Casting Frontier is a Proud Sponsor of the Los Angeles 48 Hour Film Project

July 4, 2013

Just how determined are you to gain exposure in the highly competitive field of acting? Are you willing to put in 48 frenzied, passionate, and sleepless hours with a team of like-minded movie makers to create a film that will be featured at a local movie theater in a celebrated film festival? If this sounds like you, you certainly are not alone. Indeed, last year over 50,000 filmmakers created approximately 4,000 movies in 120 cities on 6 continents just to participate in the renowned 48 Hour Film Project. And what better time to get in on the fun than now? The 48 Hour Film Project will be in Los Angeles on the weekend of August 2-4, 2013 to see who can create the finest short film in a scant 48 hours.

Yes, that includes writing, shooting, editing, and scoring–all within the minuscule time frame. This is how it goes: On a Friday night, you are assigned a character, a prop, a line of dialogue, and a genre that are required to be included in your movie. 48 hours later, your short film must be completed and submitted. Then, your movie will be played on the silver screen of a Los Angeles theater. Come on, isn’t this what you came to this town for?!

Teams are being accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, so the sooner you register, the better. Also keep in mind, if you are unable to assemble a movie-making team on your own, you still have a chance to be placed on an existing team by entering your name, email, skills, and job desired on a “Put Yourself Out There” form.

We at Casting Frontier have sponsored the Los Angeles 48 Hour Film Project this year, and we are cheering for all our members to see their acting dreams realized–and then some!

Super Bowl Commercial Casting Opportunities

February 1, 2013

According to Robert Horowitz, the executive producer of Super Bowl’s Greatest Commercials, today’s Super Bowl spots cost approximately 10 million dollars: 4 million for the airtime, and 6 million to produce, promote, and distribute. “It’s like launching a motion picture,” he asserts.

Why would any company in their right mind pay such astronomical fees for a commercial? One word: Exposure. What other marketing opportunity presents itself in which the masses actually drop their barbequed chicken wings, forfeit their position in line at the bar, and rush to the TV yelling, “The commercials are on!! The commercials are on!” Every year, this cultural phenomenon seems to grow expotentially.

When watching this year’s Super Bowl commercials, don’t settle for being merely entertained or mesmerized. Rather, get inspired; get driven; get smart! A good number of these marketing bonanzas have been cast through Casting Frontier. That means, if you create a user-friendly Casting Frontier actor profile, first-class casting directors can immediately consider you for their local, national, and Super Bowl commercials. There’s no reason you shouldn’t be up for a Super Bowl spot in the year 2014. Remember, you can’t score a touchdown if you’re not in the game. To land a high-paying commercial spot, it would behoove you to get a premium or premium  plus Casting Frontier account. Make sure your online resume, professional headshots, and reel are up to date. Casting directors are on a mission to find remarkable, fresh, authentic, skilled actors–that’s their job. Take your acting career seriously, and they will take you seriously. Go ahead and give yourself a chance to be immortalized in a classic Super Bowl commercial or campaign. We will keep our eyes glued to the TV screen looking out for you!
