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 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: Headshot Photographers 05/16/2018  1:45pm

    Hiya! So, I have needed to get new headshots for quite some time, but have been putting it off because of the expense.

    My ask: If you've shot with a photographer who you had a positive experience with, who shoots industry standard headshots - I would love to know. Or if you know of a photogrpaher who is open to bartering (ie... I have this service/skill that might be of use, in exchange for a less expensive rate), I'm open to that as well!

    My Budget: $500 - OR LESS (preferrably)


    David Perlman!

    I had the most inexpensive shots of my life done two weeks ago by Rashidah De Vore. Her website speaks for itself; the quality I see on her examples is the exact quality I received. And her 30-minute package (2 or 3 looks with touch ups) was just very affordable and reasonable.

    I did her studio shots, with the gray background pictured on her website, and paid $99 for my three looks and two images retouched, and I'm using them already. She's, of course, not established or famous like many names, but I love the value and attention and artistry she has set up for those who are into the set up she has. If you are willing to prep yourself fast, and you like her backdrops and lighting set up, she is great!

    He is a gem and he way undercharges for the caliber of photos he takes but he is an actor and believes in providing an affordable product to other actors.

    Tessa Flannery. Way less expensive than your budget and SO SO SO worth every penny.
