Frequently Asked Questions
How can I be an Actor or Extra with Nancy Mosser Casting?
Everyone should create an online profile with us under the Talent Registration section on our website. It is free unless you want to have an acting website to market yourself either through us or independently. This is called an "activated" account.
With the free profile, you will be able to upload 2 pictures of yourself. Make sure these pictures are a good representation of how you look now. You should not submit pictures that are taken from far away or have you wearing a hat or sunglasses as these do not accurately portray how you look. Talent will need to type in their resume, contact information and sizes.
Actors: Like every other profession, acting is a job that requires training and experience. Every day we are looking for trained actors for projects that require different levels of skill. Please make sure that you include all of your training in your profile including all college level and post-college training and also any acting experience in theater, film, television, radio and corporate projects.
Extras: ! You do not need any previous experience. What we do need are people who are reliable and who don't mind working long days (usually 12-14 hours). People who enjoy theatre, movies, and being around creative people love being extras in productions that we cast. We need people of all ages, ethnicities and sizes. We will call you if you are right for any projects we are casting.
EVERYONE SHOULD MAKE SURE TO KEEP AN EYE ON OUR BLOG FOR UPCOMING PROJECTS!
What does it mean to be on file with Nancy Mosser Casting?
After you have created your online profile with us under the “Talent Registration” section, you are considered to be on file with us. Being on file with us means that you are officially registered to be considered for work in Entertainment media. Remember, we are NOT Talent Agents so we DO NOT represent talent. Talent are represented by Agents. Agents are the ones who will submit talent for auditions and earn commission from your work. As Casting Directors, we work for our clients, the Producers, Directors and Production companies who hire us, assisting them in finding the right talent for the job. A Production company is who actually hires you, not Nancy Mosser Casting so we are NEVER the Employer of Record.
Please Note: It is up to you to keep your profile updated with current information.
