What is a casting call?

What is an extra or background player?

How do I find casting calls in my area?

How do I submit to a casting call?

How to write a good submission message?

How to stand out from the crowd, and not have your submission thrown in the trash.

1. Avoid sending a blank submission with "I am interested". Take your time and make each submission seem that it took time and effort before you press Submit.

2. If you have any questions or concerns, address them in your submission. There is usually no such thing as a dumb question.

3. Do not submit to something you do not fit the description for. Casting directors don't have time to filter through thousands of submissions everyday, don't make their job more difficult.

4. Do not forget to attach photos, videos or any other material you are asked for in casting call description.

Example of a good submission message:


I saw your casting call for the new film {Name of the film} on Casting360 website, and I would like to be considered for the role of {Name of the character}. This definately sounds like an amazing project, and I felt that I connected personally with {something that is related to the project}. I strongly believe I would be great for this role because of my acting experience {highlight some experience in the past}.

Thank you,

{Your name}"

If you don't have experience in acting, just write why you feel you are good for this part, what skills you have.
