Adding this from the Dos and Don'ts thread.
Please be aware that it is NOT a good idea to discuss specifics about any projects, auditions, callbacks, etc., on social networks, unless the production company has given you permission or instructed you to do so. It's best to always ask first for permission to speak freely about any projects, online or elsewhere! Specifics include the name of the project or product, time and location of the audition or project, and people's actual names who are involved.
More and more projects are now attaching a NDA/Non-Disclosure Agreement or CA/Confidentiality Agreement to their projects to be signed, due to the amount of information that is being discussed more openly on places like facebook, twitter and message boards like this one, before production is ready to release the information. Even if a NDA or CA is not signed, it is best not to say anything until the project information is officially released.
There are so many factors involved, i.e., spoilers, confidential marketing campaigns with time sensitive release dates, copyrights, confidential locations, privacy and security of actors, competing projects or companies, change in casting and search engines that can spread the written word like wildfire. The list goes on.
So, if you feel you have to say something and it is not listed for public viewing on an open casting site, printed in the trade papers, or already listed on IMDb, and you do not have permission from the production company, it’s best just to say, “Great news! I just booked or got a callback for a commercial (no product name) or major network drama or film (no title), but can’t say anymore, just yet. I'll keep you posted!” Then, when the project airs or is open for public discussion by permission of the production company, you can give more details.
