Stand-In Central is your resource for standing in on film and television productions.
At Stand-In Central we give you an overview of the job and share what you might expect if you’ve just been hired as a stand-in for a film or TV show. Home of The Stand-In Handbook, the guidance here at Stand-In Central offers a solid foundation in how to be an excellent and effective stand-in.
- First, read over What Is a Stand-In? for a basic overview of the job, the routine, your responsibilities, and the terminology you’ll hear on set.
- Second, read and subscribe to our Tips & Tricks Blog, updated weekly with great stories, lessons, humor, and advice for being a really great stand-in.
- Third, review the Gear we recommend for doing the job and order what you need.
- Lastly, if you have any questions, Ask Stand-In Central. Our volunteer contributors (all professional stand-ins) may answer your question in a future blog posting!
