Check this out

I first heard rumblings of Castingabout.com a few years ago from one of my actor friends who was subscribed to the site.  They were using it as a reference index to send out postcards and find out who was actively casting some of the new pilots that had been announced.  I thought it sounded interesting enough but at the time it seemed to me that there were other sites and places to get this info so I didn’t investigate any further.  But in November, while attending Actor Fest, I ran into the co-founders of Castingabout.com, Blair Hickey and Brian Wold.  They explained to me the philosophy behind their site and showed me everything that it could do.  I was impressed with what I saw, so I asked them to share their philosophy with our viewers here at Headshotcafe.com.  They did not disappoint.

Below is a three minute teaser of the interview with Blair and Brian.

If you would like to watch the entire interview. Here it is.

Enjoy.

As actors you have one opportunity to make a first impression. It is a lot like online dating. If you send out a picture that is great but doesn't look like you, your date (casting) is gonna be disappointed. You won't get a second chance. But if you are able to capture your personality and the strongest aspects of your talents in that one frame, you'll find that there are a lot of people out there looking for someone just like you. SO, this blog is dedicated to getting you more dates, or rather auditions. We leave your actual dating life up to you. With over 30 years of experience in the photography and headshot business, I will keep you posted on the business of acting with an emphasis on photos.
