How Do We Improve the Casting Process?

We created a fully customizable, easily scalable casting database management software to save your time and money.

Signing up is easy with Production Tools. There’s no credit required to start—and you’ll have full access to our suite of features immediately. Once you’re in, start making your databases your own by creating custom labeling for your talent. Because we offer unlimited user accounts for team members at every tier, Production Tools is set up for collaboration from the get-go.

Start your projects

With unlimited projects and folders available, Production Tools is built to handle the entire casting scope of your business. To start working on a project, simply search and filter your database for assets that best fit your criteria for a particular production. You can then organize and shortlist assets for roles or different confirmation stages, and send them to your team or clients for sign-off. You can even manage privacy settings for shared links, so you can safely share exactly what you want, with whom you want, at every step.
