Casting for Your Film Thursday, July 7, 2022
Where & When
Remind Me
You've got the script, now you need the actors!  In this workshop, Anne Chapman will share how to run a casting call; how to get your script in front of an actor; how to work with a casting director; what types of parts would someone want to play; basics on SAG-AFTRA considerations; and a general idea of fees and expectations. This workshop is a public part of the Narrative Script Development Fellowship for July.
