FOCUS talks to Luke Brady from Casting Networks

FOCUS talks to Luke Brady from Casting Networks, the leading provider of casting and audition management software to the Film & Television industry

Luke-Brady-Casting-NetworksWhat brings you and Casting Networks to FOCUS this year?

We really enjoyed last years event so when we heard that FOCUS 2018 is holding a Green Zone with our friends at AdGreen it seemed like a perfect fit for us.

What are you hoping to get out of the event and what in particular will you be promoting at FOCUS 2018?

Casting Networks has just launched a paperless casting system to cut the vast waste of paper that accumulates during the audition process. It’s not uncommon for a casting studio to go through 500-1000 sheets of paper per day! Alongside Richard Barker from Eden Studios in Manchester Casting Networks has developed a #paperlesscasting system that saved 5k pieces of paper in it’s first month at Eden Studios.

CN6Please tell us about Casting Networks and the services you offer productions.

Casting Networks was founded by Casting Director Beau Bonneau in Los Angeles 17 years ago. Beau developed a digital system to manage busy commercial castings and host auditions online. Last year our Co CEO’s Alex Amin & Rafi Gordon partnered with a group of investors and acquired Casting Networks and Cast It. Casting directors and agents worldwide use Casting Networks & Cast It to source and manage talent across film, television, digital and commercials projects facilitating over a million auditions per year.

What productions have used Casting Networks recently?

Our software is used worldwide by over 750 entertainment clients, including every major studio, talent agency and production company in North America.

CN2Please tell us more about your service and how it works?
