So Tell Me: Why Do So Many Casting Calls Expire?

It’s a good question, and we get it a lot. It can be disappointing when you notice a casting call that’s perfect for you, only to find that it’s expiring the very next day.

But don’t despair, there’s a good reason for this, and you can use it to your advantage. In fact, urgent castings can be a good thing where ClaimFame gives you a leg up on the competition. Here’s how:

Many casting directors have needs that change on a daily basis. They’re filming a project one day and realize they need extras for a crowd scene the next. What to do? Here at ClaimFame, we’ve got the intel and we get the info out to you as soon as possible.

Because it’s an urgent opportunity, you have the opportunity to jump on it quickly – that’s why it’s a good idea to always check your daily ClaimFame email as soon as it arrives .. before it’s too late.

The flip side is that once the scene shoots, the casting call expires. We never promote expired casting calls, but sometimes they do appear in the archives of the site. So it’s important to always check the application deadline to make sure the casting is still active.

So don’t be bummed out when you see an expiring call. Look at it as a unique opportunity brought to you by ClaimFame’s round-the-clock service. This is a time-sensitive business, so being alert always pays off!

We’d love to hear if you’ve been able to take advantage of an “Urgent” casting:
