If you wanna act, and star your career, actors access is the way to go.
I just started using the app. It’s a really good app to have. Everything is right at your fingertips, now if I can just get a job. I’ll let you guys know the outcome.
The app has a good interface, a decent amount of users that make it simple to find auditions in your area. BUT you HAVE to subscribe for a fee to be able to apply to ANYTHING, even unpaid roles. Unfortunately, being an actor means paying a lot already out of pocket for things like headshots, travel, etc. I'd gladly pay like $5/month for the convenience of the app but $20/month just to apply to ANYTHING is kind of ridiculous, especially for unpaid roles which means you won't make back what you spent on the app to find an audition, let alone be cast. I'll keep this app in my back pocket for a future when I can afford it, but for now there are other resources available for the same purpose and a cheaper price. Additionally, maybe it's just me, but it didn't seem clear initially that you needed a subscription to be able to apply for ANYTHING. It wasn't until after I filled out my profile, scrolled through the listings, and found something of interest that I found out you cannot apply to anything without a subscription. At this point I just don't see the cost equalling the value of the app unless MAYBE you're in an area with a high concentration of jobs. Sorry to the developers, I know you need to make money too and it really seems like a good app, I just simply can't afford it.
You have to have it. Period.
I downloaded “Backstage”, for not even a full month. Browsing through, reading “applications” trying to keep up with the qualifications since I’m a beginner and used this app as my first step. Today, finally I “subscribed” to a monthly agreement thinking they were all the same just longer timing meaning more money., So I said why not try the 19.99 subscription so I can see were it goes... I’m still not able to apply to any of these jobs and I’m upset because I was really excited about this app and the fact I invested my money and received nothing is a total rip off and I would love a refund.
II’ve been a subscriber for several years and have been enjoying the app for quite a while! Up until recently it was working great. I just found a call back on my laptop that was nowhere to be found on my iOS app. And now a week later I’m sitting here with egg on my face with a Director and a producer who think I am a flake now. I realize it’s technology and I am going to call customer support. But please fix this!
It’s amazing app!! Especially if you’re just starting out!!
I have canceled this subscription three times and they continue to steal $19.99 from me every month! I guess I’ll have to change my credit card to get rid of you!
I wish I spent $75 and actually got 1 audition!
Went to sign up for the app, payed $100 for it and all of a sudden it then says I never signed up and that I need to sign up again, whether it was on accident or they are too stupid to create an app to recognize payments that were already paid makes it a 0 star for me if I could, so I’ll just settle with a 1 star.
