Once you have a script you love in your hands, one of the next tasks is deciding which actors can convey your vision. In this workshop you will learn:

– The ins and outs of going union
– Prepping your Character Breakdowns and imagining characters in a new way
– How to make decisions that will affect your Casting Call and the talent it will attract, such as writing for diversity
– What to include in a Casting Call that will draw high caliber talent to your film, such as timelines and instructions for self-tape submissions
– Preparing actor sides
– Sorting the multitude of preliminary responses you will get (setting up your sorting structure is key!)
– Making ‘first-cut” decisions on headshots, resumes, and possibly demo reels
– Conducting call backs
– Forming your casting decisions and making the deal

6pm – 10pm Pacific Time
