“I know the Backlot team and this is awesome. They’ve thought of everything. Their app will be the industry standard for self taping”

Chris Grismer, Director/Producer of The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Designated Survivor

“The truth is self-tapes really are more important than ever. More often than not, directors and producers are not in the casting sessions, so it is almost an even playing field whether the actor goes on tape in our office, their hotel in Vancouver, or home in NY. We receive more self-tapes than ever before and they are being viewed and considered more than ever. Self-taping is a necessity for us these days. Looking forward to this. Congrats Backlot! It’s a well timed & great idea!”

Wendy O'Brien, Casting Director of Sons of Anarchy, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Fear the Walking Dead
We talked to casting directors, agents, managers, producers, directors, studio execs, and of course, actors. We wanted to develop the best way to send and receive auditions so everyone is happy.
