Audition Update is moving. Click here to learn more.

Hello Everyone,

You’ve heard us talking about it all summer, and we’re finally ready to show you what we’ve been working on. I’m proud to announce that is moving to its new home on the Backstage Community.

What are the benefits of this new location? It’s mobile-friendly, it’s easier to police spam content and fake accounts, and best of all, it has collapsed threads! In addition, our developer team will be able to make changes, fix bugs, and implement new features much faster and easier on this new platform.

You’ll notice there’s a banner across the top of the screen here advertising the new location. If you click through that link, it will bring you to the registration screen where you can create your account and automatically receive the “Veteran” flair for being an Audition Update user. Even if you already have a Backstage account, clicking through the link will grant you the flair automatically so everyone will know you’ve been here a while and know what you’re talking about.

We’ll be decommissioning this forum slowly over the coming weeks, so you should save any threads or details that you want to reference later at your earliest convenience.

We know this will really help to improve things here at Audition Update, and we want to thank you - the community - for being here with us through the whole process.

– The Backstage Community Team

    Signed up 10 minutes ago and was #6 on the EMC list

    itbeme 02/13/2018  9:06am

    There’s an epa today? I thought it was only ECCs

    purse_first 02/13/2018  9:22am

    Damn, I did not see ANYTHING about an EPA either.

    crashtheparty 02/13/2018  9:28am

    I truly don’t think this was ever announced? Are we being trolled, haha.

    Fizzy14 02/13/2018  9:33am

    It’s on AEA website. EPA today and tomorrow.

    littleeagle 02/13/2018  9:50am

    Thanks littleeagle. I look forward to attending tomorrow with everyone else and not getting seen lol 😂

    crashtheparty 02/13/2018  9:51am

    Could someone be an angel and tell us how many equity alternates there are along with how many EMC now?
    Thank you!

    tmoli 02/13/2018  10:09am

    Called all alts, 10/14 EMC. seeing non eq soon, theoretically.

    moosevmouse 02/13/2018  10:17am

    Called the first 5 non eq

    crashtheparty 02/13/2018  10:38am

    Its lowkey full. No appts till After lunch. Long ass alternate list. Emcs in the 25+
    Only 10 seen. No non eq seen yet of course

    bewp 02/13/2018  10:49am

    There was definitely a non eq girl seen after me so I’d say go.

    LivingInAPlaceThatHurtsMyFace 02/13/2018  10:55am

    Can someone confirm the non-eq status on this? We have differing opinions, lol.

    princessanna 02/13/2018  11:03am

    ^ ditto! and how many are currently on the non-eq list?

    janisjoplinmanuel 02/13/2018  11:09am

    I think that person must have posted in the wrong thread. I took a photo when I signed up and they had most definitely gone through 5 people's names. First 4 weren't there.

    crashtheparty 02/13/2018  11:11am

    Called through 6 in non-eq. There are a couple emcs up here waiting now.

    BariToxic 02/13/2018  11:11am

    BariToxic 02/13/2018  11:19am

    how many are currently on non-eq list?

    janisjoplinmanuel 02/13/2018  11:19am

    22 of 23 Alternates called
    12 of 22 EMCs called

    Broadway808 02/13/2018  11:22am

    My bad, I didn’t see the first 5 noneq go in. But they pulled the list and brought it upstairs because they were seeing people so fast. But of course audition update people let the cat out of the bag and fucked the people that actually did their homework on this call

    so naturally, now equity people are rolling out of bed seeing there’s an EPA and showing up as alternates so everything just stopped.

    All progress stopped. There’s 38 on noneq. About three alternates per group. No appointments till four. 10 emc, and the alternates like I said, keep filling up. so frustrating.

    bewp 02/13/2018  11:26am

    Oh I did my homework, but I had two ECCs to get to beforehand. And a lot of other union members are in that boat too. So be careful before you start shaming us.

    littleeagle 02/13/2018  11:31am

    Bump on Alternate list situation?

    Bento Tinderbox 02/13/2018  12:17pm

    Anyone know when lunch is?

    princessanna 02/13/2018  12:20pm

    Exactly what littleeagle said.

    Sometimes there's other auditions going on at the same time and if you happen to get out early you roll over to another. You're not just stumbling in carelessly. You wanted to be there but something else was going on at the same time. I don't understand this idea where non union actors are mad at union members who show up to their own unions call. I get the frustration of not being seen but blame the union that just tripled the membership, not the actors.

    Ght57 02/13/2018  12:30pm

    Any updates for non eq?

    crashtheparty 02/13/2018  1:07pm

    Non-eq was dismissed till after lunch about an hour ago.

    BariToxic 02/13/2018  1:11pm

    As a non-union (EMC) member, I agree with littleeagle and Ght57 very strongly.

    Ета странно, I understand that these things can be frustrating, but these are union calls, and the union has things run a certain way in order to protect and serve their members -
    That's the whole point of a union. Most of them have paid their dues and done the early wake up, they've fought hard to be part of the union, or maybe they got lucky one day and were in the right place at the right time. Regardless, there isn't a union member who doesn't hope that non-eq and EMC gets seen that day because they know that same persistence is how they joined. It doesn't matter what the situation is, they still do get priority at these types of calls.

    We know this is how it works, so there's no need for blame or shame to be shown/thrown to/at anyone. Show up, and if you get seen, go in and make them fall in love with you.

    I knewwww some petty bitches were going to take this as an attack on them. 😂😂This was not an attack on you at all.

    you are the exception not the rule. Hey son previous comments on this post most people didn’t know it was even going on.

    Anyway hope all you LADIES got seen for this absurdlymale heavy, mostly non-union season here! and that you booked it. Genuinely. can’t wait to see you on the contract!

    bewp 02/13/2018  1:25pm

    Ета странно -- not an attack, but you call them "petty bitches"? Also, if you "knewwww" someone was going to take offense to your comment, maybe take a moment and realize that the way you're phrasing it may not be the best because clearly you already "knewwww" that.

    Other people were nice, and just keeping the peace. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    asanafterthought 02/13/2018  1:41pm

    Book it sweetie! 😘😘

    bewp 02/13/2018  1:49pm

    Everyone has been released. Casting is not coming back after lunch to finish out the day. We have no idea why or what happened but they are going to reschedule.

    Up every morning at six 02/13/2018  2:17pm

    Monitor just came in and said the audition is canceled for the rest of the day, for everyone, equity and non eq. They said keep and eye on their website for info about tomorrow. Get thee to more profitable auditions, y’all.

    Jdigs31 02/13/2018  2:17pm

    Totem Pole casting not returning to the call. All appts now canceled and will be rescheduled. No reason why. I don’t know more.

    singsing3 02/13/2018  2:19pm

    ...Is that allowed tho?

    CheeseSandwich 02/13/2018  2:52pm

    I mean... It’s super uncouth, almost never happens, but technically allowed? They're just required to offer appointments for any equity member who had one but didn’t get seen, for another day.

    peter.pan 02/13/2018  3:10pm

    What the hell happened...

    moosevmouse 02/13/2018  3:13pm

    Oh do we think they’re back for tomorrow or no?? How many equity people do they have to make up appointments to?

    Coffeewithachanceofcoffee 02/13/2018  4:53pm

    is tomorrow at equity again?

    jacobandsons443 02/13/2018  5:34pm

    Who’s got the inside scoop on went down? Please do share! :)
