How to Get Netflix to Audition For You: You Can Get $25K in Audition Fees by Auditioning in 2020
If you’ve been in Hollywood for any length of time, you’ve probably noticed that some of the movies that you’ve seen in the past decade have had some pretty compelling casting.
This trend is only going to continue.
A new report from Nielsen claims that Netflix, Amazon, and other streaming platforms are going to see a massive surge in demand for their content in 2020.
The reason for the surge is fairly simple: movies are going up in price.
While Netflix is the king of subscription streaming services, it’s actually Amazon that has the biggest rise in prices over the last few years.
The company is reportedly spending more money on its streaming service than it does on advertising.
“The streaming market has changed dramatically in recent years, and the demand for movies is on the rise,” says Nielsen’s research director, David Gascón.
“In 2020, Netflix will be spending more on advertising than it is on movies, so it’s more likely to get its films to customers.”
While the increase in Netflix’s advertising revenue could be a good thing, the fact that it’s being used to pay actors for the job of casting their names in movies doesn’t seem to be helping.
Nielsen’s report says that it is “likely that many actors will not be paid for their work as a result of these changes.”
This is all a little scary, because casting a new actor for a film is usually a lot more expensive than just casting an actor for an existing movie.
And there’s nothing wrong with that.
But Nielsen’s data also suggests that Netflix is actually hurting its ability to attract talent by not paying actors for roles.
It’s worth noting that Nielsen is projecting that a few more movies will hit the market in 2020, and that the average number of movies that Netflix has released in the last decade is actually a lot higher than what Nielsen expects.
But the trend is a little worrying, because it’s likely that some actors will never get the chance to audition for a movie.
According to Nielsen, Netflix is expecting a total of about 10,000 actors to audition in 2020 for a wide variety of movies.
The problem is, there are some movies that are going for more than that.
There are films that are being produced for the television network, and there are films for theaters.
And then there are the films that have been made for streaming platforms.
While Netflix is already planning to release some of its upcoming releases in 2020 (including the first two seasons of Fargo), it’s also expected to release a few original series.
Netflix will be releasing several original series in 2020: The Handmaid’s Tale, Black Mirror, and Orange is the New Black.
Additionally, the streaming giant is also expected be releasing a number of documentaries, such as The War Room, a film about the rise of the alt-right.
These films may seem like small changes, but Netflix is making it seem like a lot bigger.
Netflix is going to release several movies in 2020 that are entirely new to the streaming service.
For example, The Handmaids Tale is an adaptation of the novel by Margaret Atwood, which was first published in 1984.
And the film Black Mirror is an experiment in science fiction that was made by British producer and director Sam Esmail in the late ’90s.
All of these films are being made by different companies, and Nielsen doesn’t expect to see any major changes in the industry.
Of course, it doesn’t hurt that Netflix doesn’t need any help with these productions.
However, if you want to make sure that you don’t get a bad gig for your name, you should start auditioning now.
The streaming service will likely be making an effort to give actors more opportunities to audition, but the odds of you actually getting a movie cast are very low.
