The Future of Casting and Talent Representation

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

Recording: The Future of Casting and Talent Representation, Mar 12, 2023

With the explosion of streaming and series commissioning the need for global talent is higher than ever for international productions. But how to find the best talent match or promote talents more efficiently when face-to-face interactions and travel restrictions is a significant challenge. CastingForm fills the gap by providing talents and filmmakers a place to be seen and discovered, reimagining the standard for hiring actors, which has been set more than a half-century ago. With 20K talent reps for 4M actors globally, there just aren’t enough talent agents and managers on the market to cover the demand. More than 90% of talents lack representation, meaning they don’t have access to jobs at all. Despite this, top producers and agencies are continually on the lookout for new stars.
