You can search through all of our current casting calls on the Casting Calls page. We've got numerous filters you can use to narrow down your search for castings that suit your look, skill set, and the exact type of work you're looking for!
Finding Casting Calls
Log into your account and navigate to the Jobs page on the top navigation banner of the website. This is labeled "Find Jobs" on Backstage and labeled as "Jobs & Auditions" on StarNow.
Once you come to this page, you can view all the current castings on the site! On the top of the page are the filters you can use to narrow down your search.
The Search Filters are a great tool for you to search for job opportunities around your location, for different production types, for union or non union projects and more! The most popular search filters will appear at the top. These are: Job Type, Gender, Age Range, Location, Compensation, and Production Type, but more search filters can be revealed by clicking on the ‘More Filters' button highlighted in the image below.
Once clicked, the filters panel will expand to add a lot more filters to your searches.
You can use the Skills filter to search casting calls for roles requiring specific talents and skills that you may possess. You can perform a general keyword search to find a variety of casting calls related to the terms you enter into the field. You can also do an exact keyword search by including quotes around the word or phrases you want to search for, which will narrow down your results even further.
After choosing all of your filters you have two options: you can either click 'Save Search' so you can come back to it again later, or just click 'Search' and your results will populate below.
As mentioned above, you can click the 'Save Search' button so you can come back to it at a later date and also get notifications when new castings are posted that match your search.
