San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 1, 2010
Casting360, an innovative, new online resource that brings talent and casting directors together, makes its debut today. Launching with more than 100,000 talented experienced and amateur actors, models and entertainers in its database, Casting360 is a completely free industry resource created with actual feedback from accomplished casting directors, filmmakers and television network professionals, and designed to address their unique needs.
Casting360 offers the entertainment industry - including the reality television genre - a brand new way to connect with a larger, more diverse talent base than could ever be seen through traditional cattle calls and other sourcing methods from a time- and cost-efficient, easy-to-use website. Casting360’s comprehensive, streamlined interface for casting directors, The CD Zone, enables professionals to find exactly the talent they need quickly, by cross-referencing its vast database via a number of criteria, including geography, gender, ethnicity, age, appearance, training and special talents. Casting360’s database comprises great diversity, and is one of the largest available databases of “real people,” a must for reality TV and extras casting.
“We’re very excited to announce that as of our launch today, in just a matter of minutes, a casting director or filmmaker can post a casting call and, in a 24-hour period, have access to Casting360’s entire database of over 100,000 active portfolios and video reels, free of charge,” said John Williams, Creative Director at Casting360.
Casting 360’s turnkey process is totally secure and allows instant, direct contact with talent via encrypted mailboxes and telephone numbers, while also protecting the casting director’s privacy by providing an email box and forwarding. Casting directors may save their searches and talent portfolios, enabling them to refer to qualified talent and previous hires, send repeat searches, or keep an eye on someone they may find of interest for future projects.
Additionally, Casting360 offers its talent base the opportunity to take online video acting courses and seminars designed to help them excel in their field, as well as the acquainting them with the process of auditions, making them more professional and employable. The portfolios of those who have studied are noted in search results so casting directors can find them easily. For more information, please visit http://www.Casting360.com.
