OPEN CASTING CALL WHAT TO DO , the best thing to do is just show up! If I post an email for those who can't show up, it is simply a backup for the casting team. There would not be an open call if there was not a simple need to find LOCAL people. So with that said, next time you see an OPEN CASTING CALL, just show up. Don't be lazy and try to submit to an the email address. Casting directors will only hire those who show up at the event. Or to paraphrase Woody Allen 99% of life ie Casting is showing up . If you go to more casting calls you greatly increase your chances of getting parts.

The other issue that no one mentions is "pay". When you first start your inundated by opportunities for "exposure", and "credits ".Sounds great until you try to cash that "exposure" in at the grocery store. It is just amazing how so many actors and models spend all their time working other jobs giving them little or no time to go to auditions.
That's when you turn to Big Apple Faces and Phillyfaces;

The problem for most entertainment professionals is always where do I find enough quality auditions and casting calls.

There are so many entertainment professionals that when you first start you are just not a salable commodity, so if you do have an agent you are usually a very low priority. Again nothing can beat a quality agent, but you have to earn your way and that takes time.
So what we need to raise some cash to finish our new Phillyfaces and Big Apple Faces website and create a PR budget for google ad-words and in person networking.
