Erica Arvold, CSA is a casting director. We are not a talent agency. We do not represent actors.
We are hired to cast film, television, web series, commercial, industrial, voice over, print, and theatre projects. We cast principal actors as well as background. We would like to know you.
We use the casting director’s version of AgencyPro, an online database that helps organize the professional information, photos, and resumes of the actors we meet. If you would like to be considered for the many projects that we cast, please click on the talent application button to your right. You may include your direct contact information as well as your talent agent and manager information.
Actors can apply for a free basic (“Non-Active”) account which will hold two photos, a short video file, and a resume; or upgrade with AgencyPro to a paid (“Active”) account to include additional information, such as a greater number of headshot photos and video files in our database. Whether an actor selects a free Non-Active account or a paid Active account, he or she will be considered for any of our projects for which we think they’d be right.
AgencyPro’s software streamlines and organizes our many files. Think of it like any other program (such as Excel or Word) that we have installed on our computers for our own purposes. We do not share your information with anyone other than our staff and our clients (producers/directors/ad agencies) when actively casting a project.
On larger projects, in addition to digging into our own files, we use shared casting sites such as Breakdown Services, 800Casting and Now Casting (among others) to cast a wide net in order to find the appropriate talent for a role…but, that said, the most direct way for you to be seen by us is to exist in our database.
For regional projects, we post our submission calls on many listserves around the area, on our facebook group page and on our ‘casting notices’ page on this site.
We look forward to considering you for a project!
