Equity concerned with commercials auditions
9 December 2013
The union is consulting with the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising (IPA), agents and casting directors on how to resolve the casting issue after it had received a number of complaints from members about what they were being asked at auditions.
Many of these questions are on the forms that performers complete at initial auditions. They are often different to the IPA/Equity-agreed Artist’s Declaration Form.
Equity vice president Jean Rogers said: “Recently I have been told of some alarming questions that may well breach equalities law, and certainly demean the dignity and basic human rights of the artist.”
