To be added to the MAAC database, you must have a professional resume, have worked in the entertainment industry, or other creative fields, or have attended school, or are actively in school focusing on the Arts/Film. We prefer you have a verifiable credit on projects including animation, film, television, commercial, industrial, gaming, music video or web, but are aware that our community has largely been left out of these professions. UNTIL NOW, which is why we do not have a credit requirement to join our talent database.
When you register with our database, it is your responsibility to create a profile page and complete all the required fields so you are easily searchable in the system.. Leave no box empty. You will also have the option to upload a resume with credits and links to your website, or reel.
While it will be easier to be hired if you are SAG-AFTRA, WGA, DGA, or IATSE, or even eligible to join one of the above guilds. We are aware that many MENASA talent and crew in the business are fighting gatekeepers and trying to break in.
Thankfully, because our authentic voices are so very underrepresented, casting and producers may be willing to find ways to incorporate your talents into their productions or companies. It is helpful that you have a credit, or experience working in your field, union or non-union.
No. Our platform is 100% free for our underserved community members.
Students are encouraged to join with a professional resume and previous training in their field.
Not for actors, in fact we encourage the parent or legal guardian of all actors of all ages to submit on the platform. Please be sure that they have professional headshots and to fill in all required fields. However, for all our fields you must be 18+ to submit to the database.
How will I be notified if an employer, casting director, or production is interested in me?
They will contact you directly. It’s imperative that you place how you’d like to be connected, including your agency and management information, or direct contact.
We are adding the option to add Multinational in the dropdown of Country of Origin. If you identify as such and it's a MENASA country and a non-MENASA country, choose the MENASA country and please clarify in bio. If you are MultiNational from two or more MENASA countries, please choose Multinational and clarify in your bio your cultural makeup.
We suggest you choose the Union you work most with. However, we urge you to remember this will be used primarily for film/tv/digital platforms. So if you are part of SAG-AFTRA and AEA, we suggest choosing SAG-AFTRA and clarifying in your bio, you are also a Stage Actor and proud AEA member.
Simply don't choose an age-range in the drop down box, and age won't be shown on your profile.
