a chance to be in a few movies over on the islands and I had a great time 65 bucks a day.. Doesn't even matter because it's just fun.. you do get paid extra money if you have to get blown up or have to blood work or anything like that so their bonuses and craft services that's always good

    I'd probably do it just to get in front of the camera for the thrill of it :-) but receiving some sort of compensation would be a bonus.
  • yasmin.fontana.79 2013/12/05 22:23:48

    Absolutely yes! I'm in for sure! All I am looking for now is the experience! I don't really care about the money! It would be great!

    But if provided travel, lodging and meals I might reconsider.

    Having worked in that capacity on projects great and minor, plus Indy film, the first time is "cool"....until the novelty and "high" wear off for the more rational among us, with the exception of those intrepid individuals proceeding, bitten by lime lights who, like camp gypsies, are willing to risk a bohemian life in trade for small scraps (reads pay & no bennies), and a cool obituary in which you are offered (if you write your own) the consolation of stating that you worked on film _______ with________.

    Pirating at it's finest mate.

    I would do it for about $200.00 a day which is what I get paid to do that work in Canada on films and television shows.
  • oncamer... dlorette 2013/12/06 03:33:48
    I am sure you must be union. Because I can prove with documentation that the pay rate for a non-union Extra in British Columbia is $10.25 an hour CD. $1 Canadian Dollar = $0.94 USD.

    Wow, it is "Yes" by a landslide! I did extra work on TV shows, films, commercials, in sound stages, on-location at night, etc. It was a great way to become comfortable on set in these different environments, and it made it much easier when I finally started getting speaking roles!
  • golshid... oncamer... 2013/12/06 06:23:52
