thanks! it looks like i missed out since the number on the site was wrong this whole time... how did you know their real number? did they give it to you at open call or something?

They have different numbers. The number that I got was provided by one of the booking staff at the office. There are other numbers for different shows.

I've never attended an open call with Amerifilm. I actually worked on a commercial several years ago, that was booked by Amerifilm.
I get calls from them once in a while when they need Asian talents for either backgrounds or principle parts.

Instead of contacting them regarding future casting - it'd be better to wait for them to contact you. (Unless at the open call,, they asked you to call them on regular basis)
