Casting Director Insights

Casting Director Insights

We have a section talking about casting directors but why listen to us talk about them, when you can hear the answers directly from the CDs themselves?!

Some of the best CDs in the world have been kind enough to share their insights with us in zoom chats during the pandemic.

We are releasing videos from a new casting director every few weeks and are so excited to share them with you!
