DEADLINE 11/16 @12p
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.
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)
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.
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.
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.
