    I would probably start by contacting the big studios.

    Maybe try craigslist, public ads, contact movie production companies, or talent agencies?

    Also contact the SF Film Office or check out their website. Usually they have listings for extra work. Craigslist is a good start since they have ads for extras all the time. Just remember that extra work should never be free. You can't use the footage for a reel or anything.

    A friend of mine recently did that. She said that it was NOT fun. She had to do the same thing over and over for 12 hours a day. It doesnt matter if it is hot, cold, rainy or anything. She said the food was horrible too and the crew treated the extras like shit.

    Let me guess, you sat around almost all day waiting and once your scene was up they did it 20 times?
