I did a stint as a teenager. It was to be part of a crowd scene at the old Arms Park (National Stadium) for some Egg film and sit in the Grandstand all day. Cheering when prompted and being told to watch someone from the crew running along the pitch so it looked like we were following the action of whatever the film was showing. We were there all day, with a regimented lunch break and got paid pretty well. Boring as fuck mind. And it was bastard freezing mun. I later found the film I 'starred' in (along with about 1000 others) and the clips we were in amounted to about 15 seconds in total! The money in TV and film must be incredible.
