AACTION Casting is a community based, information and employment hub for people in the entertainment industry.
Originally founded as a phone service by a former actress who wanted to create opportunities for newcomers, AACTION has grown over the years to become the site you see today.
The mandate at AACTION is to create opportunities in the industry. Not just auditions, but the chance to network and get out there, to be seen by industry professionals. As a resource, AACTION provides several services ranging from creating and storing your professional profile, to posting auditions and providing a Directory of third party services.
For years AACTION has been there to help performers get a 'foot in the door' and we hope to continue with that mandate and bring opportunities to everyone, whether they be new to the industry, or veterans.
Good luck out there!

Sean Ballantyne, Manager of Operations
Originally trained in Journalism, Sean soon found that he wanted nothing to do with that industry and found himself (unexpectedly) in the entertainment industry, performing in a comedy sketch/variety show. Bitten by the bug, Sean started down a new career path as an actor, with a blank page for a resume and not much more than hopes and dreams.
More than a decade later, Sean has appeared in dozens of theatrical performances ranging from Classic (Twelfth Night, An Ideal Husband, Pride and Prejudice) to modern (Run For Your Wife, Shakespeare's Gladiator Games, 12 Angry Men). Sean's on camera resume also runs a wide range from Independent (Shrew in the Park, Injustice, Reverse Chronological Encounters with the X/Y Chromosome) to mainstream (Souvenir of Canada, Masterminds, The Listener (Pilot))
Since assuming the role as AACTION's Manager of Operations, Sean has worked to implement new ideas and incentives, such as the 'AACTION Pre-Screen,' to open doors for talent by getting them in front of casting.
