Pros: - Excellent site in a relative under-served niche
- 165 scenes
- Updating regularly
- Many good looking models
- Most models are Ďamateurí
- ome porn stars early in their careers
- Now uploading in 1280p
- Packaged with another excellent amateur site
- Male talent who never tries to upstage the models
- Excellent camerawork and editing
- Innovative use of split screen and picture-in-picture
- Supports download managers
- Bills through CCBill
Cons: - Only the most recent updates are HD. Older scenes can be low resolution
Bottom Line: Lately Iíve developed an interest in Ďcastingí videos and this is one of the better sites in that niche. A membership here includes a membership to two other sites: Exploited College Girls and Net Video Girls. ECG is a great site and makes a membership here better. NVG isnít terrible, but, in my opinion, it is the weakest site of the three. I should point out that the TBP review doesnít say anything about the additional sites but Iíve joined twice now and both times that was the deal. I just checked again and it is still being offered.

The siteís premise is that a guy passes himself off as a porn agent and has women come by to talk about getting into the business. The setting is an office and the scene is recorded using two cameras on tripods and a handheld POV camera. The Ďagentí explains the business to the model and then she is encouraged to make a demo tape that the agent will then use to get work for her. The demo consists of the model getting naked, masturbating, performing oral on the agent and then getting fucked. Many of the scenes have some anal sex but it is usually short. Even if you arenít as big a fan of anal as I am, the anal isnít obtrusive. Some may criticize the site as being too formulaic. It is that, but in my opinion, the formula works so why fix what isnít broken?

Most of the models are unknown to me, though there are a few who went on to porn careers. Tanner Mayes (as Evangeline), Kacey Jordan, Shawna Lenee (as Kara), Amia Miley and Chastity Lynn are here, early in their careers. While there is no way that the premise could be real (given the paperwork involved to do porn), the models play the role well and really add to the feel of the scene. There is some variety in models with different body types, though the majority are Caucasian and petite. Most of the models are very good looking. There are a few videos with pregnant models if youíre into that.

There have been negative comments about the male Ďagent.í I donít share those opinions because I find that he knows that members arenít joining to see him so he is unobtrusive.

Using two stationary cameras and a POV camera could be the siteís weak point, but it isnít. The camera work and editing are great and really work well for the atmosphere. One feature that I really like is the use of split screen or picture-in-picture. For example, the model may be bent over the desk in a standing doggy position and one half of the screen is a camera pointing at her face while the other half is the POV camera held above the modelís ass.

There are currently about 165 videos on the site with most being about 30 minutes long. The site does update regularly, but since my membership expired four days ago I canít confirm the update schedule but my recollection is that it is at least one new scene per week.

The scenes are only available in one file type, WMV, but they are available as clips or as the full scene. There are usually two resolutions available (labelled as high and low). I only downloaded the highest resolution full scenes so I canít comment on the lower resolution or clips.

Speaking of resolution, there is good news and bad news. The good news is that the site appears to have undergone a re-work and at the same time it looks like the last 12-15 uploads are available in 1280x720 at 3500kb/s and 29 fps. These look great. File sizes are between 500-800MB, though there are a few that hit a gigabyte. The bad news is that before the site started uploading HD the resolutions were lower. With a lot of the older scenes on the site that can be pretty low. Most are 768x432 (which still look good), some are 576x324, some are 640x360 and some 480x360. Obviously the smaller resolution files were uploaded a long time ago and donít look good by todayís standards.

The site supports download managers and I had no issues with links timing out. I didnít encounter any speed reductions or download limits. The site bills through CCBill.

The bottom line is that this is an excellent site if you like this niche. Itís packaged with another excellent site (and a mediocre one too). The models are good looking and the scenes are fun to watch. The production values are good with good camerawork and editing. While the site has started uploading HD videos that was only recently so most of the videos are of lower resolution. Not only do I highly recommend this site but it is on my list of sites to regularly rejoin to download new scenes.

pat362 (367) How does the shooting style of the newer stuff compare to the older content? My biggest issue with this site was that it was so badly shot that it was nearly unwatchable. The fact that he takes his face out of the video is also a problem for me because I need a connection to happen between both performers and that's ruined when one of them has a circle hiding his face whenever his face should be in the shot.

The static cameras are a problem for me but if he could actually use and handheld camera properly then that might be okay. I keep getting a special offer to join but since I have only saved a tiny portion of the past videos that I suspect the newer stuff will also not work for me.

I found the shooting style has improved. The static cameras get repositioned depending on the action and where it's happening in the room, so that helps too. I find that his POV abilities are very good.

The male performer still uses the circle to obscure his face. I don't find that to be a deal breaker because he mostly manages to keep his face out of the shots anyway.

What's the cost of the special offer?

See the fact that he goes out of his way to avoid showing his face is a problem for me because that means he'll avoid shooting from certain angles for fear that too many shots will have his face in them and he will have to use that stupid circle or he'll have to edit too much content to remove his face.

Mind you this guy is a genius when compared to the idiots at girls do porn. They also avoid showing the performers face and they use an actual camera operator but the shots are 100 times worse at GDP than here.

The sad part for me is that both sites manage to hire some really cute unknowns with great potential but completely mess the shoots so that these one and gone girls can never make it onto my wish list for more stuff.

I agree that I'd like to see many of these girls join the business and make more porn. Both this site and Exploited College Girls have some really attractive unknowns.

I find both Back Room Casting Couch and Exploited College Girls to be among the best in this niche. Broke Amateurs could have been a contender but instead of improving file resolution they've actually reduced it.

TheSquirrel (53) Another excellent review. I'm a member there currently and I agree about ECG and BCC being two of the best sites around, especially if you're into the casting niche, which I am.

One of the biggest downsides of this type of niche is having your one chance of seeing a porn video and photo set of a beautiful non professional girl wasted because of ineptitude. Occasionally you see what could be an amazing porn experience being completely ruined. It's a hard job, and I couldn't do it, but I wish some of them occasionally did it better. Having said all that, I think these two sites get the balance right most of the time.

Thanks for your comments.

Has the site been redesigned in the past few days? My membership expired last week and when I went back to the tour pages they look different now.

Can't speak for broke amateurs because their preview section is so poor that I would never join based only on that. True that the girls are really cute for the other two sites and sad that most never do more than these sites. I know the guy isn't located in California and that's why most of the girls don't make the jump to the industry.

P.S: I forgot to mention but the special offer is 19.99$ for the 3 sites mentioned yesterday.

That's a good price. I doubt I'll take the leap though since it was only a few days ago that my membership expired.

As for the models, some of them could easy become A-list models without much effort.

It looks different to the last time I was there, which was last year. I don't remember that many ads on the home page either. There's also bonus membership to Net Video Girls.

It was pretty plain but functional even a couple of weeks ago.

I'm not a fan of Net Video Girls. The site is a mess and the videos aren't great either. I did download some stuff but not much of it.

Net Video Girls wastes a lot of talent. Most of the time it looks like a chimpanzee is holding the camera, capturing random shots of anything that wanders in and out of view. However, I don't remember it being part of the deal before.

LOL! I think that's the best possible description of that site. I find the models are far less attractive than with ECG and BRCC too.

uscue (39) Good review, I;ll probably join soon. Another casting site you may end up liking is Czech Casting, part of the CzechAV network. 3 month long member so far as I've also gotten into the casting genre recently. They have a bunch of content, but it's all in Czech -- thankfully they have subtitles.

One issue I have with the European casting sites is that so much of the setup involves the interaction between the model and the agent. If it isn't in English I find that detracts from the scene a lot. Not enough to avoid the site though, so I will have a look. Thanks for the tip.
