THURSDAY @ 7PM: How to Cast Actors for Your Indie Projects Quickly and Cost Effectively (Film, TV, Podcast, etc)


In this Thursday's 7PM event you learn how to cast union and non-union actors in your projects very quickly and cost effectively.

The tools and techniques outlined in his particular workshop work on both union and non-union projects. They'll work best for short films, sizzle reels, pilot pitches, and micro-budget feature films. They will also work well for podcasts, audiobooks, audio dramas, and the voice performances for animated projects. I used the techniques in this workshop to cast and shoot a short film in under three weeks.

Being able to cast and shoot great media with actors is critical because it allows you to create meaningful credits quickly. It lets you show people your work, win awards for your work, and gain the experience and connections you need to do great work going forward.  All of these things are critical to creating an opportunity to produce more and more valuable content going forward. 

If your are tired of waiting to write, direct, and/or produce, you'll find this workshop very valuable. What never works in building a career is "waiting to work".  If you aren't currently working on a project for someone else, it's smart to be producing something cost effectively and profitably on your own.
