Lana Gives Tips to Child Actors on Better.TV

Brooke Carlson of the nationally syndicated program “Better” talks with Casting Director Lana Veenker about getting your child into the biz, no matter where you live.

PS: Just a note that Lana was misquoted when talking about what to look for in a good acting teacher. Good teachers focus on OBJECTIVES (using verbs, actions) not EMOTIONS (i.e. adjectives, mugging, facial expressions).

    Hi Lana, Great interview! Also thought your radio interview on SB621 really clarified just what this bill can do for Oregonians and more than just those who work directly in the film industry. We've been e-mailing our reps today. Hope it helps. 🙂

    Whoa! That was a HUGE glaring error of a misquote if I ever saw one! When I first saw the video, I took notes that good acting teachers focus on emotions. I am soooo glad this got clarified!
