Rent a Crowd for Video and Film Events!

Are you considering hiring a crowd of extras for a location shoot such as a music video? At Rent a Crowd, we work with production companies all over the UK, supplying extras and crowds for everything from period dramas to music videos.  So how does renting a crowd work?

We were approached recently by a live music agency as they needed to hire a crowd of extras for a video shoot. The service they offer is unique in many ways. The Rock and Strollers as a ‘roaming acoustic band’, attending all kinds of events. They provide a unique experience, roaming amongst guests, performing requests. Their repertoire extends across a range of music genres, from modern-day pop classics as well as up-to-date modern hits.

The project

The project was a fantastic one to be involved in! They were filming a video style shoot at Lost Society in Battersea. They wanted to rent a crowd of extras of 20 people with a gender split and aged between 20 and 35. There was no acting experience required as the extras were simply being asked to enjoy the music, something wasn’t hard to do.

Can we help with your music video or event?

Hiring a crowd, whether that’s 10 people or hundreds (or even thousands!), is very easy to do when to come to us. Here’s why:

  • Discreet – we know that sometimes, you may not want or need to people to now that you have hired a crowd, and that’s why our service is discreet and confidential.
