News and Highlights - 2020
24 March 2020
Government Regulations have effectively prohibited Studio Auditions
(As of midnight on Thursday 26th March)
We have therefore prepared ourselves to accept self-taped auditions, with Skype assistance as required, where possible. Note that you will still have to record your audition yourself and upload it.
Rather than focusing on the collapse of the Film industry, we should see this time as an opportunity to improve our skills. We therefore provide a "SELF-TAPE BASICS" guide on our WORKSHOPS Page

A Note from CastServe Audition Studio
Many productions have been put on hold, some productions have been re-scheduled to shoot later in the year once international travel resumes. A very few projects with longer lead times are optimistically continuing pre-production, but it is not known when normal production will be resumed. 
Regulars will know that even in busy times, there are seldom more than four people in the waiting area of CastServe Studio in Cape Town or “151” in Johannesburg. Nevertheless, for some time we have already been taking sensible hygiene precautions against the COVID-19 Pandemic. Use of our hand-washing facilities is encouraged and surfaces are wiped often.

Delayed Update
We have recently moved into our own Studio - at last! It has been a marathon of late nights and week ends. Our new Associate, Richard Lothian found himself learning handyman skills he never thought he'd need, while also learning the back-room skills required by a Casting Director! We're now concentrating on the Productions we have in hand - the web site will get a make-over when we've had a chance to draw breath.
I have, however updated the "Maps To Studios" tab on the Menu above, so you will be able to find us.
