Got my check for working as an extra for HBO’s Treme. It seems the going rate for this kind of work around here is $7.25/hour for a non-union extra like me. Eight hours of that plus four hours at time and a half equals $101.50; after taxes, I got $95.77.

Even union extras don’t make much. As a non-union extra, you’re basically slave labor.

Did they cater your lunch, or give you money for a walk-away?
They fed us breakfast and lunch on site. The breakfast was better but neither was a stunning culinary experience. They did have some surprisingly good coffee though…
Good coffee isn’t a given, so you lucked out. Maybe it’s a N.O. thing.
