A NOTE FROM CASTING
When a production calls me and they're looking for non-actors, but instead real people, I've found those people on construction sites, shopping malls, homeless shelters, and I've stopped families on the streets. The question always gets asked, "What are you looking for?" and I always answer, "Someone like you!" From feature films like Terrence Malick's To The Wonder to commercials for construction companies, we'll go anywhere to find the right person.
If you're interested in being considered for films, commercials, print, and so much more, sign up with us and we'll give you a call when a project comes knocking for Real People.
We're excited to work with you!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What kinds of people are you looking for?
All kinds of people are requested when our clients don't want actors. We have cast a little bit of everything so all walks of life (age, body type, sex, ethnicity) are welcome.
Does this mean you represent me now?
How much money will I make?
The amount of money you make depends on a lot of things. For smaller non-union commercials you could make a few hundred dollars. For bigger, national commercials you could make tens of thousands.
How much time in advance will I get?
This industry moves really quickly, which means we give you as much of a heads up as we can, but sometimes that's not very much.
How does this work?
When you sign up, you will automatically be added to our database. We do not ever sell your information, we only use it to call you when we have projects you're a good fit for.
I'm an actor. Can I apply as a real person?
We know you're a real person AND and actor, but please do not sign up for this list. For too many reasons to count, it's separated for a reason and we promise you it is better if you only apply for projects through your agent.
