Updated on April 2, 2024

Looking for a specific role in a movie, play, commercial, or TV show? Cast talent directly from the LancerHub or set up customizable castings. Castings allow you to identify the most authentic performers that can bring your story to life.

Select ‘Casting’ #

Create a new opportunity, choose ‘Casting’ in the second step. This will enable all features and functionalities that come with a casting The form below will show different options based on whether you choose an ‘Audition’, ‘Casting’, or ‘Job Call’.

Open or Closed Casting? #

In Step 3, you are asked to choose between an Open or Closed casting. This choice will impact you to invite artists to a casting. Here are our definitions of Open/Closed casting:

Open Casting: Anyone can register, and all registrants are automatically invited to participate in the casting. An Open Casting doesn’t involve a pre-selection round before the casting itself.

Closed Casting: Anyone can register but you will decide who gets invited via a pre-selection round. The pre-selection functionality allows you and your team to review all applicants and decide who gets invited to the audition and who doesn’t.

Preselection Options #

If you’ve chosen a Closed Casting, meaning you have a pre-selection, you have the option to choose how you would like to review candidates:

Option 1: Swipe & Invite
This option allows you to review, invite, and reject dancers on a rolling basis. When you view an application and click on ‘Invite’ or ‘Reject’, the artists will directly receive a notification with the results. Think of it like a ‘tinder-style’ reviewing system. This function is great for castings happening in a short timeframe. It’s quick and easy!

Option 2: Sort & Invite

This option allows you to sort all applicants into 3 categories: ‘Invite’, ‘Reject’, and ‘Potential’. You can move candidates from category to category. After you have reviewed all applicants, you can bulk-send the results. Each category triggers a specific message template and all applicants will hear their results at the same time. This option is great for companies organizing large castings and collaborating with their entire team.

Single Date or Timeslots #

Depending on the size of your casting, you may choose your (invited) applicants to automatically join one date or book a timeslot.

Single Date: for castings where everybody joins the same first round on the same date at the same time. The date listed here is the starting date of your casting, not the whole event.

Timeslots: with Timeslots you can create multiple first rounds of a casting. This can be on the same day or even on different days/ locations. Please check out our separate article on Timeslots where we show a few cases of how to utilize them.

General Information #

After you have configured your casting process, you can now start to create the casting call. The audition call is what people see in terms of description, requirements, image, etc. We touch on all these different steps in the ‘Posting An Opportunity’ section.

Up next we are discussing Job Calls!
