Getting an actor website is an essential step in being a professional actor. Covid-19 transformed the
world of casting. Where auditions were once in-person in the early stages of production, now the 1st line
of auditions occur almost uniformly as remote opportunities. What’s more, as casting directors continue to
get flooded with great talent, only those organized, easy to find and making the best first impression are
getting call-backs and follow-up auditions.
This is because if you were a casting professional, would you work with actors that make your life easy by
having all of their casting profiles, headshots, reels and resume in one place? Or would you prefer actors
haphazardly emailing over attached headshots, Youtube hyperlinks of reels, attachments of a resume and a
bio and a phone number in the body of an email?
Unlike a casting profile such as Backstage, an actor website allows you to package your brand identity
specific to your look and control exactly how you want to be presented without the limitations of a
template nor the thousands of actor profiles beside yours demanding attention away from you. An actor
website is also a custom headquarters built to compliment your headshots, reels, resume, contact details,
social media, casting profiles and more! This makes it easier for industry professionals to access your
information, find, share and refer your portfolio to other professionals on any given project.
