Through my experience as a background actor, I have learned that the casting department is in charge of hiring extras/background actors. They usually post their casting calls via Facebook, talent search websites, and online databases. The Casting Department is in charge of securing call-times, communicating consistently with extras and their supervisors, handling paperwork (vouchers), communicating with set P.A's, wardrobe/hair and make-up departments.
Cooking/Catering is one of my strongest talents. Craft services is a job that I am confident I would be very helpful with. I enjoy putting together healthy and delicious meals and serving people. I have extensive knowledge on health and nutrition since I've closely with a nutritionist for over 7 years. The food industry has taught me how to service large groups, buying on a budget, and working under pressure in fast-paced environment.
This position has taught me to be highly-organized and self-motivated. I've always worked extremely well with computers because I completed about two years of computer programming in high school and a little over two years of computer information technology and applications in college. I'm very familiar with using Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Adobe) on basically any computer or program (Mac, Lenovo, HP, Microsoft). With this skill I think that I could be extremely helpful working with the casting department such as checking in extras, keeping them in holding, communicating information, or posting casting notices on Facebook or other social media sites.
