Q. Are Readers Free?
Some read for experience and do not charge. Most readers ask for a tip, or set an up front free for an amount of time. You agree to pay this when you hire them.
Q. How Long Do I Hire A Reader For?
Choose an initial time period: 15, 30 minutes or 1 hour minutes then you can extend this time if both of you agree. There is an easy interface that you both request and agree an extension.
How Much Do Readers Earn?
Earning potential depends on a number of factors. Readers are booked when their beacon is on. Some readers earn $1,000s a month. We sometimes publish lists of anonymously of top reader earnings so keep an eye on our socials. Generally top readers earn a few hundred dollars a week. Some more. WeAudition does not take a commission. You get paid directly.
How Do I Get Paid?
You get paid directly. WeAudition does not take a cut or commission. We prefer you use PayPal as the website servers update us when you are paid, so that we can mark the rehearsal as complete. You can also use a cash app such as Vemno. When this happens you (as a reader) or the the actor marks a rehearsal as ‘paid’ manually when you receive funds.
Q. How Do I Become A WeAudition MVP?
MVPs are chosen from our top members and receive extra exposure on the casting side of the website to Casting Directors, access to new features sooner, expedited support, and special access to a support group. As you will have seen, we also encourage new users to rehearse with an MVP as their first read. Reading over 100 times with someone, or booking over 100 readers is the first step, plus promoting us and shouting about the brand doesn’t do any harm.
Q. How Do I Get Invited To A Members House
If your career is taking off and you feel you are ready to join us in a house at a festival please make yourself known to the WeAudition team. Generally this means having at least one recurring character on TV credit or mainstream lead film credit under your belt, a professional agent & manager and an aspiration to level up.
Q. Are Members Houses Free Or Can I Pay To Join?
Sometimes WeAudition houses are sponsored and supported by WeAudition and invite only. Sometimes we have some places available at a subsidised rate for members. We always deliver substantially more value than the price.
Q. Are Events Just For Members?
Members are all invited, but please do invite along actor friends who are not yet members. WeAudition is all about helping each other succeed and community is at our core. Events are free. Please keep an eye on our socials for more information.
