Meet The Casting Directors 2016

Meet The Casting Directors 2016

PLEASE NOTE: This event is SOLD OUT.

A great casting director should be one of the first relationships you forge when you set out in pre-production on your feature. The right casting director will add legitimacy to your project, can help you access the best talent for you to assemble a cast that is right for your story and that will appeal to investors.

We’re pleased to present our annual panel event featuring some of the top casting directors specializing¬†in independent film and studio work: Kerry Barden (Spotlight, Love & Mercy, Still Alice), Angela Demo (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, The Stanford Prison Experiment), and Julie Hutchinson (Underworld 5, The Boy). Vice President of the Casting Society of America, Matthew Lessall (Chronic, Rocket Science, Mean Creek) will moderate.

The panel will offer tips on when and how best to approach a casting director; some dos and don’ts to observe; and ways to get around the Catch-22 that faces many indie filmmakers: you can’t get money without a cast and you can’t attach talent without money. They’ll also talk about the growing field of webseries and original internet content.

The event will conclude with a reception to give Members a chance to meet and chat with the panelists.
