This section is for those who are interested in submitting to Breakaway Talent and Casting Inc.  We are hoping that this section will answer most of your questions while giving you a little bit of background on us at the same time!

Question:  What types of promotional opportunities do you have?

Answer:   We have two sides of our business;  one specializing in models and the other in actors for TV and Film.  We generally book a wide variety of models for different assignments such as  tradeshows, conventions, grand openings, in-store demonstrations, night club promotions; the possibilities are endless.   For a more complete list, you may take a look at our Services section within this website.

As far as acting opportunities go, we place both Union and Non –Union talent.  While we cast mostly background for TV, Film, and Music Videos, we do some principal casting as well.  We will be adding more information about acting opportunities in the near future, so be on the lookout!


Question:  Where are you located?  Where are the opportunities?

Answer:  We are primarily located in Los Angeles with some satellite offices in major markets throughout the United States.  We have talent coast to coast  so it is worthwhile to apply, even if you are from a smaller city or rural area.   Projects can occur in all parts of the USA.  For example, this past year we completed projects in Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Arizona, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, Nevada, and, of course, California.  Who knows? Our next major project could be in your neighborhood!


Question:  Are there any restrictions on who can apply to your agency?

Answer:  Yes.  First of all, you must be 18 years of age or older to work with us.  Beyond this, while it is suggested that you have experience in the promotional industry or as an actor, we also will take a look at people new to the industry.  We ask that the photos you submit are of good quality and that you send headshots as well as full body shots.  We also require a resume that is at least reflective of your interest in promotional modeling and/or acting, even if you haven’t yet worked professionally.  


Question:  Does Breakaway Talent and Casting Inc. take a portion of my paycheck?  Is there a yearly fee to join your agency? 

Answer:  These are valid questions.  No, we do not take a portion of your paycheck.   Together we agree upon an hourly wage for the project and you are compensated based upon that agreement. 

Unlike many Background Casting Agencies, you don’t pay a yearly fee to register with us.   So, if we accept you, registration is completely free. You will be booked based upon type and experience.  And, again, you will get 100% of your paycheck.


Question:    What happens if I have booked a job and it turns out I can’t do it?

Answer:  As an independent Contractor, you have the option of accepting and declining our projects.  However, once you have accepted a job, we feel that it is your responsibility to follow through on your commitment.   In the case of a dire emergency, we have a special number for you to contact us.    Reliability is highly valued at Breakaway Talent and Casting Inc.

If you have additional questions that haven’t been answered above, please feel free to contact us at and we’ll do our best to get back to you as soon as possible.
