"PerformerTrack has really given me an edge. The audition section lets me note what I wore and who I met with so I return to callbacks dressed correctly and with the names of the people I met at the first audition. The Breakdowns section also gives me hard numbers on how many projects I've booked, and what my income-to-expense ratio is. It's an invaluable tool!"

Actor | Facing Fame
"It is terrific. When I first started using it I wasn't so sure. But I tracked along and after 4 auditions all of sudden, I got a callback. I had all my wardrobe logged and the names of the casting people who did the first audition. When I walked into the callback I knew everyone there including, which I didn't even know, that the producer was one of the people in the first audition. Was I surprised. But when I knew everyone by name they were quite impressed. In fact they booked me on the spot and gave me the lead part. That is powerful. Thanks and good job. I have continued tracking with great results. Bravo and Bravo!"

"I posted a bulletin for my 247 MySpace "friends" regarding Holdon Log (because I really believe it's a great product). You can read it below…Hey friends, I don't post bulletins, as you know unless they will be of great service or amusement to a large percentage of my friends. This one I believe will. So...here's a public service announcement for my actor friends. There's software that'll get you completely organized as an actor in terms of your auditions, bookings, contacts, mileage, income & expenses, calendar & breakdowns. It's completely worth the price. Say you book a film or are in a showcase you can email every casting director you've auditioned for in the past year, 6 months, etc. You can even include a personalized note about their dog if say that's what you talked about at your audition & you were smart enough to make a note of it in your "notes" section. Just pull them up from the info you've entered from every audition you've ever been on. And the software allows you to keep track of what you wore, how you felt about the reading, etc so you can quickly access the info to see how that's affecting your booking average, how many auditions you went on in the past week, month, year etc. It sounds complicated but it's extremely simple & user friendly."
