WHY DID WE CREATE KROWDKAST?
Krowdkast is built by professionals,
With a profound understanding of industry challenges, Krowdkast was designed to simplify and refine the process of casting talent across the world. Time is a constant pressure in the creative industry, which highlights the importance of having an effective search & casting platform which integrates everything seamlessly.
We work to protect rates and working standards which is why all of the listed Models, Actors & Influencers are booked via accredited agencies.
New technology to tackle industry challenges.
Krowdkast’s evolving technology is integral to industry growth, and a way in which the industry can respond to challenges. Slow processes, such as sending multiple agency enquiries and travelling to attend castings, have now been digitalised. Our Casting Suite brings advanced recording, high-definition video and integrated software to allow a seamless casting process from start to finish. Through our continued market research, industry monitoring and user feedback, we continue to develop new products and upgrades to benefit the Krowdkast community.
A TRUSTED COMMUNITY
Krowdkast only lists accredited talent agencies.
The talent listed can only be booked via their regulated agents to ensure we keep our community protected. Each agency application and booking request undergoes our in-house check first to ensure our clients never receive any compromised requests. Booking through unregulated platforms can cause problems for businesses, projects, agents and talent. Dedicated to re-building trust in the casting process, Krowdkast believes in always booking talent through industry approved & accredited agents & managers.

Krowdkast adds a layer of due-diligence to the booking process for agents as well – every client request we are sent is checked by our in-house team. This allows us to filter through any unprofessional requests, before they are sent to any of our affiliated agencies. This maintains a professional industry standard throughout the search, and casting process.
How is Talent added to Krowdkast? Do we have to manually add each and every one of our Models, Actors & Influencers to the platform?
Krowdkast offers a number of solutions to assist with the Talent upload process, including software which automatically synchronises data from an agencies website to the Krowdkast platform, alongside an in-house specialist team on hand to take care of as much of the Talent upload process as possible. This ensures that the majority of the workload associated with this process is handled from our side.
How are the Talent listings kept up to date?
Krowdkast has technology that automatically traces an Agent's website every 24hrs, this process detects any changes to Talents images or details, updating them automatically in the process. The software also tracks whether any new Talent has been added to an agents website, automatically adding them to Krowdkast, or if a Talent has been removed from an Agency website, they are automatically removed from Krowdkast. We like to keep workload to a minimum for agents, apart from the additional enquiries we look to provide agents. If you would prefer to manage your own listings that appear on Krowdkast, there is a facility which allows agents to manually update their Talent when they need to.
