If you don’t have agency representation listed on your Spotlight account: to registered professionals on Spotlight, you will be noted as ‘Self-represented’ and casting directors will be able to use a ‘Contact Form’ on your profile to request an email to be sent directly to you so you can engage with the professional on the query via email. Only Casting Directors who are signed into their active casting account can use this form.
However, if you share your profile externally to Spotlight and an enquirer (not registered with Spotlight) wants to get in touch with you, they will see the details for our Enquiries team on your profile for these instances.
Any enquiries that we receive for you would then be vetted and passed through to you directly via email, if approved.
We do recommend that you ensure that your email address is up to date. You can check this by going to the menu on the left hand side and scrolling down to the ‘Account settings’ section and clicking on ‘My Login Details’.
To apply for jobs on Spotlight yourself, you simply need to go to your ‘Jobs Board’, click on the role you would like to apply for and then scroll to the bottom of the breakdown, where you will see the option ‘Submit profile’. You can then directly submit your profile for the role and you also have the option to add a note to the Casting Professional. Your email address will be sent with your submission so you can be contacted directly.
We would recommend that you keep this note incredibly short and sweet, as they will not have time to read any long messages in detail. It’s probably only best to write something if it is relevant to the casting and not already listed on your profile.
You can see all of the roles you have submitted yourself for by clicking on the ‘Show all roles’ filter, at the top of your Jobs Board, and selecting ‘Show roles with suggestions’ from the drop down list. If you select this option, it will come up with a list of all of the breakdowns you have put yourself forward for.
