Free casting rooms can be a lifesaver for indie filmmakers who are casting their projects on a budget. You get to save money on casting and apply your money to other aspects of production. You get access to a large database of actors to choose from, and in many cases get your videos automatically uploaded and archived.
In return, you’ll be asked to select a group of actors from a database to audition for your production. In most cases, this is a great offering that turns out to be a “win-win-win” for the casting studio, the filmmaker and the actor.
But are there times when a free casting room isn’t the ideal solution? Sure. For instance, if you’re holding a casting session where you want to spend a lot of time with each actor (10 minutes or more), then chances are, you’ll get backed up on your calendar if you’re required to audition up to 12 actors per hour. Also, if you’re conducting a combination of callbacks and auditions, then you’ll probably want a greater deal of autonomy during your casting session. Last, if you are casting a role that’s very specific- (i.e. 80 year old Asian actor), then it may be difficult to fulfill your requirement to invite actors from the casting studio’s database.
So when you need to rent a casting room- where do you go? Fortunately, Hollywood Casting and Film offers casting room rentals as well as free casting, and more info can be found here: www.hcandfstudios.space
