It's free to create a basic profile using a Trial Membership, and trial members can apply to some listings for free. To apply for unlimited jobs on site, appear in our Talent Directory, enhance profiles or applications, get priority access to listings and more, members need to select one of our paid membership options, which are about the cost of a fancy coffee a month.
We don't take a commission or charge booking fees on work booked through our site.
We rarely place listings where there is a fee payable to the Casting Professional upon application, but if we do, this will be stated upfront on the listing – for example, an entry fee for a beauty pageant.
For Casting Professionals
It's free to place a listing, and to contact anyone who has applied to that listing.
If you would like your listing to be promoted in the search results, you may pay a small fee for this – you'll be offered this opportunity during the ‘place a listing' process and can skip it if you like.
There is a small charge if you would like to contact members via our Talent Directory. After the first message, it's free to send additional messages to the same member.
Casting Professionals who purchase a subscription can contact up to 50 other members free of charge, in addition to applying for jobs and auditions. This works well for some of our members who work both as Talent and Casting Professionals.
Please note, the message system is reserved for casting related communication only, and we don't allow sales or promotional messages to be sent.

Contacting Individual Talents
If you place a casting call on ModelFactory, there is no charge to contact the applicants.
There is a small charge if you contact members through the Talent Directory, and we limit the number of available contacts per day to ensure our members don’t receive too many messages. For safety reasons, we also monitor all direct messages.
Contacting a member costs one ModelFactory contact credit. After the first message, it's free to send additional messages to the same member.
Members of ModelFactory who purchase a subscription can contact up to 50 other members free of charge, in addition to applying for jobs or auditions. Trial (non-paying) Members need to buy contact credits to contact other members.
Contact credits do not expire. Your contact credit balance can be viewed from Settings and you can top up from there too.
