If you are registered with Central Casting and would like to be considered as a Hand Double on future productions, please email us your hand photos! We will upload the photos of your hands to your Central Casting profile and will reach out to you if you are a match for future hand double opportunities.

1.) What's a Hand Double? A Hand Double is a person whose hands will be filmed in a scene as a substitute for an actor's hands. This means that in order to be considered as a Hand Double, your hands must match the same skin tone and general shape as the actor's hands.

2.) How to submit your hand photos:
Please email CURRENT photo(s) of your hands in NATURAL LIGHT to LOUISIANAINFO@CentralCasting.com. Please be sure to take photos of your hands next to a RULER or DOLLAR BILL so we can determine the size of your hands. Please see the photo below for reference. CLEAN, BARE nails are best.

As Louisiana filming remains busy, we have a reminder for everyone. Due to the framework of the incentive program, a good portion of filming will take place outside of the New Orleans metropolitan area. Most productions will not provide any mileage allowances as they expect casting to hire locals.

Many years ago, there were Facebook pages created to assist with carpooling to distant locations. While we can't endorse any specific pages, we encourage you to talk to your peers about these groups and utilize them to help you work on as many projects as possible.

Friendly reminder from your Central Casting NOLA team!
