Wow, I'd love a response like that; wish we had something even close to Craiglist in the UK!

I'd have to agree that you should lock down your dates first, preparation and organisation are everything. You need to be in control because once one little thing goes wrong everything can spiral.

Also, if there's any nudity, definitely mention that. "Nudity Required". Don't ever drop that on someone the day of, or during call backs. "Oh BTW, you're okay appearing topless right?"

I put the question on the audition form usually unless that's the only role I'm looking for..

What's an audition form?

nycastings and backstage actually ask with each character breakdown if nudity is required. With Mandy (I'm pretty sure) you manually give breakdowns. Since I know many actresses won't appear topless I make sure it's there. It's useless to audition someone that wouldn't be able to do the role for that reason.

It's the form they fill out at my audition where they give all their contact info, confirm their availability on the shooting dates, sign a release for the footage I shoot of their audition, etc...

Like I said, if the only role I was considering them for require nudity then yeah I'd ask that question before I brought them in, but if they were a potential candidate for multiple roles they can check the box on the form.
