    How do I get cast/ i am 78 have my profile in Central Casting up to date pictures and info. Nothing since june 2023. They say age does not matter. Experience in acting is not needed or necessary opr important; they'd rather have no experience. Why do I never hear from them? I attended every virtual class offered.

    Hi Lisa,

    My name is Francesca “Fancy” Mars. I am a photo producer (ETC), and I come experience and with a recommendation letter from my mentor at B&H. How can I help you?

    Hello, My name is Levi Pixton.

    I am interested in being an On-Air personality in radio or television, but I also have experience in Broadcast Production which I graduated in at Washington State University this year.

    I have experience in acting (series and feature-length films), color commentating (football, baseball, volleyball), audio production (news), directing news broadcasts, camera work (sports, news, documentaries, etc.), utility for production crews, parab mic operator for Pac12, Machine Engineer for over a decade, office manager and dispatch for over a decade, PPE trained and much more.

    The television series that has influenced me most in my life is without a doubt True Detective season 1. I have never seen two individuals carry the performative load of a series so well, and evoke the emotion necessary to capitalize on the amazing writing, directing, editing, and overall production of a project.

    I would love to see opportunity that is diverse and plentiful, and also a community that benefits from a cohesive mentality as much as it does a competitive nature. In my long work experience, coupled with my recent higher education I know the value and need for proper teamwork and communication, which without, all other pursuits are bound to fail.

    Thank you, and I look forward to the opportunity to display my skills in this prosperous new field.

    Hi New & Old Paramount Family,

    My name is Francesca “Fancy Mars. I am a native Brooklyn, New Yorker, and I am a solid team player. I can fit in any department effortlessly. I love everything about film/tv/commercials. I have been happily in front, and behind the camera as crew for 10 + years. I have now been at Paramount as a CCO, PA, AND COORDINATOR for about 3/4 years now. I am naturally creative, and I come with a lot of perks . I can budget really good, and I can figure out any solution to majority of sets problems FAST. I was also a photo/casting/creative PRODUCER/Coordinator & head model at B&H with FULL CREATIVE CONTROL for the last 8/9 years. I used to host underground music shows, so I have a lot of music plugs connections if needed. Speaking of music world I just 2nd AD French Montana video under Director Kid Art. (Epic 🎉) On the scenic side I am a mainly a Taper etc. I helped produce/coordinate Harlem Fine Art Show at Glasshouse NYC in Feb for the 2nd year, so far during Black History Month. I also enjoy sports. Football & basketball are my two favorites sports. Fashion is in my blood literally lol. I hope this does not come across as bragging I just really love everything about working in Hollywood, and I love that every day is different.

    I am looking for more consistency, so I would love to eventually evolve at Paramount into the creative space , direct, or as a producer. Until then I’m down to coordinate etc until my spot opens up. S/0 to who ever created this “Production lot”. We all needed this. My number is (347) 432-1277. My email address is BookedByFancyMars@gmail.com . ( My reference letters & full crew, or talent resume, and IMDb is available upon request) 🙃

    Happy Solar Eclipse 🌘🧿

    1. Hi! My names Briana c. Moya but also known just as Briana moya on some projects.
    2. The group I’m interested in is crew.
    3. I have a dual degree in both Costume design and fashion design. I’ve been working for almost a decade as a set costumer and assistant costume designer. I’m looking to completely change over to assisting as I would like to Design one day.
    4. I am a massive history buff so any well made period piece, uk and Europe I’m looking at you. I enjoy and would love to work on. My influences growing up were the original Indiana jones along with anything Costume designed by Colleen Atwood and Jacquilen Durran.
    5. I would love to see work in Los Angeles on the production lots! But if I could choose genera historical and period shows and more films would be a dream to work on. I am willing to travel for work and love going on location.

    looking forward to meeting some new people on here!
