3. Add All The Details!

Profile Specifics:

Gender, Ethnicity, Age, Location, etc. The attributes in this section are definitely basic, but absolutey essential. Forgetting to fill out even one could prevent you from being included in an initial line up.

Special Talents:

A lot of us can deliver a snappy line on the spot, but unique skills really make a talented actor stand out from the rest of the crowd. Whether it's juggling, pole vaulting, bartending, or card tricks; it's a good idea to comb through our bank of skills and include any that fit your background. These skills will help dictate which searches you will be featured in when directors are filling roles!

Size Information:

Some roles are limited by sizing and some productions are only looking for certain types. With that in mind make sure you fill out the size options and be as honest as possible, there is only one you! Our sizing section is designed to be gender neutral - so know that the sizing will show up to casting directors exactly as you set it.

Profile Media:

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand why profiles with multiple photos and videos perform better than those with very little. Take a moment to curate a collection that shows you at your best. High resolution photos and videos that have some personality are the way to go.
