March 31, 2011 (Newswire.com) - San Francisco, - Casting360, the premier online resource for entertainment industry casting, today unveiled new features that enables casting professionals and available talent to interact in real-time, and link their audition and casting call activities to their Facebook and Twitter pages.
Launched in September 2010 with more than 100,000 talented experienced and amateur actors, models and entertainers in its database, Casting360 is a completely free industry resource dedicated to bringing the entertainment industry together with available talent. Created with actual feedback from accomplished casting directors, filmmakers and television network professionals, the site was designed to address their unique needs. Today, the client base has grown to 150,000 and, every month, hundreds of new casting directors and producers are using Casting360 to source talent to find talent for feature films, reality TV, commercials, print advertising and extras casting.
Casting360's new Wall of Fame (http://casting360.com/wall.php) is a completely user-generated profile page that, much like Facebook, invites sharing of experiences and advice, as well as developing communities among like-minded members. With over 300 networked sharing options, and the ability to instantly "like" on Facebook, Casting360 members can now expand their personal and professional circles, gaining even greater exposure and connections.
"As Casting360 grows, we strive to consistently evolve and offer as many services as possible to help our members and industry professionals connect. We see social networking interconnectivity as an important and vital direction for us and the Wall of Fame is a valuable community resource our members are now integrating daily with their existing social network pages."
Casting360 will be rolling out several more new social networking initiatives and features in 2011, adding cutting-edge media tools, search functionality and greater resources for both its member base and the entertainment industry professionals who already depend upon Casting360 to get the word out and fill their casting calls. Additionally, Casting360 will be launching a brand new web property later this year that promises to take the concept of "15 minutes of fame" to another level...and will bring true celebrity within the grasp of anyone with an Internet connection!
