This is a MUST READ for anyone in the business of auditioning/working on-camera. Here are the new Guidelines from the CCDA:

AUDITIONING IN A POST-COVID WORLD

June 8, 2020

Dear Actors and Agents,

The Commercial Casting Directors Association (CCDA) and many of the independent casting facility operators have been working together to describe what the audition process might look like for the Los Angeles area talent pool in the coming weeks and months. THESE GUIDELINES COULD CHANGE OR BE ALTERED AT ANY TIME. We hope that ALL TALENT will review this document before auditioning:

1. IF YOU DON’T FEEL WELL, STAY HOME.
If you are having any symptoms that seem unusual for you, stay home. What you think might be allergies, could be the beginning of a COVID infection. Don’t take a chance. If you are feverish, have body aches, a headache, chills, or any other symptoms of COVID-19, please stay home.

2. BE ON TIME.
Casting Directors will be having smaller sessions and will most probably have to audition people one at a time. If you confirm an appointment, be on time for that appointment. Each Casting Director may have a different procedure as to how to sign in or notify the lobby person that you are there…regardless of the individual variations, your being on time is vital.

3. YOU MAY BE ASKED TO SIGN A WAIVER OF LIABILITY.
Some facilities may ask you to sign a document stating that you are in good health to the best of your knowledge. This may be a virtual document.

4. YOUR TEMPERATURE MAY BE TAKEN UPON YOUR ARRIVAL.
Some studios may take your temperature before your entrance or they may ask to take your temperature should they feel you are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 once you are inside the facility.

5. YOU MAY NOT BE ALLOWED INTO THE FACILITY IMMEDIATELY.
The occupancy of each facility will be closely monitored. This may result in you waiting outside the casting facility or in your car.

6. THE NORMAL SIGN IN PROCEDURE MAY NOT TAKE PLACE.
Both union and non-union jobs may dispense with normal sign-in protocols. The CCDA is working with SAG to establish a mechanism to sign in that keeps the risk of transmission to a minimum.

7. WEAR A MASK.
You will not be allowed into any facility unless you are wearing a mask. You will take the mask off in the studio, but not in the lobby or the waiting area. Should you take your mask off before you enter the audition studio, you may be asked to leave.

8. READ POSTED INSTRUCTIONS AT THE CASTING FACILITY.
Since rules/guidance may be different from one location to another, please read the instructions posted in the lobby to learn of the expectations of that facility upon your arrival.

9. KEEP SOCIAL DISTANCE THROUGHOUT YOUR TIME AT THE CASTING FACILITY.
Each facility is different and at some casting facilities keeping social distance will be challenging. However, we ask that you do your best to stay at least 6 feet away from everyone at all times. Watch for markings on the floor to help you maintain social distancing.

10. FACILITIES WILL PROVIDE HAND SANITIZER. USE IT.
It is the intention of all facilities to have appropriate sanitizers available to talent. If you touch something, make sure you use the sanitizer immediately. If you would feel more comfortable wearing gloves, wear them.

11. BATHROOMS MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE.
The health issues surrounding bathroom usage may outweigh the desire for access to this amenity. Bathrooms may well be locked and not accessible to talent (this will be a decision made by each facility).

12. WATER FOUNTAINS MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE.
Each facility will make its own determination, but talent should not presume that drinking water will be available.

13. COME CAMERA READY.
You may not have the opportunity to fix your hair or makeup upon arrival. Read the description of the character carefully before you get to the studio and arrive ready to enter the audition room.

14. BRING YOUR OWN PROPS.
Should an audition call for props that can’t be pantomimed, bring your own. No sharing of props will be allowed.

15. ONLY ONE PARENT/GUARDIAN CAN BE WITH A CHILD.
Facilities can no longer allow more than onw adult to come into the space with a child. If siblings are auditioning, the 1 parent/guardian rule still applies. Siblings do not need 2 parents/guardians. Remember: bathroom facilities may not be offered.

16. STROLLERS MAY NOT BE ALLOWED IN THE FACILITIES.
If you are bringing an infant or a toddler to an audition, please check to see if strollers will be allowed at the facility. If there is a restriction, prepare to walk or carry the child in.

17. PARENT/GUARDIAN MUST HAVE TOTAL CONTROL OF CHILDREN WHO ARE AUDITIONING.
Kids coloring or playing in the waiting room will not be allowed. Parents/Guardians must maintain contact and control of their child or children in the waiting room.

18. SITTING AREAS MAY NOT BE PROVIDED.
Talent may be asked to stand from the moment they arrive until they enter the audition space. This may be challenging for some of the talent. Actors with disabilities who require seating will be accommodated. Having seating for those waiting to audition will be determined by each facility but is not guaranteed.

19. STAFF IN THE AUDITION ROOM WILL BE MASKED OR WEAR A FACIAL SHIELD.
Casting Directors or their Associates will be masked or wearing a facial shield and will stay over 6 feet away from all talent. Actors should stand on their mark and wait for instructions.

20. FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO EXIT THE AUDITION SPACE.
Depending upon the facility, there may be an exit that is not the same as the entrance that was used. Casting Directors or their Associates will explain the exit procedure to you as you leave the audition.

21. PLEASE FIND OUT THE PRACTICES OF THE FACILITY YOU ARE GOING TO BEFORE YOU ARRIVE FOR YOUR AUDITION.
If possible, know the procedures before you arrive.

We look forward to getting back to work and will do our best to make you comfortable so that you can give us your best audition.

The Board of Directors of the Commercial Casting Directors Association

If you have some $ to give to this PUP......any amount will help. She's in her 2nd surgery today.
PAYPAL.ME/ThisIsHoustonTX
This is such a positive story for a Puppy that would not have a chance if it weren't for these Rescue Angels. My sister in Texas has known them for over 5yrs and sees the work they do....I've been to THE CORRIDOR...it's horrid...quite the dumping ground for animals...and abuse. I DONATED !!!

Wilma is fixable! 👏🏼🥳

Her pain meds have worn off so our vet could do an appropriate exam. He pinched her toes and she could feel it, so she’s got deep pain sensation AND reflex. He does believe she will walk again!

She’s got fractures in her back at one implate where her growth plate is. Since she’s a puppy, she’s got ossified bone (like cartilage), so this makes her injuries repairable. If she were an adult dog, she likely wouldn’t be able to be surgically corrected.

He’s going to do surgery on her back this weekend, which will take about 3 hours. Then he’ll correct her back legs Monday or Tuesday. Too much anesthesia for a dog can be dangerous.

This is why we get second opinions. This is why we don’t always euthanize them right away. We are way too familiar with dogs hit by cars, and this is why we primarily focus on intaking these types of dogs; because so many others do not have the experience or resources we do, and proceed with euthanizing. We truly hope to give others hope when it comes to dogs hit by cars. ❤️
