Auditions

Free Student, Independent & Open Call Auditions for Kids+Teens. Updated Weekly.

Auditions are collected and re-posted from around the web (Vancouver Actors Guide, Craigslist Talent Gigs, VPL). No agent is required to submit yourself for an audition, just email a resume and headshot (or clean 4″x6″) to the email address listed in each posting. Biz Studio does not verify these postings or the fillmakers behind them, they are presented just as we find them. Listen to your instincts — almost all of the postings we find or receive are from legitimate filmmakers. “Free” films like student and independent films are a great way for young actors to gain confidence, build their resume, and develop on-set skills that can only be learned with a full crew and professional camera equipment. Producers actively look at a resume when hiring new actors, and having a few independent or student films on there shows that an actor already has some exposure and knows what to do on set. You can also ask for copies of the work and edit out short clips to add to your “demo reel” which often gets linked to your Casting Workbook profile and becomes a useful marketing tool for you (if you’re looking for an agent) and for your agent (if they’re trying to convince casting directors to see you).
