Our mission was to have a group that the Casting Directors felt they could find people they could depend on to do what is asked of them, be there when booked and be knowledgeable, professional & fully informed; to show Production Companies that Louisiana talent is just as capable of filling roles they might have booked in Los Angeles or New York. We want our local talent to have the knowledge, talent & savvy so they cast more in
We told our members if they have a question to send a direct email to the casting company or they can private message our Administrators and we will answer their question as soon as possible. If they have a comment, question or concern that they would like to ask their fellow colleagues, they should go to The Holding Tent Discussion Page and post their comment there, as it was specifically created for all members to share ideas, concerns & thoughts so that The Holding Tent could remain for work postings only. See you on set!
We started this page to create a group of people that were reliable, professional & well informed of what is required of them to work in the Film Industry. This is the reason we created the Information Documents, to help our members prepare for that role and responsibility. We have had an overwhelming response, from our members and found that these documents have not only raised the level of knowledge to the budding local industry, but our members have told us that they've also helped them greatly with finding all of the information they need in one stop, as opposed to having to search the web. We love to hear that, and it is truly what keeps us and the page running, growing & successful.
We keep tangent comments and questions off the page, which allows work opportunities to be found quickly, easily and is a much more efficient way to maintain the page to find work information. It also keeps the Casting Directors posts prominent without them getting buried in conversations unrelated to the opportunities they have posted. Only Casting Directors and our Administrators have security to make posts on The Holding Tent Page.
The Holding Tent is a Resource Page with 21,000 plus members; A group of growing talent in the Louisiana Film Industry. The page has been successful because of our informational documents and the understanding and cooperation of our members with the way the page is maintained.
