ARTIST SUPPORT

The Next Level Grant Program provides support and funding for local directors and producers to take their projects to the next level. With the passing of SB5001, the Utah Film Commission’s available funding for sponsorships and grants was reduced. We are reevaluating the program and hope to be able to reinstate the program in the future. Please complete our production inquiry form for additional assistance.

BACKGROUND WORK

As a background actor or “extra”, you can experience for yourself what life is like on set. Check out our current productions, to see if there’s any extra work available with Utah productions. Another great resource are the many Facebook groups where the local film industry will post about productions they are working on. You can also contact companies listed in the Utah Film Directory that specialize in extras casting or talent agencies.
