Types of Michigan Auditions

As any business professional does, you need to smell out the money and figure out who has a budget to pay you. Michigan Casting Calls have (2) distinct categories: ‘open’ Michigan Auditions (like cattle calls) and ‘closed’ Michigan Auditions (you are actually going to be booked). Most ‘open’ Michigan Auditions are publicity stunts. The actual models/actors have already been booked or due to poor planning, they failed to allocate a budget for talent and are trying to get talent to work for free. Research, research, research the Michigan Auditions before attending. Learn as much about who is hosting the Michigan Audition and the reputation of the client for Michigan Auditions. Detroit fashion, acting and creatives is a very small niche group of people – everyone knows everyone. Once you begin to meet other industry professionals, you will learn which Michigan Movie Auditions are worth your time and which Michigan Auditions are a waste.

Michigan Acting Auditions:

A tax credit passed by the State of Michigan brought in over 100 movies for filming over the past three years. Mainstream actors have been relocating for Michigan Auditions and the large amount of work available in A-­‐list films. Michigan TV Auditions and industry professionals were outraged this last year that the State of Michigan cut significant funding for this job-­‐booming incentive. Film and production studios have already been constructed to meet the high demand for Michigan Acting Auditions and film work is still available. Michigan residents hope the budget will restore soon for Michigan Auditions and more Hollywood films.

Michigan Modeling Auditions:

Your goal should be to grab any and all local work through Michigan Auditions; just like in a 9-­‐5 job, you are building a resume. With a few commercials, movies and print work, your transition into a larger market (like New York, LA) will be much easier and you will be prepared. Somerset Collection is one of the only profitable runway clients in Michigan Auditions. Moosejaw, Somerset Collection, Pure Michigan [campaign], Carhart, Art Van, Roma Sposa [bridal], GM, Ford, Chrysler – this is a short list of Michigan-­‐based companies who ‘do’ hire their talent through Michigan Auditions. These companies have needs for print work, commercials and runway, of which they use Michigan Modeling Auditions to book strong talent for strong advertisement pieces.
