Are you new to Actorsite and our Casting Director events?

When you, as a new actor, attend Actorsite Casting
Director events, you may have endless questions for the Casting
Directors because you may feel out of the loop in
the casting process.

As you attend more and more workshops, you
grow comfortable with Casting Directors and a
picture emerges of how the industry works.

Actors love Casting Director events because it’s a time
for them to practice audition skills without the pressure
of having to book the job.

Creative artists develop relationships with creative
casting directors that can last a lifetime. It’s important
that actors ENJOY the casting process, because the they
will spend more time auditioning than they will working
in the early stages of a career.

Producers are spending MILLIONS of dollars on their
projects. You want them to hire you.

If producers are going to risk MILLIONS, and you want
them to consider you, YOU, as a PRO-ACTIVE ARTIST,
need to make sure you understand the industry and have
your own connections and relationships.

CASTING DIRECTORS TEACH KILLER CLASSES AT THE ACTORSITE!

1. They provide valuable inside information to actors.
2. Actors perform representative material under the
watchful eye of industry professions.
3. Many times they provide written feedback that actors can
take to their acting coach for future improvement.

It’s always a WIN – WIN at the Actorsite! NICE!

All the best,
