You have taken your first step toward an exciting and rewarding new career. This comprehensive program was specifically designed to help aspiring, talented individuals like you break into the entertainment world. It will provide you with the essential knowledge and information required to successfully work in the entertainment industry. Whether you have very little knowledge of the industry or are an established model, actor, dancer, singer or background player looking for that big break, we feel like this guide is the most effective and easiest program in existence for launching your career. So, Let's get started!
(Set up your profile) First of all, set up your profile with accurate information about yourself, your skills, your background and experience. Casting Directors search for talent based on their profile information, such as, age, gender, location, height, weight and skills.
(Upload your photos) Upload clear, well-lit, close-up and medium photos of yourself. Do not use far away photos or photos with friends and family or pets. You do not need professional photos, but photos that clearly show what you look like. Remember, casting directors are looking for all looks and ages so just be yourself. If you need better photos, contact any one of the photographers on our site. The photographers on our site do not work for Casting360, but might be willing to photograph you at no charge to improve their profile.
(Submit to casting calls) The most important advice we can give you is to submit to as many casting calls as possible within your area. The most successful members are pro-active, persistent and never give up. They submit to casting calls just about every day and to a variety of casting calls just to get their feet wet and gain some experience. It's really a numbers game.
(Don't get discouraged) If you do not hear back from a casting director, don't be discouraged. Casting directors may contact you for future projects. Keep submitting to casting calls. You're next big break may be in that next casting call.
(Login often) Login often to check your messages. You don't want to miss any opportunities.
(Be aware) When going on a photo shoot, always bring someone with you and be sure to check references and profile of the photographer you want to work with. If something does not seem right about a casting director, photographer or casting call or they say that you must pay additional fee's to audition, please contact Casting360 Member Support.
(Be professional) When you do get work, be professional, be on time and check your ego at the door. A good impression goes a long way in this business and a bad attitude will get around.
Good Luck and Welcome to Casting360!
