Ours is a fresh and sensible approach offering new features and benefits for our agency and production company clients. We feature a secure, intuitive and filterable platform for you to discover, research and save your initial talent selections so that you may compare your talent options side by side.
We’ll walk you through the site, show you how to find and request talent and then help you get your account set up.
Use our search feature to find the talent that’s right for your production, then proceed by sending them a request.
Once talent approves your request, you may initiate a skype, video or in person audition. When agreements are approved, their contact info is released to you for wardrobe/scheduling, we setup auto payouts, schedule reminders and will look forward to your talent review.
Once registered, you have full access to our talent database with easy to use filtering to find the perfect talent for your production. Our Lightbox feature enables you to compare talent side by side and share your selections for final approval.
Once selections are made, simply complete a request outlining location(s), production date(s), call time(s) and monies offered. Acceptance may be contingent upon their submitting to a background check, a service we offer through our friends at Good Hire. Next, agreements are finalized and contact information is released to you.
Once terms are agreed upon and confirmed, NIKO Fees and talent fees are processed through Stripe, our e-commerce service provider. Auto reminders are sent to talent a week out, three days prior and the day before production. Following their last scheduled scene, funds are prepared for release the following business day. We encourage both talent and client to rate one another on our site.
Along with NIKO Casting's fee you pay each talent one flat fee for perpetual use. There are no residuals nor royalties. A full fee list is available once you have an account with us.
