frequently asked questions

How do I add a showreel to my profile?

First, you will need to set up a vimeo account for free here and then upload the video. Once the video has been uploaded you can then add the link to the video to your Fishpond Profile.

Just log in to your account > Go to Dashboard > Click 'Update Showreels'. Then type in the last digits from your Vimeo video link, so for example, if this is your video you would just type 138358051 in to the box that says Vimeo ID. Leave the box that says Bravo ID free.

Does Fishpond represent actors like an agent?

Fishpond is not an agency so we don't represent anyone. Fishpond is a database of actors both represented and independent as well as an information directory. Everyone signs up and manages their own profile on the site. Casting directors then use the site to cast projects for Film, TV, Theatre as well as commercials etc. If you'd like to know more about the site as an actor, have a look here
