There are 3 steps involved in working on a show or film with our casting company: Once you Register with our company and submit your info for the casting call. Then you will follow these steps below:
1. AVAILABILITY CHECK (OR COMPLETING SURVEY)
2. BOOKING EMAIL
3. CALL INFO
Here’s an explanation of what those steps are!
1. AVAILABILITY CHECK:
A few days before each episode shoots, you will receive an availability check for the dates we need you. You will need to respond with your availability for those dates ASAP. Or complete a survey with your availability.
An availability check does NOT mean you are booked!
Once we receive everyone’s availability, we will book people based on the needs of the production for those days.
2. BOOKING EMAIL
If you are booked, you will receive a BOOKING EMAIL. It will give you the details of the days you are booked to work. You must respond to your booking or you will be replaced.
If you respond to the AVAILABILITY CHECK and don’t receive a booking email, it means that you are not needed for that particular episode. If you don’t work on one, it doesn’t mean you won’t work on the next one. We will do our best to get a booking email to you no later than 48 hours of the shoot date.
3. CALL INFO
The day before your booking you will receive your CALL INFO. You can expect this email to arrive some time between 8:00PM and 11:00PM. This is because we do not get the official call times until they are finished filming on that current day. When you receive your CALL INFO email you are REQUIRED to respond. This is how we know you have received the information and that you will be there.
**Remember you must be registered to be considered to be on any show in the Chicago area**
