About the Event
Actors Access is widely viewed as the #1 casting site used by actors to secure auditions and
book work- IF you know what you’re doing.
For example, did you know that those with footage on their profile get their submission moved to the top of the stack? With an average of over 500 submissions for any given role, that’s a huge advantage.
Even without a demo reel you can still make yourself more marketable by creating a Slate Shot. This seven-second clip, which actors attach to their profile, is simply a video extension of their headshot.
With all of this in mind, The Audition Room and Everything Cinema Productions are teaming up to bring you a weekend tutorial on how to use, and get the most out of Actors Access and other casting sites. It will be an event filled with valuable tips, tricks, AND professionally produced Slate Shots for all who sign up!
