3- Tell the casting personnel when you attend a call or open audition that you are a member of EFM. EFM is known all over the world and if the members spread the word and let casting people know that there is great talent on EFM, then the world would get around and more casting personnel will request our members for projects. And that could be you!
4- Keep your web page profile updated and make sure it looks the best it can be. Casting people are looking at your page in order to make a decision if you are someone they want to see. So be sure to check that your photos are the best that you have talents and abilities’ listed, training, introduction and all the other components that make up your profile page.
5- Visit the forums often, check the posted auditions, leave us a post about how an audition turned out, any questions you may have, how the forum helps you, any casting calls you hear about or just insightful information that you would like to share with the others members here. This helps EFM and members when we share our successes, help, suggestions and stories.

Once you have completed or updated your PROFILE on the talents and abilities section. Please be sure to do a search for yourself and look at your thumbnail and your profile to be SURE that it displays properly.
Also, do a search by visiting our search page. Do a search using the words you added for talent, abilities and characteristics you possess to be sure you show up.
Be SURE you come up in a search for those talents from the search page of the site. If you do NOT come up in those searched, go back to your profile and enter your abilities’, save and then search again from the search page until you do.
The new casting database is a powerful resource for casting personnel and a terrific benefit to the people displaying on the site. So take the time to create the BEST web page for casting seeking members for their projects.
NOTE: The staff POLICE the site(s) often and if your profile is not up to par, it will be updated or deleted.

Use your link even if you attach photos for an audition submission, often times an email will not download or display photos properly, so if you have your Handmealine.com or Extrasformovies.com profile page link in the email, the casting person has an opportunity to click on it to visit your page.

You are being given a free opportunity to have your own web page, so please use it create it wisely to keep it on line. You never know who will see and request you.

(Open Casting Call )–Females only! Any Kind of Look. Required you fit the type, completely. Your age is 27 at least or min to the male partner who is 40 in age or that your near to or much older.
Need a gal whom is real, and whom has dated or been envolved w/older guys if she is younger in wide age in-differences. Or if she is much older by even 60′s is fine also. The idea here, is you actually dated a guy either in real life wide age in-difference or your actually near to this age he is.
Your look is not an issue. This movie is a very large budgeted, major film for Imax Theater releasing and Mann Theaters worldwide disturbed by Universal. Big billed stars and it’s an action movie.
Only this is the bio;
This couple is out touring New York and a spy dumps his PC tiny chip of secret info into a ladies bag which it’s you that this happens to. You unaware, head off into various places with not only Federal agents following you tracking this chip but the spy’s that try to kidnap you in various places. So much so that allot of action takes place right around you and your partner “where ever” you two go, but ” you both are not aware ever” of whats happening. And your hired as background/s.a.g vouchered in non-dailogue form. Simply as extras but actually leading characters in this 007 style movie. Made by the producers of the epic films as we have known so well. So, you see it’s very intense.
You will be treated as the leads all thru the entire feature by production.
Key here is your description. Please read carefully.
-(Ema); She is very physically aggressive appearing as if she is turned-on by this guy. Always studying his body so much that it shows upon her face. see just where she is looking all the time in her eyes obviously while she is talking to him. This is ” all ” the time through the entire movie. It will tease our thoughts in play.
We are continiously reminded that she is always thinking about his body, in ‘ want ‘ of him. She continuiously shows interest in his figure even while walking, w/him, seated or anywhere. She is never stopping in being a tease upon him. She dresses to try/attempt to turn-him on either by actions or very provatively dressed mostly in very casual wear. –End/description.
That is your description. And remember that casting will only select those whom are this, by nature, real-life so that act is not such ” as-an-act ” required by the director of the film. Mandatory!
Send a lengthy reply with cell phone photo of just your face. The is no resume or credits needed. Just be as descripted by detail. Send your phone along w/info to; Celine, karen or Judy in casting via email.
