Two affordable levels of membership.
Here’s how to get started: Simply sign up for a Basic Membership from ActorCast—which is just $10 a year— and instantly, your headshot, resume, credits and other current info will be available on the casting director’s workspace on Cast It.
To give yourself an even stronger image, a premium membership in ActorCast — just $9 per month or $100 per year — allows you to add unlimited video clips* in your profile, and you can swap out and edit as often as you like, all included in the fee.
No matter which level you choose, all ActorCast memberships allow unlimited submissions for roles that match your profile. If there are no roles that match your profile, you can always email your profile or packages to anyone at anytime. So if you feel you’re perfect for a role of project, you can let the world know it. And unlike other casting services, there are no extra fees to update your profile, photo or video clips—you can optimize your profile and information as often as you want.

Hey everyone! Just wanted to fill you in on what I'm up to this week
Got a lot of unused headshots that I need to get rid of. I've been using these shots since '07 but I'm changing my hair so I won't be able to use them...I don't want to throw them away nor shred them so I'm mailing them all out over the next few weeks. Most agencies don't even open their mail but I'll rather send them out and have someone else throw them away then to throw them away myself!
I'm getting new ones probably in April, maybe sooner not sure yet.
Sunday morning I am taking an acting seminar that another actor named Christopher Stadulis is giving. He's been very successful in his acting endeavors and he has no agent nor manager so I feel this seminar should be very informative since I have neither an agent nor manager.
Then Sunday evening is my first day of my 2 Day Intensive class for legal proofreading. It last 4 hours. Then about a few days til a week later I will take the 2nd part of the class. I plan to work 3rd shift or either just the weekend shift....I have to test with multiple agencies that place proofreaders to better my chances of finding this type of job.
That's it for this week...and perhaps this month...career wise....on a personal level I'm planning for my trip to visit my niece and brother for Christmas and trying to find a decent venue to party for New Year's Eve...
