Our service

  • ActLikeMe is an online marketplace where Talent and Casting Professionals connect directly about jobs and auditions in the entertainment industry. ActLikeMe is not an agency and does not represent talent or advertisers.
  • ActLikeMe operates a website which provides a service enabling advertisers such as movie production houses, television production companies, advertising agencies, theatres, event promotion companies and other advertisers operating in the entertainment industry to place classified advertisements. Advertisers may choose to place advertisements, and applicants such as models, actors, dancers, photographers, musicians, cinematographers and other individuals that may choose to apply to such advertisements, at which point the applicant's details will be forwarded to the advertiser or display further application instructions. This Service (or a more limited version of it) will become accessed through the ActLikeMe Apps, in future.
  • Advertisements may be linked to a microsite created and hosted by ActLikeMe to also accept applications. Such microsites will be offered at ActLikeMe's discretion.
  • Users of the Service ("Members") who choose to subscribe to Membership of ActLikeMe will appear in the Talent Directory, can contact and receive contact from other members of ActLikeMe, and access further features and tools.
  • By default, a Member's profile is public, and any internet user visiting ActLikeMe may view that member's profile, including photos and showreels. Profiles are also accessible from search engines such as Google.
  • ActLikeMe is not responsible for the content, and makes no warranty as to the accuracy of the advertisements. Members should always use their own judgement in deciding whether or not to apply for any of the roles advertised on ActLikeMe. We provide our Service only for the purposes of providing listings for casting, auditions, and at our discretion, general jobs, with third party Advertisers. Whether these roles are listed by the Advertiser or listed by a ActLikeMe representative on behalf of the Advertiser, we shall not be liable under any circumstances for the actions of any Advertiser of any role or other job featured on ActLikeMe.
  • ActLikeMe is not responsible for the content, and makes no warranty as to the accuracy of Members' personal information. Advertisers should always use their own judgement in deciding whether to contact, cast or audition Members. We shall not be liable under any circumstances for the actions of any Member.
  • By submitting a listing for placement on ActLikeMe you consent to the use of your name, website, email, logo and listing information in marketing and promotional activities conducted by ActLikeMe.
  • ActLikeMe Services are limited to providing advertisers with access to information about applicants seeking work in the entertainment business and to providing access to information about advertisers to such applicants. This Service is the only work finding Service provided by ActLikeMe and ActLikeMe is not connected to the advertisers or applicants save in respect of these Terms of Use.
  • You acknowledge that the decision to offer you auditions or jobs rests with the advertisers who use ActLikeMe, and the availability of such jobs is affected by the industry as a whole. ActLikeMe cannot guarantee that applicants will be offered auditions or jobs, or that advertisers will find suitable talent, through using this Service.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure that any audition or job offered by employers is acceptable to you. ActLikeMe is unable to provide advice relating to the nature, duration, terms, or payment for any job.

  • Responsibility for minors

    ActLikeMe is intended for persons aged 18 or over. Legal guardians may register and operate a profile for a minor. By registering and operating a profile on behalf of a minor, you acknowledge that some parts of ActLikeMe may contain material that is inappropriate for minors, and you agree to supervise all activity that occurs on the minor’s profile.

    Currently and without limit, individuals who are under 18 may not operate their own registered profile on ActLikeMe.

    If you register on behalf of a minor, you must still comply, and must ensure the minor complies, with these Terms of Use and provide the required consents in relation to these Terms of Use and Privacy Policy (on behalf of the minor). Any breach of these Terms of Use by the minor is deemed to be a breach by you. You must ensure that any access by the minor to ActLikeMe or to communications made via ActLikeMe is fully supervised by you. You or a minor registered by you are not permitted to upload images of an adult or inappropriate nature. Minors may not advertise casting calls or jobs. From time to time, ActLikeMe may advise you of other policies or conditions that apply to the profiles of minors. You must comply with those policies or conditions if you are to continue using ActLikeMe.
