Lights! Camera! Action! The shooting season has begun, and a number of Limelite artistes have been at the centre of the action.

Clive, Daniel and Inge were featured in a truly weird shoot for X-Box. To dramatize the proposition that Microsoft's new gaming consul has better sound and better visuals than the Sony Playstation, the creative team of Bartle Bogle Hegarty -- one of London's leading ad agencies -- came up with the concept of grafting extra eyes and ears onto the actors' heads and bodies of! Ear-y stuff!

Other international commercials Limelite artistes have appeared in recently are Barclay Card for the UK, Tang for the People's Republic of China and the Gulf Coast Countries, and Dewars Whiskey for Spain.

More good news is that our online database is now fully functional. With a sophisticated search engine and a unique function that allows registered users to create, edit and email shortlists of artistes, the site will make the whole process of finding and approving talent much quicker and easier. As far as we know, this will also make it a world-first!

Frequently Asked Questions

3. How much can I make as a Featured Extra?

This is where it starts getting much more interesting! Featured Extras earn between R1 000 and R2 500 per day (before tax and agency commission). This is called your Performance Fee.

However, if you are featured in a TV commercial, you will also receive a Usage Fee. This will vary depending on which country the commercial is shown in. If it is shown in South Africa for instance, your Usage Fee for a year will be 100% of your Performance Fee. In other words, if your Performance Fee is R1 500, you will receive another R1 500 for the first year of flighting. The usage fee for the USA is 600%, and for a 'Worldwide Buy-out', it leaps to 2 000%!

Please note that all these figures exclude income tax and agency commission.
