SlateShot   Headshots... with Personality

What's a SlateShot?

  • SlateShots are seven-second video clips that bring headshots to life.
  • Each photo can have its own SlateShot, so actors can match the look or tone of each photo.
  • When a headshot is submitted, Casting can watch the attached SlateShot as well to see and hear what the actor really looks and sounds like.

Here are a few example SlateShots presented exactly how Casting Directors would see them as an extension of your headshot. Submissions with SlateShots are displayed ahead of submissions without SlateShots.


Click the SlateShot icon under each headshot to play each SlateShot.

How do SlateShots work?

How does it work?

  1. Have your SlateShots professionally done or shoot them yourself. Just slate your name and show a little personality in a seven-second or less video file. Create a unique SlateShot to enhance every photo on your profile. See the examples above.
  2. Go to your photo management page on Actors Access and click "Add SlateShot" under the photo you want to enhance. Follow the online instructions. Your first SlateShot is absolutely FREE. If you choose to ADD or REPLACE a SlateShot each change is only $5 USD.
  3. Submit to a project with that SlateShot enhanced photo.
  4. Casting can now watch your SlateShot, as well as see your headshot, résumé, and performance videos, helping you stand out from the crowd.
