Join Cut Above in Los Angeles

WELCOME to Cut Above Casting Services!

“Cut Above” Casting Services is a very aggressive EXTRAS booking service looking for non-union clients that are bookable, reliable, and ready to work. A booking service is the liaison between the casting director and the talent. Although we work very hard for our clients, submitting you on productions, a booking service can not guarantee work. We work very closely with over 30 different casting directors, including Central Casting, assisting them in film, television, commercial print/ background and audience work. We try and take the leg work out of it for you, by giving us the opportunity to submit you on many productions.

Every booking service has a monthy service fee, that is paid in full & upfront, providing you will our services.

We also offer an AMAZING website, networking parties, photograhers, open call auditions, industry tools and referrals, all designed, at no additional cost, to help you advance your career!

Basically, there are three ways to get booked on a production.

  1. Be involved in our social network: CAC hotline, Facebook & Blog Spot!
  2. Keep yourself active on our availability list that goes out daily to all our casting directors.
  3. Be available by phone, e-mail or text, as rush calls can come in at anytime.

After you are booked you will receive an e-mail with all of your details regarding that production.

You do not have to audition to do extra work, the photo submission is in essence the audition to the casting director.

The five main things that we ask of you are:

  • Show up on time
  • Have a positive attitude
  • Follow some really easy directions
  • Listen to our hotline weekly
  • Show up on time

Non-union scale for extra work is as follows (this is THE scale, not OUR scale):

  • 1-8 hours = $13.25    $106/8 hours
  • 9-12= $19.75  per hour
  • After 12th hour it is double time: $26.50 per hour

** Of course there are bumps and upgrades, but they are only possible if you are on the set. In addition, we often work on non-union productions that pay a much higher rate. So you really never know, you just need to be on set.

Films are averaging about 10-13 hours a day, but each production is in charge of when to let you go. THEY WILL NOT LET YOU LEAVE EARLY! Although, every once in awhile the do wrap early.

Just so you know, ALL calling services charge, in case extra work is new for you. Most services range from $50.00 - $80.00, with registration fees.


All service fee packages must be paid upfront, in full.

We offer 3, 6 and 12 month plans to help bring down your cost.
