This class will include a Q&A and a Prepared Reading session with an experienced casting professional.
Actors will choose a scene that most appropriately represents them from Film/Television. Actors are encouraged by the casting director to choose a scene that plays to your strengths. The scene should be 2-3 pages long from Film/Television. A reader will be available on ZOOM during the class.
All actors will need to email a PDF. of their chosen scene to firstname.lastname@example.org for the reader by 9:00am PST on February 26th. The subject needs to be Casting Access Remote w/ Seth Caskey. The body of the email MUST include the role that the reader will be reading.
CASTING DIRECTOR BIO
Working with Elizabeth Barnes since 2015, I have been involved with such projects as the Emmy nominated Netflix series GLOW, What/If, Siren and Blood & Treasure. Our work on GLOW also earned us 2019 & 2020 Artios Awards nominations alongside fellow casting director Jen Euston.
I recently partnered with Liz as co-casting director on the Quibi short form series, Don’t Look Deeper directed by Catherine Hardwicke, and the Freeform Pilot, Close Up, executive produced by Pete Nowalk.
I was first drawn to casting while still pursuing a career as an actor. Once given the opportunity to work on this side of the room—I was hooked. I love what I do, I love actors and I am always looking for opportunities to work with and support other creatives in the film industry.
