Time for another update!
On Friday, Sept 22nd, we hosted a meet-and-greet with an acting coach at our casting studios. She studied with Sanford Meisner at the Neighborhood Playhouse and Uta Hagen at HB Studio, then worked for about 16 years a casting director in New York and LA. It was great fun to socialize with actors that I usually only get to see in casting sessions.
Last week, we started prepping and casting a SAG Modified feature, a plasma TV spot and another Lottery commercial, while also taking care of bookings on the MOW. In all, we booked about half of the MOW roles locally (all the day players, of course, plus one of the co-stars). We just got word this week about the co-star role, so that was exciting for the actress who landed it. They were holding off until they’d cast the actor who was to play her husband, to make sure it was a good match. Once we got word that he was confirmed, we knew she was in. She’ll work eight days and get a nice screen credit. Kudos!!
This past weekend was busy with the screening of a film that shot here, a theatre company fundraiser and the going away party of a local comedian. Tonight, I’m taking a talent agent out for a late birthday celebration. In fact, I should get going, since our reservations are for 7:45! I’ll have to finish catching up later.
