24-3601J The Art and Business of Casting: Casting Director Workshop for Cinema


Course examines the casting process from packaging a film to production. Creative casting will be explored as a necessary preparatory process undertaken by Casting Directors, Directors and Producers. Script roles must be embellished and further defined through this Director-Producer-CD collaboration, which yields a set of aesthetic parameters for auditioning actors and their associated performances. The workshop will give the successful student an understanding of how to recruit actors through promotion, communication with agents and managers, and the rigor of in-person auditions. A comprehensive look at auditioning will include creation of sides, assessment of script readings and monologues and callbacks. Students will also focus on hiring both non-SAG and SAG actors and how to negotiate actor work-for-hire agreements.
