Here are the latest updates:

Rich-Text Added to Breakdowns

Date: 28 September 2023
We’ve now introduced a ‘Rich-Text’ to our Breakdowns. This gives casting directors the ability to: – Highlight key parts of the breakdown.
  • Link out to reference videos easily.
  • Set clear instructions.
  • Stress the importance of must have characteristics.
  • Clearly mark out usage fees per territory and other essential agreement info.

Geo-Targeted Breakdowns – Casting Locally

Date: 28 June 2023

We have introduced a new “Local Hire” flag to breakdowns so you can more easily highlight to agents and performers when you need talent local to the production location. This appears in an agent and performer’s Jobs Feed with a red “Local Hire” tag relating to the Production Location (if specified). You will also be able to specify what type of audition you will be holding: Online, Self-Tape, or In-Person. If you select ‘In-Person’, you will then be required to state the location.

Rich-Text Added to Messages to Shortlists

Date: 16 May 2023

Casting directors can now include line spacing, italics, underlining and hyperlinks to the messages they send from a shortlist of performers, making them easier to read.

 

We are continuing to improve this feature and welcome your feedback – you can email us at castings@spotlight.com

Filters Added to Breakdown Suggestions Page

Date: 2022 

You can now filter your breakdown suggestions using a wide variety of filters, allowing you to cast your net wide, and then reduce the number of results based on your criteria.

You can request submissions from available performers and then reduce the number of suggestions by location, skills, accents, languages, etc.
