Angela Calo has spent the majority of her career performing and is a member of SAG-AFTRA and the Actors Equity Association.
While she has no plans to stop entertaining, the call to improve the industry standards for auditioning were too loud to ignore. Therefore, an entrepreneur and mobile app creator was born!
With the app just 8 weeks away from launch, Angela has been meeting with Casting Directors and fellow entertainers in an effort to onboard users. If you are interested in the Gig2Gig App, please subscribe to our updates.
Ms. Calo's business has been accepted into the ViveDC Business Accelerator Cohort and she is working full time towards finding investors, beta testers, and supporters to ensure a successful launch.
The mission of Gig2Gig is not only to provide user friendly features to casting directors, agents, and audition monitors, but also to focus on improving the overall mental health and well being of talent within the industry.
Just by knowing the feedback and/or the outcome of your audition allows you to plan your life! It allows you to move forward, and focus on the next step rather than the 'what if?' No more living with anxiety, wonder, and wait.
Gig2Gig will make sure that artists and casting directors alike have a user friendly and strong platform focused on improved communication between casting and talent at auditions, a more efficient casting process allowing for a larger number of talent to be seen per day, and a more skilled pool of talent thanks to the instant feedback that promotes and encourages artistic growth.
