The best thing about working at Extras Ireland is that no job is ever the same. We’ve worked on everything from TV to Film, Commercials and Events. Every job we work on is unique, but some definitely stand out among the crowd! Here are 5 of the most unique jobs we have assisted on, and if you need help with yours, simply get in touch.

Voice Recognition
This year we were fortunate enough to collaborate on a Voice Recognition project and some of our talented Voiceover Artists took part in guided voice recordings. The purpose of this project was to collect voice data in order to assist with developing speech recognition technology. This is something that our members wouldn’t have done before and they were super excited to get stuck in. They did a great job!

Zoom Santa
It’s safe to say that COVID put a lot of things on hold last year, but it could never stop Santa! We had the exciting job of sourcing the busy man himself for various Zoom meet and greets with all the wonderful boys and girls. Although it may not have been the same as meeting in person, you could definitely feel the magic through the screen!

Medical Shoot
Another interesting project we collaborated on was various instructional videos for patients attending hospital appointments. We had a few of our fabulous Actors portray the new COVID procedures that would be in place and what the patients would expect upon arrival to their appointment. It was really rewarding for us and our members to be able to assist on this one!

Food Campaign
A really fun job that we worked on recently was a commercial for a food company. Some of our Extras were required to have various vegetables thrown (gently!) at different parts of their body. The campaign was to promote plant based products. A really interesting one and the Extras had an absolute blast! Would you be brave enough?

Automobile Study
We have a large database of people – over 3000! We generally place performers in acting or modelling based projects but because we have such a large pool of people on our books, clients will reach out to us for alternative projects such as an automobile study we are currently working on. Our Members will be required to drive a simulated vehicle testing drowsiness while driving. Their talents are endless!

So, although every project we work on is an interesting one, these are just a small bunch of some of the most recent and unique projects we have collaborated on. Never a dull moment at Extras Ireland!
