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.
