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: Anyone hear of H2A Management? 12/07/2017  4:46pm

    Hi all!
    So I submitted my resume for commercial print shoots on Backstage and I received a message back from the listing to come in for a open call for a company called H2A Management. I looked at their website and it *seems* legit , but in their message they mentioned " that if you are selected for representation in this division, you may be required to invest in commercial presentation materials;" which always throws up a red flag.
    Anyone work with them or have a warning for me?

    Did you learn anything more about H2A? I got the same email from them.

    Sounds like a scam. Anytime representation reaches out to you and then mentions you paying for something, it's not good

    Hello everyone,

    Just wanted to take a moment to talk about what we found with this casting call. After some investigation, our casting team decided to take it down and discontinue working with the company who posted this notice. It sounds like, based on what they’re sending to our users, that they’re some kind of bait & switch operation, which is totally against our terms of use.

    As always, if you ever have questions or want us to investigate a casting call for you, feel free to reach out to customers@backstage.com and we’ll be happy to assist.

    Thanks everyone.

    Hi, I went in to H2A. Was told, before they'd even seen my full portfolio, that I'd have to shoot with their own photographer for $600. Personally I thought his pix were awful. The contract I was sent also appears to double dip. When I asked about it they went radio silent on me.
