Question- I’m already a Coney Actor, do I need to resubmit?
Answer- If you are a lead/supporting character and you filmed during the Demo process then you do not need to reapply. If you cannot continue in your role please let us know. However, if you were Background and/or were originally cast but could not make the filming days and were replaced then you do need to reapply so that we know you are still interested and so we have up to date info on you. Background please let us know what scenes you were in such “Opera House”. Please do not send any info via facebook or thru other emails. Only send to ConeyExtras@hotmail.com and tell all your friends to LIKE our Official Facebook Page so that it will look good to the Networks and of course follow the show’s progress! We want to keep this show in Virginia!
Question- Why are we submitting if a Network hasn’t picked up the show yet?
Answer- We anticipate that a Network will pick up the show sometime in July/August and we want to be ready to start casting actors and filming how many ever episodes they order. Any actual casting calls that we have union rules will be in affect!
ps. Do Not send videos at this time!
Please note that you may not get a response right away from an actual casting director, but we are collecting your info and if we think you fit a role that we will be casting for, we will definitely let you know. Anyone applying to be just Background or a Speaking Role or Background needs to specify that they are willing to accept Background on the show. Currently, the show is being produced as a SAG-Aftra Demo and will be pitched to various Networks for possible pick up. During our Demo phase, all Background was used, however, SAG-Aftra rules may apply once Network picks up more episodes, so please do not show up to set unless you are specifically asked to be Background for a particular day’s shoot. Please make sure this email address is saved in your contacts! Also, make sure that you followed the casting instructions properly or your submission may be thrown out.
