This project was created over a 5 month period to address the changes to how the Casting Industry handles day to day business in response to COVID 19. Virtual Casting Rooms allow a Casting Director to book talent, share information about the role, directions, and virtual audition link with talent as well as collect information from talent before the audition. The day of the audition Production can host an audition 100% remotely and share all of the recordings and actor materials instantly with their production team using Casting Workbook.
My role in this project was design lead. I was also the sole designer on this project, working directly with the development team, users (Casting Directors, Agents, and Actors), and stakeholders to deliver a solution to address the changing industry under tight timelines. In addition to the design roles, I also project managed this initiative, tracking all tasks in Asana and ensuring the team stayed on track through the project Slack channel and weekly check in meetings.
This project received national media attention and was even picked up by the financial post.
The details of this project are under an NDA. If you would like to see how it works and a detailed breakdown of my process (including user stories, assumption mapping, user flow diagrams, IA diagrams, and user testing results and iterations) please reach out to me directly. If you would like to see a brief overview of the features and functionality you can refer to this landing page for publicly shared information.
This project is currently in a beta testing phase. I will be updating my site with full information after the official launch and marketing announcement are made in mid September. Images shared above are the final result of Phase 1 of the project. Phase 2 and 3 are currently in design/development stages and will be shared after official announcements have been made.
