  • Masks


    Exclusive access to auditions, industry mentors and a community of other actors and fillmmakers.

  • Creator

    An opportunity to introduce yourself as a creator (writer, director, producer, casting director) to the Film & TV industry.

The source of our inspiration.

We created The Slate because we wanted to create a “clean” version of casting, free from all of the clutter, the background work, and the “noise.” We also wanted to create a home base for artists who take acting and filmmaking seriously and are now looking to produce their best work. In order to see what it's like on the set of one of our productions, visit our production gallery.

What makes us different.

Here's how we've created a better version of casting.

  • Casting Calls

    Before auditioning for a role, you’ll know a lot about the writer, the director, the business goals of the production, and the character you’re auditioning for.

  • Auditioning

    Slate actors often meet the filmmakers they audition for through live zoom “town hall” events, allowing us to gather for a Q&A session before auditions.

  • Talent

    Most of the films casting on The Slate are written by experienced WGA (Writers Guild of America) screenwriters and shot by filmmakers with a track record. With the help of successful screenwriter and producer Leilani Downer (THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR, Netflix’s JULIE AND THE PHANTOMS), The Slate pursues creative partnerships with writers we admire, ensuring that every role cast on our site is designed to inspire you with a good story while advancing your career.
