We’ve all wanted to meet our favorite artists and directors. Some of us are even interested in working by their side. Well, you’ve been able to do so all this time; you just didn’t know it. In this article, we compiled a list of the two most used services that will help you connect with directors, filmmakers, actors, etc. These services consist of backstage casting; browse all the available auditions and castings to select one of your interests. Select open roles and apply for an audience!
Most big streaming movies use backstage casting to select their secondary characters, so what makes you think you can’t be the next one? Here are the two must requested and used platforms:
You can now enjoy a free trial of membership at IMDbPro. Register, obtain your trial, and prepare your resume to start applying!

Here you can surf through a large amount of auditions for movies, TV shows, etc.
If you’re a producer looking for talents, this service is for you as well. You’ll be able to create your own castings, review the candidates applying, post the open roles and select your actors. If you don’t have time to look at every proposal, IMDbPro also offers match-up functionality. This service will match up the ideal candidate for your film/genre.
IMDbPro also allows you to stay connected with other users. You can access databases, contact information, complete filmographies and rankings of other users. Engage with over 200,000 contacts and keep yourself updated with the latest film industry news.
Backstage is an Audition & Casting platform with the largest database of performers, auditions and castings.
