  Life as a Movie Extra  Ordinary people have always been attracted to the world of movies and movie stars. One way to get closer to this world is to become a movie extra. Although you have seen movie extras, you may not have paid attention to them. Extras are the people seated at tables in a restaurant while the two main actors are in conversation. They are the guests at the wedding of the main characters. They are the people crossing the street while “the bad guy" is being chased by the police. Extras don’t normally speak any lines, but they help make the scenes look real1.  Being a movie extra might seem like a lot of fun. You get to see what life is like behind the scenes. But don’t forget that being an extra is really a job, and it’s mostly about doing nothing. First-time extras are often shocked to learn how slow the process of movie making is. In a finished movie, the action may move quickly. But it can sometimes take a whole day to shoot a scene that appears for just a few minutes on the screen.  The main requirement for being an extra is the ability to wait. You may report to work at 5 or 6 a. m.,and then you wait until the director is ready for your scene. This could take several hours. Then there may be technical problems, and you have to wait some more. After the director says “action”and you do the first “take”,you may have to do it again if he or she is not satisfied with the scene. In fact, you may have to do the same scene over and over again. You could be on the set for hours, sometimes waiting outdoors in very hot or cold weather.2 You may not be finished until 11 p. m. or midnight. The pay isn’t good, either — often only a little bit above minimum wage. And you must pay the agent who gets you the job a commission of about 10 percent.  So who would want to be a movie extra? In spite of the long hours and low pay, many people still apply for the job. Some people truly enjoy the work. They like being on a movie set, and they enjoy the companionship of their fellow extras. Most of them have flexible schedules, which allow them to be available.3They may be students, waiters, homemakers, retired people, or unemployed actors. Some unemployed actors hope the work will help them get real acting jobs, but it doesn’t happen often. Most people in the movie industry make a sharp distinction between extras and actors, so extras are not usually considered for large parts.  The next time you see a movie,don’t just watch the stars. Take a closer look at the people in the background, and ask yourself : Who are they? Why are they there? What else do they do in life? Maybe there is someone in the crowd who is just like you.  词汇:  movie extra群众演员 chase追捕 shoot拍摄  action (导演指令)开拍 commission 佣金  注释:  1.Extras don’t normally speak any lines, but they help make the scenes look real.:虽然群众演员通常没有台词,但他们的存在使整个场景更加逼真。  2.You could be on the set for hours,sometimes waiting outdoors in very hot or cold weather.:在拍摄现场,你可能一演就是几个小时,有时还要一直待在很热或很冷的环境中。on the set:在拍摄现场。  3.Most of them have flexible schedules, which allow them to be available.:这些人中大部分都是时间比较灵活的人,这样他们就能腾出时间来演戏。 本文链接:http://www.kaozc.com/kaoshi-934-128300-1.html
