Celebration Brunch featuring guest speaker Lana Veenker

CAL-speaker-lana-veenker

Founder and president of Cast Iron Studios Lana Veenker has worked with Hollywood’s top producers, actors and directors on major television series (Grimm, Leverage) and blockbuster movies (Twilight), often without braving Los Angeles traffic and smog.

From her first job as a casting assistant in London to her current position as the president of Cast Iron Studios in Portland, Oregon, Veenker has launched a rewarding career in a creative, green and increasingly global industry that, thanks to technology and film legislation, no longer requires a Hollywood ZIP code in order to succeed.

In her address, Veenker will provide insights and anecdotes on her career in casting, explain why Oregon has become a hotspot for film and television production and explore career prospects in media and advertising.

With more than 20 years of experience in the entertainment industry, Veenker’s credits span the globe. Before founding Cast Iron Studios (formerly Lana Veenker Casting) in 1999, she acted in France, England and Venezuela, lived in India and the West Indies, and helped hire European leads for major studios and networks as part of a London casting office. As a member of the International Casting Directors Network (ICDN) and the Casting Society of America (CSA), Lana maintains strong partnerships worldwide. She speaks French and Spanish, and frequently lectures in the United States and abroad. In a single week, she’s been known to sway legislators with compelling arguments for Oregon’s film incentives, fly to Paris to produce a staged reading and top-rope up the side of an Austrian WWII anti-aircraft tower.
