How do I become an Extra in a Zombie Movie?

I do not want a career as an extra or to be anything else other than a zombie in a zombie movie, so joining an agency seems like a waste of time and money. I don't want a big part or an amazing length of screen time. I just want to stumble around a bit moaning "braaaains" and perhaps have some prosthetic zombie nastiness. Does anyone know how I can achieve my ambition of being an extra in a zombie movie??

    Last year there was a guy who was making a student film in Hitchin Hertfordshire and he needed loads of extras to be Zombies and what he did was put an advert in one of the local papers and the college magazine. He needed about 30 extras and over 2000 people turned up. So my advice would be to contact your local college for details of their media studies or film classes and see if any budding director is planning on making a zombie film!

    If you don't end up finding a film, when August rolls around look up the high end haunted houses in your area and apply for a seasonal position. The pay is crap, but it can be a lot of fun. If there is a "Haunted Hotel" branch in your city I know they use zombies every year.

    Dont get washed or do your makeup in the morning and go to a film studio and tell them you want to be a zombie and they will hire you straight away
