Backstage

Backstage has been around forever as a print magazine. Many actors remember finding jobs, agents, and advice in the weekly publication. They were always strongest for the theater and for the East Coast and this is still true today. Their online content of information and advice for actors is the best of all the sites. The fact that most of the contributors are also softly pushing their own classes, books, or workshops doesn’t detract from the fact that they are offering sound advice for new and experienced actors. For the Los Angeles market I almost never see breakdowns from professional CDs unless they are reposting a breakdown from LA Casting or Actors Access to cast a much wider net for those hard to find characters. That means for the Los Angeles area it will be mostly independent films with producers who aren’t familiar with the other casting sites. They send email notifications for each new matching project as they happen.
