Marketing Yourself in Today’s Industry – This rare, behind-the-scenes look at the casting process sheds light on what it takes to get noticed, communicate most effectively with CDs and build real long-term working relationships necessary to sustain the acting career.

The Casting Process – This panel, consisting of two casting directors and two agents, will focus on broadening your understanding of the casting process, the agent’s contribution and how to use this information to your advantage.

ALL PARTICIPANTS WILL BE ENTERED TO WIN THE FOLLOWING:

A CASTING DIRECTOR SIT-DOWN – 4 people at each session will spend 5 minutes with one of the casting directors. It will take place immediately after The Casting Process session.

AGENT ECO-CASTS - 10 actors looking for representation will be filmed doing a monologue which will then be sent to agents to view through Breakdown Services’ Eco Cast system. (Filming will be scheduled and then taped at Breakdown Services in New York.)

A ONE YEAR CASTING ABOUT SUBSCRIPTION – Winning actors will be able to utilize the newest tool in the marketing process for a full year.
