The other main location to find recent casting/crew calls, also includes the rest of Texas instead of the greater Central Texas area. This is also a great site for articles, resources, and other highlights from the Texas Film scene.

Mentioned above as a state organization, they also offer a place to find jobs for crew members in the film & gaming communities.

  • Central Texas Live Theatre:

For those actors who want to hit the stage. I also like them because they spell theatre correctly. Also check out their Job Opportunities page for crew side of theatre production.
