Communication!

Hi everyone!
Things have been really busy at the office these days. We have been casting and booking like crazy. The sad thing is that some of you should be booking, and it is because you are not communicating with us that you are not booking. For example, I had a $2000.00 day SPRINT casting that was only requesting 4 people. Two of the models showed up and the other two did not. Long story short is that of the two models they chose, one is not available to do the job ont he date it is shooting, and the two other women that did not show up or call would have booked the job, but flaked out.
Try to remember that not every casting is a cattle call. In this instance of casting directors, they have already preselected you with their client, so if we call you for a big print casting DO NOT MISS IT! You are just shooting yourself in the foot. Not to mention giving your agency a very bad impression of your character.
I know that most of you are really good about keeping us posted, but many of you think that if you do not hear from us that we are not submitting you, and you are completely wrong.
We are submitting you every minute of every day!
There is not a day that goes by that I do not personally look at your photo, and there is not a day that goes by that I do not see when you decline castings, or go to castings.
Keep this in mind when you wonder why some people book all of the time. I am looking for people that I know can work, it makes all of our jobs much easier!
Thanks!
Have a great week!
Natasha
