Living the Dream: Amber’s Vlog #6: Things I Learned From Casting


I learned a lot from casting a few projects here and there –
(and interning at some great offices), and I wanted to share some experiences with you.

Sorry it’s long, it’s hard to know what to share and what to hold back over the internet, so I had to keep everything very vague, but I hope it helps you in some small way. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask – or better yet, ask a real casting director who knows way, way more than I do. I bet you can find one on twitter 😉

Here are some links I mentioned, as well as links to things related to casting and self producing that I wish I had when I first moved to town. Research to your heart’s content:

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have another casting space you like to rent out, and I’ll add it to my list!
