Casting director feedback on ill prepared actors
In the interest of letting you guys know what the feedback is from Casting Directors, here’s a note we received about a casting today that points out how important it is to be prepared, and how many people are counting on you to do so. Not showing up ready to go is a poor reflection on you/your agency and costs the casting director valuable time as well as money. Your reputation suffers and you take the opportunity from someone else who would happily devote the time necessary to bring their best game to the audition.
PLEASE TELL ME THAT YOU HAVE TOLD YOUR TALENT WHICH ROLES THEY ARE READING FOR (we did tell our talent, by the way). ABOUT 50% OF THE FOLKS AUDITIONING TODAY DID NOT KNOW THEIR ROLE. FOR TOMORROW, DON’T SEND ANYONE WHO DOESN’T TAKE THE TIME TO PREPARE. THIS IS A HUGE JOB THAT I WAS HOPING TO SHOW THE CLIENT THAT ATLANTA HAD GOOD TALENT AS THEY ARE CASTING THIS IN LA AND NY.
I’M KEEPING A LIST OF NAMES TO LET YOU KNOW WHO WAS ILL PREPARED.
