PS. I have disabled registration to the BP Gallery, because there are too many fake accounts. If you desire an account, simply contact me and I will set you up.

I have also recoded the entire BP Media Archive. I myself find it much easier to navigate now, and to update. I will make sure to add lots of videos soon, that are lacking. If you want to contribute content to SimplyBrad.com, you are more than welcome to :)

War Machine: An Extra’s Perspective

A fascinating firsthand account of working as an extra for Netflix’s War Machine feature film starring Brad Pitt and Tilda Swinton.

The Quiet Buzz of Excitement

It is a crisp, sunny October morning in a leafy square in the heart of London. A large marquee is filled with around 300 people helping themselves to coffee and Danish pastries. There is a quiet buzz of conversation. Some of the crowd are chatting, some reading books or knitting. The majority are soberly dressed in suits while the rest are, slightly disconcertingly, kitted in military fatigues.

Suddenly, a runner appears at the entrance and calls out clearly – “Can we have all our German speakers now please?” The essential nature of the background artiste’s job is to hang about for ages and then “MOVE, MOVE, MOVE!”
