We want to have an environment where the top talent can do the best voiceover work of their lives. Realtime Casting works for you.
Why is Realtime getting the best voices?
Individual talents and their agents have joined Realtime Casting because it was created by voiceover industry people. We share like-minded beliefs in how voiceovers should work. We share the same sense of humor and career goals. We share common beliefs in how a person should be paid, and more importantly, how much.
Realtime Casting is an online website to promote union voiceover work. It’s separating itself from other websites that tell you, “forget about the past”. Realtime Casting’s cause is to shine a light on the belief that voice actors should be paid well for the work they do, regardless of where they work be it a pro studio in Los Angeles or a home studio in Tampa Bay.
The voice actors on Realtime Casting are represented by voice agents and only Sag Aftra work is posted. Union voiceover work is the type of work professional talents build careers around. Doing the math behind your career and thinking ahead isn’t always easy. The staff at Realtime Casting has the career, business, and life experience to know how a voice career plays out from start to finish.
