Registration & Billing

Why should I register for a personal account with Casting Networks?
Personal accounts are a valuable career tool for the established actor, as well as the beginning actor alike. A personal account allows you to view and submit yourself to Casting Billboard™ projects posted by professional Casting Directors and Independent Filmmakers. You’ll also automatically be part of our Talent Scout™ program, in which Agents have access to your profile when they are searching for new clients.  In addition, you can be searchable by Casting Directors, 24 hours a day, which means they have the ability to contact you.  Free Mailing Labels, Schools, Coaches and Demo Reel Production Directories, a comprehensive listing of Photographers and free sides are also included. As an established actor seeking new representation, you can create personal accounts that will be automatically enrolled in the Talent Scout™ program.  You can choose what type of representation you are looking for, and make your profile available to those Agents. Also included in your fee is admission to our monthly Industry Networking Mixers and monthly informational Inside the Industry Seminars. The Industry Mixers feature complimentary drinks and the Seminar guests are working Industry Professionals – usually top Casting Directors. You’ll also save on headshot reproductions and mass mailings, since you will be able to email your headshot and resume anywhere in the world.

Simply click FORGOT USERNAME/PASSWORD under Member Login on the Welcome page and select the option that best fits you. On the next page, enter your username and a link to reset your password will be emailed to you.

My Photos

What's the difference between a main photo and additional photos?
The Main photo is the picture most closely associated with your profile. This is the photo that will appear first when you are submitted or searched in the system. Additional photos can be viewed from within your profile. These are used to show different looks to Casting Directors and Agents. You also have the ability to choose which one will be the Main photo each time you submit yourself for a project through Casting Billboard™, so that you can be more specific to the role that is being cast.

My Resume

I've entered my information, why can't I see my resume?

There could be two reasons that you are unable to see your resume.   1. Adding skills is not the same thing as creating your resume. This is additional information for you to enter that may not be found on your resume, that you would like a Casting Director to know.

Skills

2. Your Agent has you listed as having a model profile, which means your resume does not appear. Please read the next question to see how to enter or update information on your resume.

My Audition Confirmations

How will my agent get my audition confirmation?
