Unless you've been hiding under a rock for the last few weeks, you will more than likely have heard of Casting Networks Incorporated - a brand new casting service for UK actors.
Now before you say, "oh, not another one...", Casting Networks is actually one of the largest casting solutions on the planet, yet until very recently it's only been available to actors overseas.
The UK side of Casting Networks was launched around 6 months ago, and already has thousands of actors registered to the service.
So what makes this service different to Spotlight, Casting Call Pro, etc?
Well let us tell you!
There is ONE HUGE difference with Casting Networks and it's something you should all be aware of.
Casting Networks does not only supply the regular casting service that you've come to expect from other available solutions, it also supplies a one stop software solution for casting directors to send out their casting briefs, call those artistes they want to see, record and upload their casting sessions for clients, and build a custom database of artistes that they would like to use in projects going forward.
The fact that Casting Networks is making the jobs of UK casting directors far easier is the EXACT reason you NEED to know about it, and why you should get registered with them.
The Act On This team is in regular contact with many of the UK's top casting directors, and we are seeing Casting Networks software being adopted by those who are casting some of the biggest TV projects in the UK.
For that very reason, we met with Casting Networks this week, and have arranged to record a podcast with them, giving you the full low down on what you can expect from the service.
We'll be discussing the advantages of Casting Networks, what the service currently offers UK actors, how much the service will cost, as well as the team's plans for the rest of 2012 and beyond!
(for a limited time, UK actors can sign up to the service for FREE! Don't hang around!)
Maybe you're already signed up to Casting Networks, maybe this is the first you have heard of them - get involved with the podcast!
