The television and film industry have been hit hard by falling advertising revenues. Yet everywhere you look, online, on the radio, television, mobile phone content - there are adverts. And where there are adverts there are actors. Where do companies find these actors for all the new and burgeoning media platforms?
Increasingly, companies are turning to Casting Call Pro, the online directory of professional actors. "We've been used for police training videos, online viral Valentine campaigns, commercials for high-end, nationally known brands who pay the actors thousands for a buy out, and also smaller scale clients who have needed actors to bring a professionalism to their commercial pitch,' said Castings Manager, Maria Hayden.
Since it's creation five years ago, Casting Call Pro has grown to become one of the UK's largest directory of professional actors. In that time it has become an invaluable resource for companies looking for actors - whether for corporate training videos, commercial, online viral ads, or advertising agencies pitches.
Casting Call Pro has been particularly successful in reaching out to companies who traditionally might not know how to source actors.
Managing Director, Simon Dale, explained: "Companies needing actors for a training video or a commercial, often don't know where to turn when looking for actors. It can be especially tricky as often projects are fast turnaround and they need actors immediately. We've set out to bridge a gap between this kind of employer and professional actors who are looking for work."
Casting Call Pro lists 18,000 actors, all with a professional photo, skills, and details of past credits whilst many have online showreels. It is used by over 10,000 companies who hire actors for a wide range of work and the service is entirely free for companies wishing to hire actors.
'We don't see advertising shrinking, just being used more creatively,' said Simon Dale. 'Ads will still get made and companies will still need actors. Casting Call Pro brings the two together.
