ABOUT DHAR MANN STUDIOS:

Dhar Mann Studios is a video production company aimed at creating positive content for the social media generation. These short, motivational videos focused on life, business, and relationships receive over 1 Billion views monthly and have garnered over 40 Billion views on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and TikTok. The team is led by Dhar Mann, a mission-driven entrepreneur with a global audience of over 90 Million social media followers and one of the highest viewed content creators in the world today. These compelling stories depict real life situations shown by actors that teach important life lessons, inspired by Dhar Mann's personal experience of success and failure. The company is driven by one founding principle: We’re not just telling stories, we’re changing lives.


BIG PICTURE:

We are looking for a Casting & Locations Associate whose primary job is to find talented actors in the Los Angeles area that can deliver high level performances for our short films. This individual will find actors through posting breakdowns on Breakdown Services, LA Casting, and by contacting Agencies in LA to find the best possible talent to submit to our projects. The Casting Associate will request audition tapes, review self tape submissions, and present recommendations as to who should be cast to the Casting Manager. The ideal candidate has already established a profile on LA Casting and Breakdown Services and is experienced in communicating with agencies. Good casting is crucial to making characters credible on-screen and is fundamentally important to the success of our videos. In addition, this individual will have experience finding locations through Giggster, Peerspace, and other location platforms when the script requires a location that our Dhar Mann Studios sets do not have.

  • Choosing the best possible talent and then presenting recommendations as to who should be cast to the Casting Manager
  • Providing last minute emergency solutions in case an actor is needed to fill a role immediately
  • Understanding union/non-union rules and any applicable laws pertaining to film and casting, as well as knowing rules pertaining to casting children
  • Maintaining strong relationships with the local acting community and talent agencies throughout LA
  • Any other duties to support organization and the overall casting process

WHAT YOU HAVE:

  • A minimum of 2 years working within the film industry as a Casting professional
  • Able to effectively oversee various tasks/subsections of the casting process with minimal oversight
  • Personal network of actors with a strong understanding of applicable rules/laws as they pertain to casting and any legal requirements
  • Knowledge of union vs. non-union responsibilities
  • Knowledge of child labor laws in case children are casted
  • Strong organizational and communication skills
  • Ability to work after hours and on weekends and come up with solutions when emergencies arise
