Covid-19 Production Support

We are dedicated to supporting productions across the UK during the Covid-19 pandemic to enable extras and supporting artists to return to set safely. As a casting agency, Uni-versal Extras is constantly reviewing the latest government legislation and advice, and working closely with the major UK film unions and bodies to ensure best practice.

As a part of our casting process we speak with all of the artistes we submit for consideration, which is one of the main reasons why we have the best turnout rates in the film and TV industries. These checks have been adapted to support safe casting in the current climate; they can also be individually tailored to your specific production's needs. Uni-versal Extras already use multi-channel communications with our artistes, meaning we have the infrastructure and tools in place to support additional checks and procedures in relation to Covid-19.

With these things in mind, please find a variety of documents and resources in the table below. We will continue to update these documents as recovery continues.
