The Casting Process: Both Sides presented by CSA

The Casting Process: Both Sides presented by CSA

Date: Saturday, June 9

What conditions set the stage for a break-out performance, or the perfect ensemble? In some cases, it may be a spark – or familiarity – between performer and casting director, each experiencing the casting process from two different points of view, with the same goal in mind: to bring a character to life. In this conversation, we look at the art of casting from both perspectives, as renowned casting directors and their actors come together to discuss what, exactly, makes someone right for the role — and how to know “it” when you see it.

Panelists: Alexa L. Fogel (The Wire),Taylor Dearden (Search & Destroy), Marc Hirschfeld (Sweet/Vicious), Dominique Fishback (The Deuce)
Moderator: Ben Travers (IndieWire)
