The Perfect Online Profile will get you more work!
Here is your GBM Casting guide to the perfect online profile to help you maximise the amount of work offers you get.
Here are 5 facts to consider when you are wondering why you are not getting as much work as you would like:
1. POP is a piece of software that GBM Casting uses to quickly search on behalf of productions.
2. GBM Casting uses POP software to match people, based on the details in their online profile, to productions background requirements.
3. If you have minimum details in your GBM Casting profile you will get minimum job offers.
4. People with up to date, clear and natural photographs always get the job.
5. No clear colour natural photo – no job
What we are emphasising here is your profile is the key to getting work. Because when we search everyone’s GBM profiles – only the people who have the details in their profiles will come up in the search and be contacted for work.
Therefore, minimum details in your profile will lead to you missing out on job offers as POP can’t find you.
So, how do you create the perfect profile?
Simply, by ensuring all the categories shown below are packed full of details. Updated on a regular basis
Of the categories shown above the list below is what GBM Casting is asked to provide every time. However, these are also the areas where people have put in the least information.
The hint here is to please ensure the following information is in your profile!
You can add up to 30 photos to your GBM online profile. There are many different categories and it is helpful to have as many photos of you as possible. At the moment the most important photos are of what you look like currently. No filters or sunglasses. Clear colour photos taken with a plain background are critical. Productions need to see what you look like so they can book you with confidence.
Here are examples of what we are looking for – yes, these are taken professionally but they demonstrate how close we need your photos to be. It is ok to take your photos with your phone.
Please feel free to update your photo weekly or monthly. Especially, if you change your hair colour or your look changes significantly.
There is also a photo category call same household – this allows you to add a photo of yourself with a member of your household who is also available for background work. You can also add your children, pets or formal wear.
All of them! As we get asked for them all the time.
You will not be considered for any productions that require costumes with no measurements. If you turn up at costume fitting and the costume does not fit you you will be released from the booking.
Ethnic look, hair colour, eye colour, skin tone, build, piercings, tattoos – all very important
Acting, qualified professional, other career experience, skills, languages, accents, pets and licences.
The more we know about you the more jobs we can match you to.
