From Pin, Hold, or Avail to Booking

Your child has moved to the next phase in the audition process. It’s down to the final few, and you hear a magic word: Pinned-Hold-Avail. They used to have slightly different meanings but now they are the same thing. Your child is in the final mix and might book the job.  Or not.  As too many parents can tell you, it’s not over until it’s over, the role is offered and contracts are signed.

Can you do anything to move one of the three hold terms to a booking?  Probably not. The best you may be able to do as a parent is tell your child that production is interested but hasn’t made a choice yet, and then move on until you hear your child has booked.
