    Be An Extra!

    Appear in the film as an extra! We'll kit you out in some swish, authentic 1970s gear and have your hair and make–up done in a style befitting the period. You'll be credited as an extra with an appropriately humorous character name (which will also make it onto IMDb), and you'll be invited to the premiere with the cast and crew. Of course, you'll get a digital download of the film and soundtrack to keep. (Transport not included).

    Your very own cigarette advert!

    That's 50 twenty–packs, or the cost of a flight to South America where you could buy many more for much less. Extravagant, but not quite as extravagant as bringing yourself and a friend to a jazzy cocktail bar in London for your very own photoshoot... We'll kit you out in snazzy 70s outfits and get you done up in a style befitting the period. A professional photographer will take photos of you and your friend in comically suggestive poses and we'll create your very own Ralph Styles Ultra advert – printed in full colour on photographic paper and framed for your viewing pleasure. (Includes two framed copies, and no, being a smoker is not a prerequisite! The wonder that is Photoshop will take care of that...) You're also welcome to join us on set as an extra, and at the cast & crew screening. We'll throw in a Polo shirt too and of course you'll get a digital download of the film and soundtrack to keep. (Transport not included).
