STATUS: OPEN

We are a Vancouver based production company, currently building our casting directory, and we are looking for people from all age groups, experience, skills, gender, body type and nationality.
Our projects include small digital content projects, PSA’s, and documentaries, and are mostly based in Vancouver, Lower Mainland or British Columbia.
To actors or aspiring actors: we are not a casting or talent agency, and we are not trying to be a replacement to the representation you already have. They will find you the real work and you should stick with them! In the case of our casting a commercial project, we will be going through a casting director, and can give them your information through regular channels at that time.
This is mostly for newcomers who are building reels and gaining experience in small roles or as extras. Or just having fun and getting paid for it.
Yes our jobs are paid (except possibly in the case of some PSA’s).
By entering this directory, you are agreeing to be contacted by us when a project that requires actors/extras becomes available, in case your application matches any needed criteria for future casting calls. After the registration process, you will receive a unique link that will let you edit your profile anytime.
If you lost your private link please use this form to have it send it back to you.
If you want to leave the database please send an email to backlotmedia.casting@gmail.com with your name, surname and the email address you used for the registration process. 
You acknowledge and agree that Backlot Media does not guarantee that you or any other applicant will be selected for use as a background performer/actor/extra in any production. 
We may augment, change, suspend, modify or discontinue any aspect of the directory at any time without notice to you. We are not a talent agency and do not collect fees of any kind from the user.
IF YOU ARE A MINOR, DO NOT SUBMIT AN APPLICATION TO THE COMPANY UNLESS YOU HAVE THE CONSENT AND INVOLVEMENT OF YOUR PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN.
