Casting Networks aka LA Casting
If your clip/reel is less than 4 minutes, I’ve included a version specifically formatted for this site in a folder titled z-Casting Networks. A file over 4 minutes can’t be posted on this site.
You have to pay a monthly or annual Media Hosting fee to post on this site. This fee covers the cost of all videos you upload.
Once you add a video to your Casting Networks/LA Casting profile you will need to call, e-mail or visit their kiosk at 200 S. La Brea to ask them to copy it to all of your profiles. You have a profile for each agent and manager that submits you.
Once you have activated Media Hosting, you can upload as many clips as you like. The clips can be up to 4 minutes in length and no larger than 50 mb. To upload media, select Media Bin from the Resume drop-down. On the right side of the page, you will see a link that says “Add Media.”
After clicking the link to “Add Media,” you will be taken to the upload page. Uploading media is a three-step process.
- Click “Browse My Computer” and select the file you would like to upload.
- Step 2 can be used to trim the beginning or end of your media. This tool is mostly used to eliminate contact info, ads for editing software or to extract a certain segment from a larger clip. If you do not wish to trim your media, skip this step.
- The last step is to make sure that we have the correct email address on file so that we can contact you when your media has been approved.
After completing these steps, click “Add My Media” and your file will begin to upload. Once your media has been uploaded, it may take up to four business hours for it to be reviewed for approval. We thank you for your patience.
You have to pay a monthly or annual fee to host videos. One fee covers the cost of all videos you upload. Instructions can be found in this link.
