800Casting is a complete solution for talent to showcase their work whether or not they are represented by an agent.
With one of the most detailed driven, high spec functions in any one software, 800Casting removes the need to forget or lose information because everything you need for your career can be in one place, securely.
In addition to the standard expected features of a software like this one, we have user specific features that are key for any aspiring/professionally experienced talent wanting to stay organized, punctual and professional at all time while monitoring their career development.
On any given day, your agent can electronically submit your 800Casting multi-media profile to ANYONE, not just casting directors. Think of it this way, through the 800 interface you are gaining exposure to ALL CLIENTS… casting directors, filmmakers, production companies, studios, Ad agencies, music producers, photographers and all other entertainment professionals. In most instances, bookings by our network agencies are a direct result of the agent submitting your 800Casting profile in a professional format for client review. No wonder why agents request that their talent apply for membership.
If your profile is not linked to a network agency or manager (see FAQ No. 32), you are considered to be an "unrepresented talent." Unrepresented talent automatically becomes part of our “Talent Scout” database, which is searchable by network agents who want to expand their rosters.
As a member of 800Casting, your multimedia profile is available to directors,
casting directors, photographers, and other industry professionals on a daily basis.
You are able to upload 10 images, 10 video clips and 10 voice-over files as well
as print and email your resume in a professional and acceptable format.
Membership includes AUDITION 800 mobile app which provides three free options:
(1) BREAKDOWNS - review and submit for auditions
(2) AUDITION INVITATIONS - provide auditions by invitation
(3) AUDITION EXPRESS - provide streaming video auditions for any client, in or out of network.
