As many actors are aware, the Christmas season is one of the busiest few months in this industry. This is the time of year that Agents really see who their dedicated actors are. Who have consistent regrets for auditions, who is diligent with their availability emails, and what their actors landing ratios are compared to the number of auditions they have attended. Christmas season yields over 80 auditions a day most days and casting has a very hard time juggling several clients at the same time. Casting Directors tend to get lots of regrets from agents and they are working day and night to cast their final projects before shutting down for the season.
With this being said, at the end of the Christmas season, agencies tend to take this time to release actors from their rosters that have proven to be unreliable and inconsistent throughout the busy months.
Actors who dont get their Eco cast auditions uploaded on time or simply ignore them.
Actors who have back to back regrets due to personal errands etc.
Actors who forget to book out and leave for long vacations without notifying their agents.
Actors who dont take advantage of several workshops offered by directors to tweak their audition skills for the new year.
Actors who still have not updated their resumes or updated their casting profiles despite multiple requests.
It is a sad task for Agents to do their releases but a necessary one to ensure their team of actors are solid going into the new year.
It is even more upsetting to release talent who turn down multiple audition opportunities when there are actors out there that would die for an audition.
