This is the process that we go through to place artists on a production:
If a job comes in that we would like to suggest you for, we will first send you an availability enquiry through the site. This is not a confirmation of work, even if it seems like a very last-minute request
We request your full day and evening availability for each job, because overtime often occurs on shoots. There is generally a rate agreement for this, less often on commercials however.
Once selections have been made by the director, we will then either send you a 'Confirmed' or 'Released' email. Occasionally, you will be put 'on pencil'. This means that the production still need to confirm either the final performers, shoot date etc.
On the day prior to the fitting or shoot date, we will send you a 'check-in' email, which you must respond to. This is a reminder of all the details for the next day.
Be aware that some of these emails have a time limit by which we need a response.
