An online portfolio
is a web page or website containing an actor's or a model's information. It will include your headshots or comp card photos, resume, personal statistics, contact information, and agency or representation. Many
actors and models try to promote themselves through the Internet
by presenting online portfolios directly to talent agencies and casting directors.
Also, many casting directors now go online to search for potential talent. If they like your online profile, you will be called in for the audition. Casting directors search through our
talent database, which includes photographs and virtual resumes of actors, actresses,
models, singers, dancers, voice-overs, etc. Acting agencies, modeling agencies, and casting companie are
able to search by location, age, origin, particular features, body measurements, special
talents and any other specific information that the acting role or modeling job calls for.
Online portfolios are designed to save time and
reduce the hassle of dealing with mailing actual photos and resumes.
Agencies, casting directors, and staff don't always have time to go through the traditional casting process where they send out audition breakdowns and wait for submissions, which may takes weeks, if not months. Sometimes, casting is done by talent search. This is when the casting staff search for talent that match the audition breakdowns rather than having just anyone come to the auditions. And nowadays, online portfolios gives casting companies access to all talent everywhere. By joining our talent search database, your profile, resume, portfolio, demo reel, and headshot will be available for acting agencies, modeling agencies, and casting companies to view. If you match any of the audition breakdowns, you will be contacted via phone or email with the details for the audition.
