Starnow maybe?

Although I think your best bet would be an agency.

Presumably you are looking for acting auditions. In which case you might want to check out sites like

mandy.com & shootingpeople.org

Or try joining Spotlight or PCR

Or buy the odd copy of The Stage.



Good Luck
Dave

Try applying for Mad Dog Castings. I got an interview with them and you're in a much better location for getting to their auditions.

It depends on whether you want to try and go straight into featured work.

Mad Dog and Casting Collective are both good for getting background extra work - which might be just being one of a crowd in a brief music video shot, or something much more.

One lad I was working with on a current Warner Brothers film was booked as an extra (along with 300+ other extras) but the production team liked his look and he ended up with a credited role. That was on his first ever production with no acting training or experience.

A lot of it is about being in the right place at the right time, work as a background extra etc can at least help with the right place part of it...

Star now definitely.I find it far more useful than modelling sites.

That reminds me they said I can have unlimited pictures, off to update.

Casting Call Pro is also very useful.

www.castingcallpro.com

I recently worked with a couple of voice over artists, who I found via one of their satellite sites.

Thank you all for your tips ! What I am looking to do is getting into driving side of things on film, kinda stunt stuff, as driving being my thing

I think to do stunt stuff you have to be a qualified stunt person and be part of their union/ association. You need more than one skill driving being one of them. I think you need something like 4 out of 6. I can do fight stuff and have some film training but can't call myself a stunt person.Other things are fighting ,jumping from heights, swimming, diving. You might find some driving stuff, I have done some extra fighting stuff, but might be worth looking into proper stunt training.
