(June 1, 2016) AUDITIONIST is a unique and free cloud casting solution. Proven in commercials and online content, they facilitate the whole casting process online, from requesting and viewing showreels and selftapes through to direct payments to actors.

Auditionist has successfully cast for high profile commercials and online content including Carlsberg, Virgin EMI and Global. In its beta, the company has been involved with hundreds of productions, enabling it to refine the audition and payment processes to offer maximum value and savings to its clients. Joel Maguet of Trigger Buzz says “Auditionist is easy to use and makes casting for productions faster and more efficient. The actors we’ve cast have all been prompt and professional.”

Auditionist now launches fully at the Media Production Show on June 9th-10th, making its services available to a growing list of satisfied production companies. The full solution can be viewed on Stand 111 at the show.

Co-founder Will Crosthwait said “On Auditionist, we have a rapidly growing group of professional actors that productions can audition via their showreel or using a selftape to a custom script. Using Auditionist it takes productions an average of 25 minutes combined time to fill a role.”

His co-founder Ben Albahari, co-author of best selling ‘C# in a Nutshell’ Series added, “Our streamlined tech and ultra-responsive customer service is creating a new standard in casting platforms.”

In addition to video casting on desktop and mobile, Auditionist provides single payments for unlimited actors with itemised invoices, POs and expenses. Albahari continued, “we really wanted to capture the entire process and make each step easier for productions.”

The Media Production Show will take place on 9 and 10 June 2016 at the Business Design Centre in Islington. It will encompass services and technology used in preproduction, production and post. Auditionist will provide demos and offer the chance to meet some of their actors on Stand 111.
