Cazt

This is the website for a Los Angeles casting studio that also operates it’s own casting billboard. Casting Directors can use their studios for free as long as they upload the auditions to the Cazt servers (which is done automatically when you use their ipads to record the auditions). The CDs can list their breakdowns anywhere but they must also list them on Cazt’s breakdown system. They are encouraged to select some percentage of their candidates from the Cazt breakdown system submission pool and they are required to leave some feedback on each audition though only about 30% do in my experience. It’s annoyingly difficult to find out how much they charge until you set up a free basic profile. You don’t have to have a profile to audition at Cazt or to look at their breakdowns. Subscribing gets you the ability to submit to the Cazt breakdowns, watch your audition video auditions, forward your auditions to your agent, manager, or coaches and the ability to see the feedback on the audition. Members also can go in to do a video audition for free. I subscribed to Cazt for a few years but stopped a while ago. If you’re still building your reel, I’d think that it’s worth while to sign up to submit to the roles there. Roles looking for more experience will also post their breakdowns to L.A. Casting. I’ve heard complaints about their use of iPads to film the audition. In my experience, the shot is too wide and if its zoomed in, too grainy.
