Casting Directors. (Click HERE for TIPS from GREY’S ANATOMY CASTING DIRECTOR JAMIE CASTRO.)
The gatekeepers between you and the jobs.
Is it important that you have a few casting directors on your side?
Yeah, it totally is. (Click HERE for TIPS from IT CASTING ASSOCIATE COCO KLEPPINGER.)
How do you make that happen for yourself?
Do work that they will come and see.
A great play.
A super fun musical.
A showcase at a reputable improv school (Groundlings, UCB, Second City). Get out there!
It’s their job to find YOU and they will.
You can also…
Pick one casting director who casts things that you believe you are right for and make it your mission to let them know you exist.
Not in a creepy, annoying way, but in a outgoing and proactive way.
Send them notes congratulating them on successes.
Attend workshops that they are speaking at.
Be super familiar with their work.
Become an expert on ALL THINGS THEM so that when you have your shot to get in front of them, you are ready.
It only takes ONE good relationship to make a career happen.
Make it happen!
