Tips to create the perfect profile

You must provide good photographs. They have to show the real you. If you submit a photograph showing yourself with long hair and arrive on a set with short hair, the casting director might well cancel the booking.

Insert as many measurements as possible in the profile. Sometimes bookers need to know the person’s measurements because they need to match a specified costume size to make sure it fits. If your profile does not include any measurements – then you will be ignored by booking organisations. They want to know measurements such as height, weight, bust, inside leg, outside leg.

Make sure you have added all your contact information including address, emergency number, mobile, email. Sometimes we have to get in touch with people urgently and fast – if the contact information is not present then you may lose out on a booking.

Add in all the skills and training that could be relevant. This could include special skills like first aid, horse riding, scuba diving, jogging, even linguistic skills. If you speak more than one language say so on your profile.

Response time – this is very important. You need to respond fast and immediately whenever you are contacted. Film companies want to make decisions quickly, and ensure they have the right people for the job.
