the group you must have private messaging
open on your page.
The Holding Tent Louisiana is a Group Page with 10,000
plus members; A group of growing talent in the Louisiana Film
Industry. The page has been successful because of our informational
documents and the understanding and cooperation of our members with
the way the page is maintained.
We keep tangent comments and questions off the page, which allows work
opportunities to be found quickly, easily and is a much more efficient
way to maintain the page to find work information. It also keeps the
Casting Directors posts prominent without them getting buried in
conversations unrelated to the opportunities they have posted. Only
Casting Directors and our Administrators have security to make posts
on The Holding Tent Page.
We started this page to create a group of people that were reliable,
professional & well informed of what is required of them to work in
the Film Industry. This is the reason we created the Information
Documents, to help our members prepare for that role and
responsibility. We have had an overwhelming response, from our members
and found that these documents have not only raised the level of
knowledge to the budding local industry, but our members have told us
that they've also helped them greatly with finding all of the
information they need in one stop, as opposed to having to search the
web. We love to hear that, and it is truly what keeps us and the page
running, growing & successful.
Our mission was to have a group that the Casting Directors felt they
could find people they could depend on to do what is asked of them, be
there when booked and be knowledgeable, professional & fully informed;
to show Production Companies that Louisiana talent is just as capable
of filling roles they might have booked in Los Angeles or New York. We
want our local talent to have the knowledge, talent & savvy so they
cast more in Louisiana, and keep the jobs here. Not just background,
but also cast, principle, featured, speaking & special featured roles.
We told our members if they have a question to send a direct email to
the casting company or they can private message our Administrators and
we will answer their question as soon as possible. If they have a
comment, question or concern that they would like to ask their fellow
colleagues, they should go to The Holding Tent Discussion Page and
post their comment there, as it was specifically created for all
members to share ideas, concerns & thoughts so that The Holding Tent
could remain for work postings only.
See you on set!
