Casting Comments From The film Riot Guys
This is a great video for anyone who is new to casting or just plain needs some fundamental help with the task. There is nothing worse than a casting director with an attitude. Remember, you are dealing with people and people deserve to be treated with respect.
On the other hand, please make absolutely sure that the talent is coachable as well as capable of pulling off the role they are auditioning for. A bad actor or bad choice of actor can spoil your film.
My little tip:
Sometimes, I will ask an actor to do something ridiculous that makes them feel silly or stupid. If they do it and take it in stride, they are more likely to have the kind of personality to take things in stride on set.
Enjoy, and I’d love to hear your comments below. Make sure to follow on Facebook!
