General On-Camera Talent

(Get in my database to be notified of roles that may be a good fit for you. We don't send any spam or give/sell your info)

What to Know:
You do not need to have professional acting or modeling experience to apply. Nor do you need to have expensive professional headshots.
 
What you do NEED is a professional demeanor, a quick response time, a positive attitude and excellent followthrough.
 
If you are new to production you should know this can be fast moving or it can be "hurry up and wait", so being flexible and understanding is the best way to come into this business and have longevity here.  
 
PHOTOS: 
  • Always send CURRENT photos, meaning, the same hair color and style and for men the same facial hair that you would show up to set with. If you wear wigs, change up your cut/color often, etc then make sure you are sending photos that represent the most current you. 
  • Send one headshot smiling (show the pearly whites)
  • Send 2-3 lifestyle full-length photos in different outfits, for example casual (jeans and t-shirt, athletic wear and business casual or date night attire) 
PRO TIPS:
  • DO NOT send photos wearing sunglasses or hats.
  • Do not apply filters, skin touch ups/blurring or use black and white photos.
  • Simple naturally lit photos that represent the day-to-day, put-together version of you are perfect.
  • We typically want to see you more natural and not over glammed up. This especially applies to children who are being submitted. Please do not send in pageant-style photos - we want kids to look like kids. 
VIDEOS: 
Not all roles will require speaking, but if you are applying for a speaking role you will need to do a self-taped audition. This is typically 30-60 seconds with your name, age, occupation, an answer or description of whatever topic the casting producer may request or something interesting about yourself. 
 PRO TIPS: 
  • If your casting requires a video submission BE YOURSELF. Do not write a script and read from it. We are looking for people who can speak from the heart and head as if talking to a friend (unless otherwise directed) not reading from a piece of paper. 
  • Do NOT make your tape long-winded. We have a lot of people to get through and if we think you cannot be concise and respect people's time you may not get chosen because they won't want super long-winded people on set to slow production down. 
Why is booking a paid commercial through Briana great?
1. You earn more than you would if signing with an agency. You do not pay a 10-20% agency commission. the rate that is listed is your full take-home pay! 
2. You will feel prepared. I will make sure you have all the details and are prepared for your shoot. I handle all invoicing on your behalf, so your focus is showing up on time, prepared and doing your best on the day of the shoot. 
3. You will only be working with production companies I have had positive and professional experiences with. We do not list castings from unfamiliar sources. I have been in TV production in the Tampa Bay, FL area since 2010. 
4. I am on your side.I am focused on you having a positive experience, if there are any issues that arise (although rare) you come to me and I will be your advocate. 
5. Increase your odds. Production companies and directors come to me to find talent. They come to me looking for fresh faces instead of always seeing repeats from the talent agencies. I intentionally pitch a very select pool of candidates that really get noticed by producers and your chances of booking go up. 
6. You get paid faster! Industry-standard is to pay NET 30, meaning you receive a check 30-days from the invoice date. I submit your invocie the day you show up to set. You will be paid directly from the production company. If you were to book through another agency, they would be paid in 30 days then you would eentually receive a check from your agent... which can be upawards of 45-90 days in many cases.  
LOYALTY & HONESTY CLAUSE: 
I do require that if you book a job through me initially, that if you are then contacted to book another job from that same producer or client that you refer them back to me for your booking.
 
They are usually good about coming directly to me to rebook talent, but on the off-chance, they come directly to you, please refer them to me immediately.
 
Otherwise, you will be responsible for paying my referral fee out of your earnings and you will not be submitted for future castings with me again, this is fair and this is business.  By submitting to ANY of my castings you agree to this clause.
