What are castings?

Models get requested for castings / auditions by the client through their agent or will be called to an open casting through their agent. A casting normally takes place at a casting studio or any other premises allocated for this. (hotel conference rooms, etc.) You will either meet the client and show your portfolio at a stills casting (photographic casting) or be filmed by a casting director for a commercial casting. In this case the footage will be viewed later by the client and a further selection ( a shortlist) will be made or you will be requested for a callback. Digital castings are quite popular and this is where you will be photographed (headshot, profiles and full length) at a studio for the client to make a selection and then request a callback or make a booking.
