-Background actors will work in Zone A on this production and will not wear PPE while in front of the camera. In order to confirm whether background actors qualify for certain production protocols applicable to individuals fully vaccinated against COVID-19, “Staircase” (North Center Productions, Inc.) is asking for background actors to provide their vaccination status. Should producers elect to implement a mandatory vaccination policy in Zone A, background actors may be required to submit proof of vaccination status, such as a vaccination card.


Booking Policy:

**Please note, the production reserves the right to cancel any aspect of your booking (in whole or in part) at any time for any reason (including, without limitation, in connection with last minute production changes), regardless of whether you or the production has confirmed the applicable booking. If your booking is cancelled (either in whole or in part), you understand and agree that you are not entitled to any consideration in connection with such cancellation (including, without limitation, compensation, fees, reimbursement, expenses and/or other consideration).  Please make sure to check your email prior to arrival to the production location for any updates. If you have any questions, please email us at**


**For all extras that are booked, we would like to inform you that it is our policy to overbook extras to compensate for last minute cancellations affected by weather, traffic, and other unforeseen circumstances. The formula we use to derive at our booking levels, is carefully applied and as conservative as possible while still fulfilling our responsibility of ensuring the required number of extras for the producers. Therefore, a confirmation email does NOT guarantee placement.  Once production is at full count, additional extras will not be signed in and therefore, will not be compensated. Extras that are signed in by production are not employed by Hylton Casting and will be compensated by the production company.**
