"I joined Fishpond two months ago and since then got cast in a new Meteor commercial. It was a great opportunity and has also been an excellent addition to my showreel. Cheers to Ali and all at Fishpond.
I'm loving Fishpond because it gives you opportunities to be seen for a variety of jobs. They're always extremely nice and supportive when auditioning. It offers you more control over your career and the personal webaddress is great to use as a website for yourself if you don't already have one.

I recently returned home to Ireland from the US, where immediately I joined Fishpond and a couple weeks in booked 'Romeo & Juliet Unplugged'. Just about to run out the door to try and land my first commercial, Thanks Fishpond. Everybody needs to get wet..... Jump in!
I love Fishpond because it gives me information on auditions in Dublin and gives me the opportunity to apply for these roles. Thank you Fishpond.
I am loving Fishpond because it allows actors to view castings and decide themselves if they feel a role is right for them. This unique freedom gives you the chance to meet casting directors, directors and others in a role you feel most suited to. It's an invaluable resource for anyone pursuing acting work.
Fishpond is empowering! It gives the actor control of their career and is a great way to find out what's going on out there in the big bad scary world of acting!

I'm loving Fishpond because as a freelance self represented actor it is one of the few avenues through which I can access work and like all " fishing expeditions " now and again luck smiles on one and recently I had a catch!
I am loving Fishpond because...thanks to the team I got chosen for a production. I find the Fishpond team extremely professional and friendly. I am delighted to be part of Fishpond as it knows how to take care of and look after its members. May they continue their good work.
Ali and team are always so helpful and friendly, totally on the ball with what's going on casting wise in Dublin. Membership is worth every penny & thanks to my last job... Santa was able to stop by this Christmas! Right on Fishpond x
I've lost count of how may people have contacted me through Fishpond, not to mention getting cast 3 times and countless auditions. People in the industry use Fishpond as it's the number 1 actor database and it's clear to see why. Many Thanks!!
As an Actor who worked primarily on the stage I wanted to try my hand at TV and Film, but without an agent or relevant experience how could I achieve this? The answer is Fishpond.ie. Over the last year and thanks to Fishpond I have attended many auditions and put together introductions and monologues. I have also been lucky enough to secure a part on a Corporate DVD and more recently a Television advert. Now I am in a position to put together a showreel and hopefully progress further.
Dear lovely peeps at Fishpond, Now why do I love Fishpond? One day I was photocopying forms for the dole office I got a phone call from Gillian Reynolds for a job she later cast me in! Thanks Fishpond, I dipped my toe in, and it was lovely :)

Well it all sounded a little fishy to start off with when I heard about it but then when I took the leap I couldn't believe how in the loop I was straight away. Now all I can say is 'what a great catch'. People in the industry can now get their hooks into me easier & all my info is on show for everyone to see. Plus no audition will ever escape me. I'm a big fish at last ..gloop glopp!
I have been on Fishpond almost a month now. It's an amazing website that gives actors a great platform to be seen for auditions. I'm really grateful to everybody at Fishpond for all the opportunities it has given me at this stage in my career.
Well obviously I'm a huge Fishpond lover, securing one gig not only got me out of a tight spot at the time (you actor people know the tight spot I'm talking about ;-] ), but it paid for my Fishpond membership multiple times! But my favourite part of my Fishpond story is how well perceived my profile is internationally. I moved to Chicago, U.S. last year and it is great to be able to pass around my card (yes they do that here) with my Fishpond link on it. They can see my headshot, CV and my videos, which is great as I haven't got a demo yet! So there you go, Fishpond has travelled and Chicago loves it! Best wishes for all the future.
After being away from acting for a while it's very hard to break back in, thanks to the Pond I have my own website page to forward to directors, producers & agents.
It's very easy to use and update and as an independent actor I've had 5 auditions in the last couple of months that I probably never would have landed on my own.
I'd urge all actors to join now! Best of all I'm working again next week. Kudos to all at Fishpond!
