Meet the Insiders: Casting for Film

#sxsw #Insiders

New for 2013, Meet the Insiders is an opportunity to participate in vital discussions on the innovations and developments in the world of film across varying topics. Moderators will start by introducing and getting to know the Insider for the first 10 minutes, but the next 20 are an open forum where the audience is able to ask questions, discuss trends, connect with the film community, and gain insight and understanding of the industry from the insiders at the forefront of their respective fields.

This session, moderated by Rochell Rose from The Screen Actors Guild Foundation, gives the audience the opportunity to talk to two casting agents, Beth Sepko from Beth Sepko Casting / 3rd Coast Extras and Alexa Fogel from Beech Hill Films and gain essential information on the casting process before starting work on your next project. Get a better understanding of what to look for and how to get the best out of the audition process.
