Since you're new It's always worth remembering you can't ask for paid work in casting calls, you would use an availability or travel notice in that situation smile

I did get really confused about the compensation part in the casting calls section. It isn't very clear sad thank you for your help xxx

Then she should post an "Availability Notice" wink

On other sites they're all called "Casting Calls" regardless of who's paying whom, but here on MM "Casting Calls" are for those doing the paying and "Availability Notices" are for those asking to be paid.

Whether you're a new photographer who first picked up a camera last week, an agency model with lots of experience, or Elle MacPherson, you can't ask for paid work in a Casting Call on MM.

A Casting Call here means you're trying to hire (possibly as a trade) a cast or crew member. It's not for advertising that others can hire you; that's what Availability Notices are for: letting others know you are available to be hired.

Leah,

For the record, if I were in the UK I'd work with you in a heartbeat. :-)

Best of luck.
