Strictly Background

Strictly Background

DVD (Wide Screen)


In Hollywood, being just another face in the crowd can actually be a fairly lucrative career, and professional extras can make a pretty penny by simply blending into the background. Of course everyone loves a star, but in this documentary director Jason Connell explores the careers of ten background actors who help to provide those marquee names with a canvas on which they can truly shine. Is it possible to build an entire career in the far side of the frame? Connell provides insight into this and many other questions in a film that explores a subject rarely pondered by casual movie lovers.
