Unless you’ve had your head in the sand, you may have noticed a new trend emerging in casting all around the country and the globe! Fueled by advances in available video technology, casting directors now seek out the best possible talent for their projects in markets far beyond the boundaries that restrained them in the past, AND they can accomplish this more efficiently than ever before. Virtual auditions provide new opportunities for actors to access more projects than ever before and to BOOK in markets previously inaccessible.
