GWCI offices are temporarily closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic and all productions are temporarily shut down.

However, we wanted to take this time to ensure that everyone is made aware of our new database platform, so we can easily communicate when productions resume filming.

GWCI.app is FREE and doesn’t require the download of any special app or software. It runs seamlessly through your web browser – on your smart phone, tablet or home computer. It’s a faster, more streamlined tool for casting communication.

With GWCI.app you can register, submit to our casting notices, and receive your booking details and call times. You can log in and update your profile at any time.

If you have not done so already, register now!

For instructions on how to register, visit our Help Desk https://gwcnyc.freshdesk.com/
or our YouTube Channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKg_O898k60pgW29bR6yYPw/featured

Why have we made the change to our new system?

1) Our new system allows talent to update their own profile. Instead of sending us updated photos and clothing sizes through email, you can now log in and update it yourself. All GWCI casting associates will be able to see your updates instantly.

2) Our new system allows for talent to submit directly to the roles we post. GWCI casting associates can message you through the system via text and email. You can note your availability for a project, and change it if you get booked on something else.

3) By registering, you also acknowledge receipt of our Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy.

Again, the system is free to register and use.

Stay safe and healthy! We hope to resume casting soon.
