COVID-19 Update

Posted by Michelle Swink on 03/19/2020



MAGNA Talent Agency is monitoring the COVID-19 situation and implementing some health precautions.

In an effort to ensure the welfare of our team, our clients and our community, we are currently on limited business hours and switching our operations to remote work.

Many projects have been postponed indefinitely and some audition and production dates may be subject to change. We might not receive casting notices for productions talent had previously auditioned for until these uncertain times come to pass. We will, however, send out any updates as we do receive them.

Business has definitely slowed down, but we are still here and will continue to send casting calls, submit video auditions, update materials, and send out payments as we receive them and as quickly as possible. Things are not at a complete stand-still and many clients/casting directors will be accepting video auditions during these times.

During the slow moments, we are looking at different ways we can serve you better and make the most of this temporary hiatus. With so many people avoiding public exposure until things settle, our focus is on helping you build your craft and continue preparing for your next big job.

On the bright side, this down-time is a great time for talent to make sure all materials and profiles are up-to-date! Double-check AgencyPro, Casting Networks and Actor’s Access… update your resume… work on your self-taping techniques… scour the web for more resources and free classes/workshops!

We are still monitoring messages daily and will respond as quickly as possible! Just remember that things might be slow right now, but once this pandemic has ended we anticipate an explosion of activity in the industry!

In the meantime, let’s all do our best to stay healthy, hopeful and creatively inspired. Please take care of yourselves and each other! We’ll all get through this together!
