Book hundreds of background actors in a snap.
Castifi is the industry's leading end-to-end booking system for casting background actors. With Castifi, you can get out of spreadsheets and emails so you can focus on creating the best scene.
When you create a role on Castifi, we automatically generate a shareable link that you can paste anywhere. This way, if your current database doesn’t have what you’re looking for, you can widely advertise the role without having to manually type out the job details again.
Easily filter applicants with our “Preboarding Gallery”. You can sort submissions by role, move applicants through rounds, and when ready, trigger an onboarding email prompting them to complete their profile and join your database.
Need to backfill a spot at the last minute? Our search module also allows you to find users based on their location, down to the mile. Face it, your odds of booking someone at 6am are a lot higher if they live 2 blocks from your set!
Send availability requests for your project in a single click. When you do, users will receive the basic details of the job and are able to update their availability in seconds. This way, you get a list of available actors in real-time allowing you to organize your project faster.
When you input the details of a role, our software gets everything it needs to find matching actors in our database. Tell us how many people you’re looking for and the ethnicity ratio you want to work with, and Castifi will reach out to actors automatically from there.
(Currently in beta testing.)
With our interactive gallery, clients can view actor’s profiles and make their selects in the platform so you get notified the moment they choose an actor. No more unnecessary, messy email chains and major time saver as deadlines loom.
Last minute schedule change? Need to find someone who can drive a vintage motorcycle within your cast? Whether it’s vital information or just handy, our platform lets you send text messages and emails to your cast with a simple click directly from your phone, computer, or tablet.
Ratings and Reviews
For every completed job, our cast and crew receive a rating and review. In addition, Castifi provides background checks for production companies that work with sensitive talent, minors, or just anyone that wants total peace of mind. Making sure you are hiring the right person every time.
