Stonehenge Casting How-to: Uploading Headshot and Resume

Posted on July 18, 2013 by admin

We know many of you have created profiles at Stonehenge Casting.

However, for many of the profiles, we’ve noticed they’re missing the all-important headshot and resume.

Simply put: if you don’t have a headshot, casting people will ignore your profile.

In case you are one of those actors, here’s a couple tips to help you in uploading your headshot and resume onto the site.

First, make sure the file format and size are correct. Just in case you missed it on the Attachments page:

  • Headshot files need to end in .jpg, .jpeg, or .png and need to be 1mb or less (1,000k).
  • Resume files need to end in .doc, .docx, or .pdf and need to be 500k or less (0.5mb)

In addition, we are investigating a newly discovered issue when uploading a file with a long filename or with special characters — i.e. ( & _, etc.

We’re not sure if it’s either or both, but if you rename your files “headshot.jpg” or “headshot.jpeg” or “resume.pdf” as the case may be, that may do the trick. As you may have noticed, the system renames your files anyway.

(We’re looking into the exact root cause with our developers).

Second, as of version 0.3, you no longer need to upload both your headshot and resume at the same time. However, you do need to click the “Save” button for the new headshot or resume (or both) to be saved to your profile.

We hope you continue to find Stonehenge Casting useful.
