StudentCasting.co.uk allows any student registered as studying either film production or film and television related courses at undergraduate level at a university in the U.K to post a casting call. Castings will not be accepted without a valid university e-mail account.
This is to ensure that the projects are genuine and are not coming from fraudulent companies, and the actions of could cause risk or harm to anyone who applies to the relevant casting.
Casting Call Publishing
Once you have submitted your casting call it will be sent approval by the site administrators. The criteria are set with the aim of including as much relevant information as possible, all fields must be completed and any castings with missing information will not be published.
It may take up to 24 hours for your casting to appear. StudentCasting.co.uk will aim to publish any castings as soon as possible but due to resources being limited you should expect a period of 24 hours before your casting is approved.
We do not have the resources to inform you when your call has been published at present so please check back on the site within 24 hours to check that your casting call has been posted.
Casting Calls not published
If your casting call has not been published within 24 hours of submitting it has most likely been rejected for the following reasons
· Missing information
· Suspected to be fraudulent
· Use of personal e-mail account (You must use a U.K university e-mail account)
If you have any problems with posting casting calls please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject line “CASTING CALL NOT PUBLISHED”.
Paid / Expenses Paid
Castings will appear as “Paid or “Expenses”. Any castings that do pay, should pay at National Minimum Wage (NMW) and should follow the guidelines as below (rates are per hour).
Studentcasting.co.uk does anticipate that most of the castings will be expenses only, but we’ve displayed the (NMW) because students may not have realised that it could actually be quite affordable.
