Two Simple reason to use a casting directories website : More Exposure and More Auditions
First exposure ; lets face it in this business the more the better and many local casting directors frequent casting directories looking for fresh talent . While major parts maybe cast in LA or NYC , Directors often look for local talent to fill their needs in support parts and extras . Casting directories market their talent and good ones like Big Apple Faces and Phillyfaces invest heavily in new technology and social media as well as face time to promote their product.
The second issue for actors is of course work, while no one can guarantee gigs the more auditions you go to the greater your chances are to get paying work , its simple math . To paraphrase Woody Allen "99% is showing up" . There truly is no better way to network than through auditions. You meet the players ,introduce yourself , and look professional .
Good casting directories provide you with a continuous flow of new up to date leads for casting calls from multiply sources . Yes you maybe able to gather them yourself by spending endless hours searching the internet , but for a small fee a site like Big Apple Faces or Phillyfaces does all the work for you and provides you with daily casting calls at the touch of a button freeing you for more time to attend auditions .
