Beverley Hills Casting
Actors: here is what you need to know to increase your chances of being cast in one of the films for 2014. Note: Production Week starts Friday May 23, so you will want to develop relationships with producers now. One good way is to go and post on our Facebook and Twitter Accounts. Producers: Finding the right actors can be time consuming. With a limited amount of time during this type of speed filmmaking competition, you should consider using a professional casting agent to save time.
Beverly Hills Casting is offering their services at a special low rate to "168" teams. See description below.
For those who want or need to cast on their own, here is an alternative. Producers can sign up for casting rooms free of charge https://www.cazt.com/. Actor's can audition for free but they must be a Cazt member to look at their reels or to pass them on to other parties. Producers must sign up early these rooms go fast.
