Occasionally Asked Questions!


I'm a producer. My budget can't support a formal casting session. What other options are there?

Don't rule out a casting session just yet! Many clients have the ability to audition actors in their own studios, and just need our help to schedule the session. We can handle a casting session from soup-to-nuts, or just pieces of it. We're happy to explore that option with you. In addition, depending on exactly what you need for talent (how many roles, how much dialogue...), we can find talent through materials submissions, referrals from our agent partners, or ask talent to create a self-taped audition using your script. Nothing really compares to a live audition and giving talent direction in real time, but we do understand that time and budget don't always allow for that.


Do I have to attend the casting session?

Clients are ALWAYS welcome to attend casting sessions, but it's completely up to them. By the time we get to an actual session, we are pretty much in synch with what you are looking for, and we run the actors through a couple of reads so you can see their range. We can make the auditions available to you online, so that you can review each actor's performance and make your casting decisions.


Do you cast voice talent too?

Absolutely! Typically with such a project, we'll solicit voice samples and forward them along to the client. Oftentimes, the client will supply a script, and we'll ask the talent to create an audition clip. That way, the client can hear *their* words and better gauge the effectiveness of the talent's delivery before making a casting decision.


Yeah, but... Why do I *need* to hire actors for my project? Can't I just use friends and family?

Glad you asked that question! We were interviewed on this very subject! See the following video for our answer: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mlhl17GYkss
