Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Does HollywoodAuditions.com guarantee entertainment jobs, movie parts, or placement in shows and commercials?
Not one company in the world can guarantee you a job or part in a movie. Our promotions and Talent CD-ROM are designed to help actors, actresses, models, and other performers to obtain auditions. It is your responsibility to be at auditions on time and perform well enough to be selected by a casting director. We are not a talent or employment agency, we do not procure jobs and we do not guarantee any amount of income.
Q: What is the difference between an agent, a personal manager, and a casting director?
ANSWER: An agent is franchised by one or more of the performer's unions, and paid a fixed commission only after you have landed the job and been paid. A personal manager provides more comprehensive services than an agent, acting perhaps as a business manager, financial or legal advisor. They may collect a fee greater than agents, as they are not franchised by the performers' unions. A manager may invest considerable time and money in your career, unlike an agent. A casting director is a casting consultant employed by studios, networks, advertising agencies, or producers, and is paid by these companies.
Q: Which performers are accepted on Talent CD-ROM?
All actors, actresses, models, singers, musicians, dancers are welcome to participate on CD Talent Cast. We are looking for beginners and experienced performers who are ready to establish connections in the entertainment industry.
How does the Talent CD-ROM work ?
Casting directors receive the CD-ROM, which includes no more than 5,000 portfolios of actors, actresses, models, singers, dancers, voice-overs, etc. Each member's data is located on our CD-Rom, where casting directors locate potential performers through a search-engine format. Directors are able to search by location, age, origin, measurements, special talents, etc. Our CD-ROM saves time and reduces the hassle of dealing with paper photos and resumes.
Q: Who will receive the Talent CD-ROM ?
Casting directors and production companies who work with famous entertainment networks. We are also targeting agencies, talent managers, fashion designers, companies, and major corporations involved in the production of commercials. Our mail list includes over 5,000 names.

Q: Do I need professional pictures to participate?
We advise you to mail us professional pictures, but if you are on a low budget we will accept all photos. For inexpensive work, photography students at the college level are often willing to complete a portfolio for just the cost of the film. Of course, the process will be much longer, but often the results will surprise you. Please try to provide us with photos enlarged to the industry size of 8 X 10.
