Do you call for cast?

Ask for entrants? Are you trying to find quiz nuts? Need an audience?

Are you tired of manually filtering through applications, searching through files, drives, email chains, and chasing updates?

Are you ready to keep everything in one place so you’re not constantly chasing paperwork?

Are you ready to get a clearer picture of your potential cast?

Are you ready for a more visual, more intuitive, and more user-friendly platform for applicants AND producers?

Lumi is the answer to “things you wish a casting system could do”.

Lumi worked really well for us whilst casting Love Island Series 7.

It enabled us to bring our casting boards to life and works incredibly well working remotely with our casting team and presenting to the Exec and Network team.

Their visual boards are just like whiteboards but they look and work so much better.

We tracked our cast through our shortlisting process and it was fantastic to have all our casting cards in one virtual place.

If we aren’t in Lumi from the moment we meet them with our eyes we are wasting time and information.

Digby Mitchell - Executive Producer - Australia's Got Talent - Fremantle Australia

Using Lumi was a joy and it worked exactly as we needed it to on the road.

It collated and captured all the information as we had hoped and in my opinion, it has made the casting process very efficient.

There are seemingly obvious things to look out for like making sure a diverse, balanced range of people are cast in terms of ethnicity, gender, age etc. But what else do casting producers have on their checklist? Here are some of the top tips for getting the balance as close to perfect as possible.

‘If it ‘ain’t broke, don’t fix it’?

Why do so many of us insist on sticking to the old ways?  Because it’s safe? Easier? Convenient?  Because we’re afraid to rock the boat? The cost of thinking ‘it’s almost right, so it’ll do for now’ is that you’re losing money, time, and the competition is speeding ahead of you. Having the courage to try something new makes better business sense. That’s a good enough reason to break out of the “comfort zone”.
