Stonehenge Casting: Update your Contact Information

Posted on July 15, 2014 by admin

If you’ve been following the announcements, you know that:

  1. We’ve just upgraded Stonehenge Casting to version 0.3, and
  2. That means that, if you have an actor/performer profile on the site, you’ll want to make some updates.

We’re going page by page in your profile and feature by feature. You can get the full list in the original announcement.

If you went through the previous article, you saved updates to the Projects and Preferences page.

If not, you’ll want to click on the profile tab after you’ve logged in:

sc_v0.3_actor_myprofile

And then select “Contact Information” from the right-hand navigation column

sc_v0.3_actor_rhnav_contact

Either method, you should then see the Contact Information page, which has four (4) new settings to check and update. We’ll go through each change in turn.

1. ZIP Code

To help producers find you –and to help you find projects closer to you– Stonehenge now supports searching by ZIP code. You’ll find it’s now a required field.

You can enter your ZIP code and the site will auto-fill your City and State OR fill in your City and State and the site will auto-fill your ZIP code. Note for some larger cities that cover multiple ZIP codes, you may need to adjust your ZIP code (i.e., if you enter “New York, NY as your city and state, you may need to adjust your specific New York City ZIP code).

2. Masking your full address

You’re able to include your street address to help conscientious producers expedite payroll and related paperwork, but there’s no reason to share more contact information than needed. Therefore, all actors have “Mask Full Address” checked by default. While checked, producers will not be able to see your street address or your specific ZIP code. You are still searchable by producers, however (producers being able to fine you being one of the prime reasons you have a profile on Stonehenge, after all).

3. Contact Preference

If you have an agent, you can specify whether you should be contacted first or the agent. We know that some performers are happy to schedule auditions and learn details, leaving agents to handle rates and contracts if an offer is made. Other performers prefer all arrangements to go through their agents first. This allows you that control.

4. Mask Contact Information

sc_v0.3_actor_p3_maskcontactinfo

If you have an agent and you would like them contacted first, you can further mask your contact information so that potential employers must contact your agent (i.e., that’s the only contact information prospective employers will see on Stonehenge).

Note that you can’t mask your contact information unless you have both the agent information populated and you’ve selected they are to be contacted first.

Once you’re satisfied by your updates, click “Save and Continue” and you should go to Appearance.
