A complete & accurate profile!

Make sure your profile completion is as close as possible to 100%! This will increase your chances.

As an international talent, it is essential to pay attention and correctly complete the following:

  • The current "Place of residence" so the producers and directors know where you are located.
  • “Ethnicity” & “Nationality” are other important details, make sure you have completed them.
  • "Spoken languages" : One of the main reasons for a producer or director to choose an international talent, aside from acting skills and look, is because of his language abilities - to speak in the required language with no foreign accent. Because of this, please complete this section accurately and please, no cheating!
  • All the details : sometimes even the smallest detail in your profile can bring you your dream job. Have you mentioned your height, eye colour, hair colour, which sports you play, which instruments you play and which foreign languages you speak? They could be exactly the details that producers are looking for!

Other details to pay attention to:

  • Wanted Jobs: Choose them correctly in order to receive the best proposals.
  • Experience: If you do have experience, it’s important to mention it! It will considerably increase your chances of being selected for some of the projects where it is required.
  • "Expected/Minimum required Budget": Your minimum budget requested for a shooting day - this will be visible only for the casting directors in charge of the projects or upon request. Just give us an idea about your minimum acceptable budget or your fees, as we don't want to bother you if the budget is under your expectations or don't want to miss the chance to collaborate just because we, the casting directors, don't think you'll accept the budget. Please note that setting a minimum budget will not adversely affect your potential earnings - you may well receive a higher daily rate than stated.
