Casting actor/actress $$

Just wondering how much do you pay a actor or actress for a short short? I am pretty sure it's probably case by case thingy, but what's the average cost? Any good site to start with would be helpful as well or any kind of input.

Here's the answer from a simple google search: http://www.backstage.com/advice-for-actors/secret-agent-man/costs-low-bu...

TL;DR: $100/day ultra low budget, $268/day modified low budget, $504/day low-budget.

I pay all transportation cost plus a little extra and I make swag for the production, where the main actors get a backing for their Directors chair with name and a star, they get a coffee cup with the movie logo and their photo and often a t-shirt movie logo
I would be smart to haunt thrift stores for nice sweaters to put logos on. I also print up scripts that have main actors name on the cover.

I love that last part! Doesn't cost a thing but gives mad props to the actor/atress!
Thanks Lofar!

Have you joined Stage32 yet? It might help you get familiar with casting calls etc.
The best thing to do would probably be asking a local casting director or emailing an agency, even if you're making a micro budget.
