This site was set up for film crew to find work and they added actors into the mix. It’s mostly student or first time director films (nothing wrong with either of those). It’s free to set up an account and post to jobs but if you want more than a weekly listing of the new jobs, you need to pay $40/yr.

This is a casting site that started in Sydney Australia where I went to acting school. At the time, it was the only online player in town. It was useful for student and lower budget indie films in Sydney. While they have a global presence, when I moved to L.A. there weren’t any local jobs on there so I unsubscribed. Checking the postings today, there is one project that fit my criteria shooting in LA – an unpaid student film consisting of 5 minutes of “mostly improv” for some London film students coming into town for 2 weeks.
