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

    Anyone on here have any luck booking union jobs on Casting Networks? Wondering if I should purchase premium services for $100 a year to submit to jobs posted there.

    CN is usually best for BG work. And union BG work is aleady damn near impossible to get unless you have an in with casting.

    I'm non-union and I get a lot of background work from casting networks. I recommend having TONS of pictures in different looks. Business attire, punk attire, formal, homeless, regular pedestrian, etc. as MANY looks as you can possibly have. That's the only way to book with them. If you're wanting principal roles it's a little different. I've gotten a couple of things but it requires more media files and a reel if you have one. So if you're consistent, one background job per month will pay for the subscription. (Like 15 bucks a month) and as union you make great money doing background acting. But you have to be consistent!! (Meaning SUBMIT SUBMIT SUBMIT!)

    Premium Services are GREAT for CN in NY/USA.

    The LACasting spin off does not offer this.
    In fact, it's $15 each additional photo.
    I inquired about why they don't have unlimited photo uploads like CN NY/USA and they had no valid response.
