HOURS:  These are day time shoots but we never know the exact start time until the evening before each shoot day.  Shoot days typically last up to 10 hours or more, with lunch provided.  You must be available all day without conflict, from very early morning, i.e. 6 or 7 am to evening hours.

RATES:  Non Union Extras are paid minimum wage based on city location.  Oakland min. wage is $8.00/hr and the pay rate is $64.00 for 8hrs plus overtime at time and ½.  San Francisco min. wage is $9.79/hr and applies for Treasure Island; payment is $78.32 for up to 8 hours plus overtime at time and ½.  These standard TV extra rates are paid by production, not Beau Bonneau Casting.
