How do you submit to an online workshop?

Each Casting Director and Agent will fill out a profile. They will specify the types of actors they would like to see (ex:SAG or Non Union or all) The Actor will be able to search Casting Directors by show and/or film, specific category (ex: comedy, drama, indie) , office or by specific requirements (ex:SAG or non union). We ask that everyone be as specific as possible. And both the Casting People, Agents and Actors will be able to change their profiles as new projects arise.

How do you search for Casting Director Workshops?

The actor will be able to search by Show, name of casting person, type of project (ex. film, indie film, commercial) or by specifics (ex. SAG ONLY). Once they have selected a suitable Casting Director or Agent to workshop with they will pay the workshop fee ($15 for members) and enter that persons profile. Then the actor can send their Demo or Performance Reel for Evaluation!

* a demo reel can be any pre taped performance
* a performance reel can be a taped monologue or scene with reader off camera. it can be a scene of your choice or one a casting director posts on their profile!

Some of the casting directors profiles will have a selection of scenes (uploaded by the CD) that the actor can read through. Once the scene is selected the actor can take as long as he or she likes to work on the scene. Once the actor is ready they can do 1 of 2 things. Tape the scene them selves w/ a reader that is off camera and upload it to our site. Or the actor can come to our Los Angeles Location and have it taped with one of TheActorsSource.com's team members. Please contact TheActorsSource.com for pricing and DATES or email Michael at rosygreyglasses@gmail.com.

Once your scene is uploaded you can choose to send your scene w/ redirect or with out. Either way you will receive an evaluation from each casting director. However if you would like the opportunity to be redirected there will be an added workshop fee of $7.50.

Again, the actor can also choose to send their Demo Reel only to Casting People and Agents who except those. You will receive an evaluation on your demo reel as part of the online workshop.

How do you search for Agent Workshops?

The Commercial Agents will be putting up Commercial Copy for the actors to choose from. Or the actors can send a Demo Reel. Their Workshops will run the same way that the Casting Director Workshops Run.

The Theatrical Agents will be seeing demo reels or you can send a scene that you used for one of the Casting Director Workshops. Either way these workshops will run the same way as the Casting Director Workshops.

Submissions for all workshops will include your TheActorsSource.com picture, resume, profile and scene, commercial copy or demo reel. All Evaluations and redirects will be sent to your TheActorsSource.com profile.

All workshop tapes will be saved in your profile under the Casting Directors Name or Agents Name.

Will I become a Star if I use ASC?

ASC is a website that should be used to learn the business. The site is designed so you can learn how to be a better actor and how to present your selves in a marketable way to industry professionals. You can use the site to ask questions, learn how to improve your demo reels or performances and to network with casting Directors, Agents and Managers. ASC can not make you a Star. No site or school can do this. We can only help you refine your craft!

How long does it take for the industry Pros to do my workshops?

ASC contacts all of our teachers twice a week. Although most teachers on the site do their workshops once a week we ask that you be patient. We do not put a time limit on our teachers because we want them to gibe all workshops their undivided attention. Because of the nature of their jobs some days get busier then others therefore sometimes the workshops can take up to a month to complete.

What if the industry pro never completes my workshop?

In the event that one of our teachers leaves the business or no longer wishes to complete workshops while you have a workshop pending. We will give you a credit towards any other workshop you wish.
