Extra! Extra! How to Land A Part In Film

This month we’ll explore what it’s like to be in front of the camera and how to increase your chances of getting cast as an extra.

David J Gewertz received his BFA in motion picture production from Wright State University.1186861_10202493200504030_1460545814_n
His senior thesis film Over Drinks, was a winner at the 1996 Indiana Film Festival.

After graduating he moved to LA and found work in front of the camera as an actor and stand in for such stars as Jack Black and Jason Alexander. Between stand in gigs David also was a background actor on such films as The Wedding Singer, Old School, and Starship Troopers.

In 2008 David relocated back to Dayton, and has found work in casting and working with the background actors on Carol, I am Wrath and recently on the film Goat.
