The title says it all.
This is an amazing website/app, BUT if you live in an area that is not popular in filming, for ex. I live in Detroit Mi area, and there is literally almost nothing on this app but around 65 productions, and not all apply to me. So it is very hard to find jobs to apply to. I had to set my radius of jobs to almost 200 miles just to find jobs. It’s very hard to find things unless you live in areas like NY, TN, LA, etc.
You can’t deselect your assets (audio, video, documents, etc) since this update. IE, If you are applying for something for which your audio reel is irrelevant, and you deselect your audio file without selecting a replacement, it will not let you “save” and continue with your application. Even if that asset is not required. Obnoxious.
I got this app enthusiastic to pursue my dreams in acting. But most, if not all, productions say “upgrade for additional information and/or instructions.” The thing is, what if I don’t upgrade? I’ll miss out on “additional information”? What if I’m required to know that additional information? Are you saying that without subscribing, I would be coming to the audition without knowing entirely what to do? Look, I understand why you guys need to make money. But seriously? Here’s a suggestion: maybe for people who haven’t subscribed just don’t show all the possible roles and productions available but show all information for the ones you DO include instead of leaving someone who isn’t subscribed completely confused? I would love this app. It has great potential. Just please do something about this and then it would be my #1. Edit: I did this review yesterday. I have some more news. My mom came to see to get me signed up for a production on her phone, (although not all the information was provided), and it said she needed to be subscribed! What the heck? Seriously! What. The. Heck???!!!
So far I like the app, I’m very new to acting and I don’t know what it means when asked ‘professional/working title’ do I put acting? Or what?
Prices are ridiculously high. Standard membership gets you no where. This company is a rip off.
Love the app! User-friendly, convenient, and a MUST for the working actor.
I find backstage very helpful for new actors & actresses looking to move there acting career to the next level.
Excellent!! Had so many offers and opportunities!! Mike
I’ve built my resume quite quickly thanks to this app.
