Step 1:  Add a new client

  1. Log in to your personal home page and click on My clients.
  2. Click on the button called "Add new client".  On the page that appears, enter your client's details and click on "Add client".
  3. Your client's name will now appear on this page.

Step 2:  Upload photos

  1. On the same page as in Step 1.2 above, find your client and click on the "Edit" button below his / her name.
  2. Click on the "Photos" tab.
  3. Click on "Upload new photo" and upload your client's headshot photo from your computer.

  1. On the same page as in Step 1.2 above, find your client and click on the "Edit" button below his / her name.
  2. Click on the "Profile" tab, fill in your client's profile details and click on "Update profile".

Online profile page

By default, all online profiles will be publicly accessible (i.e. will show up in Google search results).  You can also choose to keep your online profile “Private” — in which case, only those who have the link to the profile will be able to see it  (i.e. your active profile will not be listed in Google search results).

To change these settings, go to My clients.  Click on the "Edit" button for your client and go to the "Profile" tab.  Scroll down to "Profile settings" to view / edit these settings.

To submit a client for any role, it is mandatory for you to setup at least one headshot photo and a complete profile for the client.  Your profile is tagged "incomplete" if these details are missing.

Per company policy, only photos which have been approved by our office can be viewed by Casting directors.  Any new photo you upload will be marked as “Pending approval” until our office can review it (which typically happens in less than a working day).

If your photo is still pending approval after 24 hours, please call our office at 7506757500.

Casting directors expect to see photos in a particular format called the “headshot”.  A headshot should clearly show your facial features and expressions should preferably be “neutral”.  Headshots should not be body-length photos and should not have distracting elements.

Your headshots should always reflect your latest image (e.g. if you have had your hairstyle changed, your headshot should be updated to reflect this).  Headshots should not be grainy or pixellated — we recommend you use a minimum size of 500 x 700 pixels or more.

You can use free applications like Microsoft Paint (for Windows) or Preview (for Mac) to resize images.  Free online tools like PicResize.com and ResizeYourImage.com can also resize images for you.

It is best to keep photo size above 500 x 700 pixels to maintain good image quality.

Submitting for castings

Click on Find casting calls on the top of this page to view the list of active castings.  Click on any casting to view more details about it.

To the right of the role description, click on the button called “Submit clients”.  In the window that appears:

  1. Select the clients you want to submit for this role.
  2. Select a cover photo for each client (preferably one that best matches the description of the character).
  3. (Optional) Attach videos / media with your submission (especially those performances that fit the role’s requirements).
  4. (Optional) Write any other information about the artist, to share with the Casting team.
  5. Click on the button called “Finish”

It is not possible to make edits to an existing submission.  In exceptional circumstances, you may contact our office for more assistance.

Keeping track of auditions

After you submit, your application is processed and sent to the Casting team’s online dashboard. Your client's photos, attached videos and message are displayed for the Casting team to review (along with the profile, resume and also the coordinator's contact details).

The Casting team uses this interface to make their shortlist for each role.  If your client is shortlisted for an audition you will receive an message in your Audition Fox mailbox from the Casting team.

You should always respond to audition invites (even if you want to decline the invitation).  You can respond by using the reply buttons at the bottom of the message.

The following are some best practices to improve your chances of being shortlisted for auditions:

  1. Choose roles smartly: Don’t submit for everything and everywhere.  Search for roles that fit your client's “look” and don’t waste time on roles that you know don’t fit your client's character type.
  2. Use professional headshots: In your photos, the actor should have a pleasantly neutral expression, should not wear distracting clothes and should not overdo their makeup.  Set up your photos’ thumbnails carefully – Casting directors often shortlist actors based on these thumbnails.
  3. Attach multiple 30-sec videos: Attach multiple 30-second show reels rather than long scenes.  Edit out any co-actors from your client's show reel.  Because your client's profile is already with the Casting Director, the actor doesn’t need to “slate” in the video.
  4. Submit for castings as soon as possible: There will be fewer applicants in the first few hours of a casting being published — which means your submission will likely get more focus from the Casting team.
  5. Work on your resume: A professional resume speaks for itself.  Keep your client's resume simple — for each of the past roles, just mention the project name / type, the role and the producer / creator's name.  Check out the sample resume for more ideas.
