Yes. As with all businesses, there are many costs associated with operating this site. They include, but are not limited to: high taxes, domain fees, hosting fees, rent, office expenses, site maintenance, professional fees (e.g. CPA, Attorney), customer support, etc.
$10.00/year if you live in one of the 6 states of New England
$14.95/year if you're a minor.

Yes. However, since the site is geared to our regional hard-working actors, we charge $35/year for those residing outside of New England. If you are a member of another "sister" site of NE Actor, the annual fee is lower, see next question.

When submitting you'll need to provide some JPEG, so pick any image. If and when approved, a standard microphone JPEG will be sent to you for immediate uploading. You may not use your own image. We want consistency on the site and for time-starved industry professionals to be able to spot a Voice Artist easily.
Yes. You will be required to:
- Create a modeling album and label it with your print agent, if any.
- Upload modeling photos that PROVE you are a paid model.
Currently, the default mode is "public." This is because members are finding success at being contacted for auditions or work by industry professional and others who need actors - all without them having to log in or have an account. Industry professionals have informed us that they are pleased not to have to pay nor obtain a log in.
Note: many actors are excited to learn that their profile page is easily found by Google search engines. If your Profile Page is set to "private" it 'should' not be found, but since Google is very powerful, we cannot guarantee it.
Absolutely! If you need or desire to keep your Profile Page private, you have 2 privacy choices (found under "Settings") as to who can find you and view your profile:
NOTE-1: if your profile is set to "just my friends" - only logged in members who are your "friends" can find you. Your acting skills, physical traits, etc. are NOT search-able by anyone else. There are 70+ industry professionals using this site to find and contact talent. The vast majority do NOT have logins and therefore cannot be your "friend."
Note-2: if your profile is set to "Our actors" or "Just my friends" - If an industry professional visits NEActor.com with out a login (an account) and uses the search feature, your age range, physical traits, skills, etc. are not search-able. We have had many actors and voice talents found, contacted and hired by industry pros who do not have accounts.
Yes, to a certain extent. You can customize background, colors, styles, etc. You can even move features around. It is very important to put your best foot forward when someone lands on your page. For example, a voice artist should have his or her voice player up near the very top in the middle so the person visiting the page can immediately see and click to hear his/her voice demo.
Read the Move Features page under the "How To..." tab.
Sure. Contact Bradley J. it takes less than 15 minutes for a 1-time enhancement and costs only $10 for every 15 minutes of work.

Absolutely! In fact, there is a special field just for listing another acting web site. We encourage actors to have online presences with legitimate online acting resources.
No. Because it is not a web site that is dedicated to you as an actor. We do encourage members to create Facebook acting "fan" pages and referencing this on their NE Actor Profile Page. Click here for an example.
No. However, always think about how an industry professional will perceive them. Will they get you an audition? an acting job? Will the video or photo impress a casting director?
