#83 Get More Auditions With These CastingAbout & Actors Access Insider Secrets – Part One

• 37 min

I’m gonna guess you have an Actors Access/Breakdown Express profile so Casting Directors can find you. And even though the site has *some* free functionality, I’m also gonna guess that you plunk down $68/year (plus any other fees) so you can host your video files and get access to the best auditions out there. YOU AND 1.3 MILLION OTHER ACTORS USE ACTORS ACCESS. I’m sharing that BIG number so you make it a priority to listen to this episode of Brian Breaks Character. Today’s guests are Blair Hickey and Brian Wold, the Co-Founders of CastingAbout and Consultants for Breakdown Services… I locked them in a Zoom room and forced them to tell me ALLLLLL THE INSIDER SECRETS of how actors can make themselves unforgettable on Actors Access. And look, you may have heard from them before… but I’m gonna guess that was before ‘the panorama’ and before 94% of your auditions were self-tapes. So this is brand-new intel that will actually move the dial on getting more auditions in the new normal.  HERE ARE THE TOP 5 INSIDER TAKEAWAYS The latest developments regarding virtual auditions and online casting. The realities of how casting directors receive and review submissions (and why some STAND OUT more than others). How to avoid the most common mistakes actors (and sometimes agents) make when submitting. How to turn your online submissions into AUDITIONS. Strategies to create and maintain strong working relationships with the casting community even online. Brian Wold has over 3 decades of experience in public relations, marketing and business communications. Blair Hickey has been a working actor for almost 30 years (The Big Bang Theory, NCIS: LA, Heroes). Combining their skills and expertise, Blair and Brian created CastingAbout, the online casting and production guide for professional actors. In 2009, CastingAbout was acquired by Breakdown Services, where both continue to work as consultants. Thank you for tuning in to this episode of Brian Breaks Character!
