Is Explore Talent real?
Is explore talent a real place or a scam? They have paired me with many auditions on the website but I need to know if they are real. Can someone please help? Thank you.
- I once did an experiment. I set up a fake profile saying that I was from some small town in Montana in the middle of nowhere, population 73. I also said that I was 68 years old. I know for a fact there are not going to be any sort of auditions near there, especially for a 68 year old with no acting experience. But within 24 hours, I had emails telling me there were casting directors interested in me, but that I had to upgrade my membership to get information. What are the chances that within 24 hours some unnamed casting director is going to be looking for a 68 year old woman in the middle of nowhere to audition for them?20
Explore Talent is a scam.
Recently, I subscribed to Explore Talent. I realized it was a scam within the first few days of being a Pro Member. For example I noticed that I was able to look up my name on Explore Talent and view my whole profile. I did not even have to be a member to do that. This means that anyone can look me up and see my whole profile. This is not good because I am a minor.
I also noticed that when I signed up for auditions, the info for the auditions did not include the director's name. This highly bothered me because I think the auditions should have had the director's name and some information about him or her.
Another bad thing I noticed was Explore Talent claims that it has thousands of auditions. I live in Georgia, and I was told that Explore Talent has thousands of options for me. However, most of the auditions were expired since May! There were 8 pages of auditions, but 4 of those pages were filled with expired auditions. The other four had auditions, but none of them were for my age. I am 14 years old and I only found one audition. All the other auditions were for 18-35 year olds. This was very annoying. It made me feel like I was that ripped off because I am paying nearly $30 a month for Explore Talent. Due to this I canceled my Pro Membership. I would like to find a better talent webite that is not a scam.
To answer your question, Explore Talent is a scam. Also, if you did not become a Pro Member for explore talent, they will ask you to pay money before you can go to the audition.
Here are two legit websites:
The two websites above are legit.
