Coronavirus Covid-19 Update

Follow The Casting Collective’s latest updates on the Covid-19 pandemic.

UPDATE: July 2021
We are open and accepting new casting briefs again from production companies.

The Casting Collective team will continue to be working from home so if you need to contact us please email [email protected] and we’ll get back to you asap.

As Film, TV and Commercial productions restart, we want to reassure you that we are taking safety seriously. The welfare of all our artistes, staff, production staff and their families remain our utmost priority.

Casting Collective and all production companies are now working to: The guidelines from the British Film Commission ‘Working safely during Covid-19 in Film and high-end TV Drama Production’ and The APA Covid-19 Shooting Guidelines to get us all back to work safely.

Covid Vaccines

Although not compulsory, it’s useful for us to know when Artistes have had either dose 1 or dose 2 of the Covid-19 vaccine. To show this please login to the document uploader and click on ‘Add COVID-19 information’ to upload the vaccination date and a photo or screenshot evidence for dose 1 and/or dose 2. It’s very important your name and the date of vaccine is clearly shown on any Covid Vaccine upload.
