If you would like to post a casting opportunity, please email details to the Michigan Film Office at mfo@michigan.org. Please indicate if your project is casting union or non-union talent.

For casting calls: Never go alone. Never agree to pay anyone anything for auditions or jobs. You should not be asked to pay to audition for an acting or extra job...EVER! The production company or individual is to pay you for your work. If anything ever seems questionable ask questions before signing up to do the work.

The MFO will only post unpaid Extras casting calls when the approved production has included NO Extras expense line in their Michigan budget. Please contact our office if you have any questions.
