Legendary casting directories go digital

The Spotlight casting directories are renowned in the British acting community. They are, essentially the bibles to every professional in the film, theatre and television industry to help them step into centre stage.

With the support from Page Lizard, the once gigantic catalogue that housed 1,000s of professionals has been modernised and transformed into two sleek and beautiful apps for actors and actresses.

The search for the next big star has become easier, as casting directors can now sign into the digital editions with the same account details as the Spotlight desktop site. The easy-to-use design allows directors to use the app in tiled or full-page view, making it simple to find their ideal candidate.

Performers can now be shortlisted based on directors requirements such as age and height, by controlling the search filters on the app.

The Spotlight app has revolutionized the work of casting directors, replacing pen and paper, with a digital catalogue creation.

Page Lizard constantly delivered on their promise to listen to us, be on hand whenever we needed, react quickly to our feedback and help make the process painless at all times. Simple and gorgeous. We have the most fantastic product as a result.
