Casting Calls Section
The ‘Casting Calls’ section contains all the opportunities listed on our site, and it’s updated in real time. Beyond manually perusing our many casting calls, you can also apply filters to match the types of opportunities you’re looking for, as well as save these searches for later.
Filters & Saved Searches
One of Backstage’s primary features that sets it apart from the competition is the ability to filter your opportunity searches by many helpful filters, getting the jobs most relevant to your skills and abilities delivered directly to you.
To engage your search filters, click on the filter icon located in the upper right corner of the screen.
Just like Backstage.com, the Backstage Casting app will allow you to filter by 9 different criteria, including gender, age range, location, production type, compensation, ethnicity, and more.
Once you’ve applied your filters you can save your search for future reference. Simply tap the ‘Save’ button that will appear along the bottom of the screen.
When an opportunity fits the criteria set in your search you can set notifications to alert you. These notifications can be sent via email, push notification, or both and you get to choose the frequency that works best for you.
Be sure to turn on push notifications for the Backstage Casting app in your phone’s settings to ensure your notifications get to you.
Applying to a Role
With the Backstage Casting app, applying to opportunities is easier than ever. Simply navigate to the ‘Roles’ tab in the opportunity screen, and click on the blue ‘Apply’ button under the role you’re looking to apply to. You’ll be directed to attach your media assets, resumes, and write a cover letter before sending off your application to the casting director to view.
