The team at Casting Calls America recently surveyed casting directors about what was preventing them from contacting or booking actors.
Here were the top three reasons they didn’t contact talent who submitted:
1) Unprofessional headshot
2) No resume
3) No additional photos
Here are the top three reasons they didn’t book talent that submitted:
1) Not a quick enough response to email/phone call.
2) Talent weren’t available when the roles was auditioning/filming.
3) Unprofessional response in either writing (email) or phone.
So, be sure your headshot is on point, your resume is current, you have additional photos (including full body ones) in your profile, check your email/phone messages often, only submit to roles you are available for and always be professional.
And be sure to check out our amazing actors advice video series “Ask a Pro” with tips and advice from such amazing actors as Charles Baker (Skinny Pete on Breaking Bad) and Tim Russ (Tuvok on Star Trek: Voyager).
Best wishes and break legs!
