Reebok recently came to Sports Studio looking for an athlete to be in a photo shoot. While searching our database they noticed that many of our members do not have complete profiles filled out and because of this it limited the number of people that they could even consider choosing for the photo shoot. Sports Studio is positive we could have filled the role they needed if all of our members had…
When decision makers look at the website they need to know what each person looks like. When they choose who they want to cast in their projects they need to know if you fit the bill for what they are looking for. The more pictures a Sports Studio member has the better their chances are of being cast. Pictures not only of what you look like are important, both headshot and body shot wise, but so are action shots of the sports you play. These action shots prove to the decision maker that you can authentically portray a certain sport.

Alex Weber – Recently cast as a baseball extra on Flashforward
Personal and Athletic Information
Reebok came to us with specifics they were looking for in the Personal and Athletic Information sections. Without these sections completely filled out they could not get a good read on the people they wanted to cast for the project! That includes everything from location to full athletic information. Without a location on your profile you may not come up in a search around a certain area and without the right athletic information they won’t know what you have actually played.
Having video of your skills in the sports you excel at is always a plus. They want to see how you move on camera because that is what they are casting you for!
A major reason complete profiles are needed is because some jobs come in the door quickly and need to be filled right away. When a production team is looking for talent they need as much information as possible as quickly as possible in order to choose the right person they are looking for. Without the right information or a picture they cannot even consider you!
Get your profiles up to date! Get pictures up! Next time a job comes in the door maybe your profile might catch the eye of the production team!
