Essential for Talent Representatives and Managers

As more talent join Casting Networks with the new Essential membership, talent representatives will have more opportunities to connect with them via Talent Scout®.

Plus, all Casting Networks memberships now include swappable media, enhancing talents’ ability to continuously update photos and other media, ensuring their profiles remain fresh and engaging.

Talent can monitor media storage usage, including how much space each file uses, how much is used by different types of files, and the total amount of media storage used.

Any new media, including media you add as a talent representative, counts towards that membership’s allocated storage capacity. However, swapping media is simple – talent can just archive the files they no longer need to free up more space. Media is eligible for archiving 21 days after it is uploaded. Free members get 350 MB, Essential members get 1 GB and Premium members get 3.5 GB (currently unrestricted).

Essential for Casting Directors

With the addition of Essential to our membership options, more emerging, unrepresented and small-market talent will have the opportunity to submit for roles. So, if you’re eager for more submissions in order to cast the perfect performer, more talent will now be eligible to submit!

Keeping the Playing Field Level

As we launch this new membership, we want to remind everyone that no matter which membership talent chooses, that detail remains hidden from talent representatives and casting directors on Casting Networks. And when it comes to casting, every performer who submits or auditions gets the same shot, regardless of their membership type. We’re keeping it equal for everyone on our platform.

The Essential Membership is available now!
