Casting Calls, Casting Calls and More Casting Calls

- Casting Calls, Casting Calls and More Casting Calls -

 

It’s been a very busy year, so far, here at MAGNA Talent Agency. We are sending out casting calls to our talent nearly every single day!

 

Occasionally we receive messages from our talent stating that they are not receiving any casting calls and wondering what is going on! Sometimes we have an influx of casting calls for children and teens, and talent in other age groups are wondering what is going on. Other times the opportunities for these young talent are running dry and the older folks are seeing all the casting calls come pouring in. We really never know what our clients are looking for until they contact us, but casting calls are going out all the time!

 

Chances are, if you are represented by MAGNA and you are NOT receiving weekly casting calls, our emails could be being blocked without you even realizing it! Many email and Internet companies are using programs to spam. Sometimes these programs block email you do want to get, like MAGNA’s casting calls! Sometimes, when we are sending casting calls to groups of actors, it gets mistaken as spam.

 

 

Please do the following…

 

Add both [email protected] AND [email protected] to your email whitelist, or safe-sender list, because this gives you the best chance of receiving our casting calls and other important notices.

 

Every email system is different and if the below solutions don’t work, please contact your ISP or email provider.
