If you're looking for movie casting calls, one great new way to get yourself seen is to post yourself online with a profile representing you featuring photos and a brief description of yourself and your talents. Online services provide your photo and profile for Casting Directors conducting casting calls for movies, TV, singing dancing, and fashion. Agents/managers in your area will call you back if they are impressed with your picture and interested in auditioning you.
Here are some tips to prepare you for movie casting calls. If you have a chance, read the script first, or see if it was adapted from a book or play which you can get a hold of. If none of these are available, many new films are re-makes and you may be able to find a version of the original at your local video store. Before doing any movie casting calls, do some basic reading and research on the filmmaker and on the era in which the story takes place. Ask yourself and answer these questions about your role. Who am I? Where am I? What do I want? Visualize your character's physical appearance. Fill in your character's activities not provided in the text. (Where does she go? What was she doing before entering this stage of her life?)
Especially with movie casting calls with a large cast, you only have one chance to capture their interest. Professional photos are good, but not always necessary. Tastefully shot digital photos can also work. You may choose to work with several agents, representing different aspects of your career (i.e., one agent for movie casting calls, one for commercial work, another for print work).
