Unique Extras is New Zealand’s only talent agency devoted to getting people with a disability and those who consider themselves unique, on screen. One in five people are disabled yet people with disabilities are rarely seen in movies, on TV and in advertisements. Unique Extras wants to change that and, in so doing, improve attitudes and behaviours towards people with disabilities.
