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 AuditionUpdate.com is moving to its new home on the Backstage Community.

What are the benefits of this new location? It’s anonymous, 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

  • NAB- Favorite platform for websites? 08/10/2018  10:05am

    I've been using Weebly but I'm over it. What's your go-to for DIY acting websites?

    i use squarespace and i love it! it's a little pricey but if you use a school email address you can get a discount for your first year (at least i could when i first signed up). i had wix before and i could just never get it to look the way i wanted, so i think the extra cost for squarespace is worth it for the sleek/professional-looking templates. it also has cool analytic features that can tell you all about who's seeing your site/where they are/page traffic/etc

    I do websites, Wix and Weebly etc are so cookie cutter, graphicsbykatie.com. I do freebie websires on Wednesdays but the rest are 120 - to 35 flat depending on the project. I'll host you for free, but you do have to buy a .com name as with anything. Godaddy does 11 or less a year, name.com I've seen for 5.00 I've worked for ABC, Sony, Broadway etc. After I design it it's all in your hands to do whatever, I do free lifetime updates too. :) love to help!

    ActorIndex is actually really great. It's about the same cost per month as Wix, Weebly, Square Space, etc, but they have really nice templates tailored for acting websites, so it takes about 30 minutes to complete it and then editing it is super easy. In addition to the site itself they also offer some self tape services and such (tho I haven't taken advantage of those). I used Wix for three years, and I was never satisfied with it. I was pretty much able to set it and feel done with AI, and only feel the need to edit it when I have new credits/production shots.
