Hello Developmentcasting and welcome to the forum. :)

Your call is a bit nebulous. 'development casting' is a fairly generic term within the industry. I'll leave your post up for now but I suggest you post the 5 Ws and give the commercial members a bit more to work with so they can make an informed opinion as to whether or not to contact you.

Why are you looking for matchmakers (purpose, casting, consulting, etc.)?

What is the purpose of your call (IE. Talk show, series, documentary etc.)?

When is this show/development/project taking place?

Who are you (your company name if you don't mind)?

Where is this production taking place?

and 'How' are you planning on utilizing commercial members that might respond to you (correspondence, personal meetings, etc.)?

Thanks

Brass

I find it a bit odd you are not using your Company domain email address, a personal one or the info@ one  as advertised on your website would have been the norm  ??? using a hotmail one makes it seem you have something to hide  :)

I laugh at the Hotmail address.  It is just as easy to set up a fake company as it is a fake Hotmail address. 

However, I expect his real name, and the name of his company.

That is the very least for an honest company wanting to find honest people to interview.

Maybe he didn't want spamming so used a disposable one?

I spoke to a chap on the phone today who was from a TV company; I expect this is he. I referred him here in the first instance. Although trying to hoof people onto an email address I suspect will be less productive than asking some stuff here as Brass suggested.

Also, expected slant at the subject matter people may wish to know about before they become involved.

Manny,

Mike is probably semi-legit .... but, at least he usually gives his first name even if he is a little creepy - IMHO.

PS - he has used this email for over a year, so it is probably not 'disposable.'

Further; DC, it's important to understand RUA is not an on line trade mag. Commercial members and regular members alike are inherently suspicious of these type of solicitations. We have several members who've taken part in shows/documentaries/projects in the past that have not turned out well.

Are you a PA?

More info will be needed. :)

Fair enough but the way the message is written is so bad....

I agree, my 10year old with English as a third language would have phrased it better  (:)

The post is written like a call for cast/crew as you would see in the classifieds. That's why I've explained to DC, if he is interested in getting some response here at RUA, he'll have to offer a bit more info.

However, he's posted his message and may not provide any more info (he may not feel the need to) as these types of calls usually illicit plenty of returns anyway. In otherwords, here's the email addy respond and we'll let you know if we feel you fit the bill - like most production calls.
