Imagine sitting at a cafe with your friends and suddenly you get a text message alert on your mobile phone that a new casting call opportunity is seeking background extras for a hit TV show has just been posted in your area. To your friends amazement, you fire up your laptop and apply to the casting call. Moments later, you receive another text alert that the casting director has just viewed your portfolio and wants you to attend the casting call. You politely excuse yourself from the table and say to your friends, "Excuse me, I'm needed on the set of "Prison Break".

Sound impossible? Well, it's happening and Talent6 is leading the way with instant casting call text alerts nationwide.

Here's how it works.
