When you stay current, you stand a better chance of getting noticed. As an agent working in the industry for many years, over 50 to be exact, it can become very frustrating on our end when talent do not upload resumes and update their photos. Photos must be professional and current at all times. Your measurements and resume need to be current too. It is especially important for child talent to keep their profiles current as they grow and change so quickly!
PHOTOS MUST BE AGENCY APPROVED otherwise you can ruin your chances of being submitted or chosen with the wrong photo.
Many auditions are sent to talent now by self tape audition. It is very frustrating on an agents part, when talent do not submit self tapes! Self tapes are great, you can do it from your own home. Failure to submit self tapes when asked can result in not being submitted or requested for auditions, unless a good reason is given.
Casting directors and clients take time to choose you to audition, please make the effort.

Actors Access allows two free images, you can always upload a few more, they do charge you approximately $10.00 for an extra image it is worth it. If you have a voice demo, or film demo, please upload it.
We are extremely busy trying to get you work and submit you on projects.
Failure on the talents part to keep photos updated, current, and add to your resume, can result in not getting auditions and removal from the roster. REMEMBER the more you provide us with the more auditions you are likely to get!
It is mandatory to have a current ACTORS ACCESS account. Your account must be up to date with your resume including skills, current sizes, modeling and acting related projects that you have done. If you do not have one, please create one. Make sure that you include your agency representation to your profile.
Your agent submits you on our side of actors access to casting, there is no need to remind us to submit you. Unless there is a specialty skill that you have that is not mentioned on your profile, then feel free to email your agent.
We represent many talent and it takes time out of our day on submissions when we constantly have to remind talent to update their profiles. Remember you are self employed and it is YOUR responsibility to keep your profiles updated on Actors Access as well as 800Casting. When it comes to special skills, it is important that you don’t add what you think you can do or what you would like to do. It must be a skill that you can actually do on a professional level.
