Ten Reasons To Work With Guys & Dolls

As an Assistant Director or production company there’s a wide choice of casting agencies at your disposal, so why use Guys & Dolls?


1. Paperless accounting
Our unique e-Voucher system within Extras Manager also computes the correct current FAA rates of pay. In turn, this enables easy checking, instant payroll calculation and accurate accounting. It also sends artiste e-vouchers and summaries to both the artistes and your accounts department, and ensures payment processing is hassle-free. Just ask us for a demonstration.

2. Reduced queues on-set
Our unique Extras Manager also allows you check artistes on to, and off-set, at the click of a button. You can also check entire groups in and out together. This means no more big queues and saves immense time. Also, potentially, the work of a Crowd AD.

3. Vast range of faces, looks and skills
Whether you seek Vikings, folk with 1960s clobber and haircuts, larger noses, crazies from outer space, doubles, contortionists or singers, we can help. We also take fresh artiste professional photos regularly so you can be sure that what you see, is what you'll get.

4. Professional supporting artistes
The vast majority of our artistes are professional extras. Mainly trained actors, models, dancers, singers or musicians. They've seen it, done it and love and respect our profession. Being highly regarded, they are punctual, polite, fun to work with and are frequently asked back to set.

5. Dedicated and fast personal service
We're renowned for our dedicated personal support and responsiveness - usually in hours. Often in minutes. We're always available outside office hours for early or late calls or trouble at the mill.

6. Extra creativity
Our twenty years of experience spans feature films, television, commercials and photo shoots. We've also worked as ADs, with top production teams and appreciate the devil is in the detail. So we go the extra mile to understand your needs, and suggest ideas for great shots.

7. Customised look books
We recommend artistes to meet your brief. Via our unique Extras Manager service, we present ideas online or via pdf hard copy. This allows you to review and select the artistes you'd like to present to the director. Again you chose whether to share ideas online, by hard copy, or by printing and pasting on a board. Get in touch to ask for an Extras Manager demonstration.

8. DIY online selection and booking
Sometimes you or your director may wish to shortlist and select artistes yourself. You can do this via desktop PC, mobile phone or tablet search. Choose to search by age, gender, location, ethnicity, hair colour, languages, nationality, vital statistics or skills. The choice is yours.

9. DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checks and identity cards
All artistes are DBS checked within the last 18 months and legally verified to work in the UK. All are also issued with Guys & Dolls' photo ID cards. This helps us all sleep more soundly, and save on your security budget.

10. Crowd scene management
If you have a really big crowd scene we'll provide an on-set Crowd AD or marshall to help.
