Creating and Casting: Collaboration Built on Trust presented with CSA

Creating and Casting: Collaboration Built on Trust presented with CSA

Date: Saturday, 6/10

The delicate relationship between the creator and the Casting Director is rarely explored. Often the first to be hired on a project, the Casting Director collaborates with the showrunner from the ground-up to begin fulfilling their vision. Together, they navigate creative preferences, negotiate with agents and managers, take on studio and network input, location casting, actor approvals, and much more. The stronger the relationship, the easier it is to maneuver through the challenges of the process. Join these pairs as we get an inside look at the intricacies of a relationship that hinges on trust and collaboration from one-time gigs to decades of work.

Panelists: Jennifer Euston & Liz Flahive (GLOW), Tracy Lilienfield & Marta Kauffman (Grace and Frankie), Wendy O’Brien & Mike Royce (Enlisted), Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy)
Moderator: Ben Travers (IndieWire)
