Here's to a more prosperous year in the entertainment industry!

Holiday Slow Down

The holiday slow down is in full effect right now. Except for a few projects, most productions are down until the week of January 4th. (As always, still block out if you are not available.)

We will be closed for Christmas Day and New Years Day. Other than just those two days, we will be in the office. Without specifics, we may have limited office hours over the next two weeks depending on how busy (or slow) the casting directors are. And as always, even if we are not physically in the office, we are still on call for casting.

AFTRA card on file

Are you a paid up AFTRA member? Have you gone to Central to show them your card yet?

Central now likes to have paid up AFTRA members go over to update their files in person to show the card. (While you're at it, it's always good to do a photo update too!)

In general, clients are less likely to be booked by Central on AFTRA jobs if they have not gone over to show their card to update their Central file.

Marking off for the holidays

Just a reminder, make sure to mark off for the upcoming holidays. As always, never assume that you won't be working just because the industry slows down for the holidays, so please remember to give us ladies in the office a call if you need to block out for any days.

Pet Names

Just for fun, from 10/29/09 to 11/30/09 we kept track of all the pet names we were called here in the office. These came from clients and casting. Enjoy!

PS: Honey was the CLEAR winner. (thanks JJ)
