AUDITION WEBSITES:

ACTORS ACCESS
You wouldn't know it by looking at it, but this is the #1 most professional of all the casting sites. It's truly where the casting directors go - especially for anything filmed (film, tv, ads, etc). At the time of this writing, $68/year.

CASTING ELITE - FREE
Honestly, we don't know this one. As far as we can tell, this is free. We welcome your feedback!

STAR NOW
We're not sure if this is worth it or not. It's $4.99/month if you sign up for 6 months. It's very big in Australia.

CAST IT TALENT
Again, we don't know this one well. They have a free account which seems to have a submission fee, and a $19/month ($15 if yearly) that we wonder if it's worth it since more established sites exist.
