Checking casting directors’ identity
3 October 2012
Equity has learnt that someone has been setting up false emails and Facebook accounts using the details of high profile casting directors and then attempting to set up castings.
Please use common sense regarding invitations to audition and check to make sure they are genuine.
There are various ways of doing this and it’s wise to do a number of these.
1) You can check details with the Casting Directors Guild
2) Check details on Spotlight
3) If you have IMDBpro you can search for casting directors and their details
4) Make sure you are looking at their genuine website/Facebook page by cross referencing contact details to make sure they are the same.
If you do have any concerns you can always contact Equity.
