The Talent Database has a series of search fields and filters you can use to quickly narrow down results. Then you can easily view the profiles you’re interested in:
You can search for performers using filters such as age range, gender, location, and physical appearance; add performers to your production; or tag a performer, which will save their profile for later use.
If you happen to know the name of the actor you’re interested in, you can search for talent by name in the search bar at the top of the filters box.
If you’re looking for a certain type of actor you can filter by gender, age range, or ethnicity. By clicking on the “Advanced Filters” option, you’ll have even more filters at your disposal, including body type, hair color, eye color, and height range.
To select candidates in a particular location, select the “Location” menu — this will present a search field where you can type in and select the location of candidates. Then adjust the “Radius (miles)” to indicate how far outside of this area you’d like to see candidates.
For example, this selection is for actors within 50 miles of New York City:
By Asset and Union Status:
You can select one or more specific unions, all unions, or no unions from the “Union Status” dropdown:
You can also filter your search by a candidate’s available assets. You can select to see results from performers with headshots, video reels, audio clips, or some combination thereof.
You can use keywords to further refine your search. Use the Keywords search box in the filter bar to add a specific keyword, such as a particular skill, like “combat training” or “jazz dancing.”
Applying and Clearing Filters:
Once you‘ve selected your filter criteria, click the “Apply” button at the bottom of the filter bar.
To reset your selections, click “Clear”:
