Here we go again. This is the first couple of hours of a casting session I set up. I changed the product name and used different names for the actors to maintain their privacy. Here’s the chart for the casting session: Before
As you can see, it’s five actors at the same time for five different roles. I need all five people to make an audition work. This is a union job, multiple media, and multiple spots, and possibly shooting in LA; therefore, up front, it’s a great paying job (regardless of weather a job is union or non-union, casting sessions are always treated the same). Not sure if this information was conveyed properly to the actors, but when so many actors want a time change or have not told anyone about their availability issues for the audition or shoot date, this is what happens. This is the “frustrating” part that I’m always talking about. Look at this mess.

How can a casting director do their job properly and offer up a great casting session to our client? I thought if everyone could see this maybe, just maybe, it would make an impact.
