Powerful tools for every step of the way


  • Custom Applications

    When you create a role on Castifi, we automatically generate a link that you can paste anywhere, directing actors to an application page. This way, if you current database doesn’t have what you’re looking for, you can advertise easily without having to manually type the job details again.

  • Preboarding Gallery

    When you are running a wide scale talent search, use our “Preboarding Gallery” to filter applicants before they even sign up. You can sort submissions by role, move them through rounds, and finally, trigger an onboarding email prompting them to complete their profile to join your database.

  • Background Checks

    Working with random strangers doesn’t mean you should sacrifice safety. Castifi provides background checks for production companies that work with sensitive talent, minors, or just anyone that wants total peace of mind.

  • Search Tools

    Find the needle in the haystack with our advanced search features. We provide a lot more than basic functionalities related to actor’s physical appearance. You can find someone based on their rating, their job history, the props they own, or the special skills they bring to the table.

    Need to backfill a spot at the last minute? Our search module also allows you to find users based on their location, down to the mile. Your odds of booking someone at 6am are a lot higher if they live 2 blocks from your set!

  • Availability Checks

    No more calling boxes and mass emails. Send availability requests from your project in a single click. Users receive the basic details of the job, and are able to mark themselves available in seconds. You get the list of available actors in real-time in your project and in your gallery.

  • Autopilot Sourcing

    When you input the details of a role, our software gets everything it needs to find matching actors in your database. Just specify how many people you’re looking for and the ethnicity ratio you want to work with. Castifi reaches out to actors automatically from there.

  • Client Gallery

    When you need to present your company to your clients, you don’t send them a pdf file. You show them your website. We believe that the same concept applies to casting.

    With our interactive gallery, clients can view actor’s profiles and make their selects. Plus, you get notified the moment that they choose an actor, removing the need for unnecessary emails and saving you crucial minutes as deadlines loom.

  • Mass Messaging

    Last minute schedule change? Need to find someone who can drive a vintage motorcycle within your cast? Whether it’s vital information or just handy, our platform lets you send text messages and emails to your cast with a simple click. And as everything else with Castifi, you can do this directly from your phone.

  • Diverse Reporting

    Forget typing names and phone numbers into spreadsheets. Our reporting tool lets you generate skins, pdf galleries, measurements lists and more. You can accommodate every department on set without doing the work three times over.

  • Ratings & Reviews

    When you manage thousands of actors, it’s difficult to remember who performed well or who didn’t bring enough wardrobe options. Just like your Uber Driver, our extras work hard to earn their good rating. For every job, Castifi lets your staff rate and review the actors that worked on set, allowing you to hire the right person every time.
