Anyone going today? Not sure the breakdown but if anyone knows please share. Toddlers today.
Just an FYI (because I made this mistake before) - it's better to wait on posting about a casting until it's over. Avoid crashers and an even bigger casting...
Pastina, good post. I also see very little value at this point because I think it can cause more harm than good. In addition to "crashers," parents who were not called might feel upset and contact their agents (which never seems like a great idea). Often unreliable information is posted to BBS in terms of breakdowns. Also, do we every REALLY know who agencies are asked to send?
I just politely ask (as did Pastina) to hold off on posting anything about future-castings until they happen. Then we can have as much dialogue as possible!!!
No problem but share your thoughts about this as well on the other 3 topics who posted before castings happened. Il gufo, babies r us, fashion show. This way they know too.
This is brought up quite often. I see no problem with posting about castings. It's not like the poster said "is anyone going to Chicco go-see today at 601 w. 26th, between 10am-2pm for toddlers 34"-38"??"
First of all, it is a request. Second of all, as I have said before, if people are that pathetic that they feel the need to crash castings that they see on backstage, then let them. That is really embarrassing and it will be even more so when they are told their name is not on the list or that their child does not fit the breakdown and they wasted a trip in. My child was requested because they think he might be a good fit. There is a reason why person X's child was not. It's not going to change anything if they crash it. If they ask their agent about it, that's their problem. Let them get on their agent's bad side, not our problem. Crashing go-sees is in poor taste, a waste of time, and a waste of money. I am not going to hold back if I have a question about a casting that has not yet been held just to prevent crashers, and other posters should not be made to feel bad for doing so. I know that's not your intention, but as you can see, then it turns into "if you're telling me, why didn't you say it on this thread and that thread...."
Kids, we will be there today though I am not sure of the breakdown. Chicco is usually specific though so as long as your agency has the correct height for your child, you should be fine!
Thank you thank you. I posted a few hours before the REQUESTED go see so if crashers show up then they are really good detectives. It's not like I posted days before. Good luck to all the kiddos.
I agree with NYmomoftwo! Really - who cares if crashers crash. It's their own wasted time (and I don't think it happens that often anyway). I would rather people be able to get any needed questions answered than worry about crashers
Well we will be there! My DS is 3!
I feel sorry for any crasher and their children who is that desperate to make it into town without a call or anything! They must be some miserable people who are desperate to book! Also this is a REQUEST, which means you either weren't the type/height/weight/hair color etc so don't waste your time and call your agency!
I agree with NYmomoftwo. If I need info about a casting like extended times that I can't seem to get from our agent or any other info, Im not going to tiptoe around parents on here and avoid posting. If your children didt get the call then there's a reason for it. No parent should be feeling bad and no one posting should have to feel guilty or think its taboo to post. And if crashers somehow figure out or find out thru others where a casting is, then go right ahead and crash. It'll only look bad for you and your children in the long run. These cd's cast all the time and it will make them remember you...but in a bad light.
Apologies for the double post.
Anyway, my Ds was not "requested" for this but I wish all the children requested best of luck!!
We'll be there this afternoon! GLTA!!!
Personally, I don't see the need to post about a go see beforehand anyway unless like EWmom said you might want to know extended times if you got the message after hours. Any questions you have should be answered by your agent/manager. What difference does it make what the breakdown is if your child was already requested?? Crashing doesn't make sense but I have seen parents bring siblings/friends that weren't requested and book the job too. So nothing really makes sense in this business.
I have to agree with you momto2kids. & I have seen kids who "crashed" book. At most "requests" there are so many kids and just a sign in sheet that im sure they really dont have time to compare who was requested and who wasnt-i have only been to 1 casting where they actually have the kids names on a list and cross them off as you arrive. Most important to me though is when there are extra people who werent requested or invited-it slows everyone else down! Who wants to wait at a casting for an hour before being seen!? not me lol
Anyways GLTA who are attending
I don't think there were any crashers lol when I got there at 1.10 pm we were the first ones! While there maybe another 10 kids arrived! Anyway good luck to all who attended my son was in a runaway mood so we are pretty much out on this one
