This is the time to address the entire group directly. The amount of time allotted each person and the number of people pitching may be limited by how many sign up. Arrive early and sign up to ensure you have a time slot. Bring and distribute any promotional and/or printed material you want. As our attendees know, our Mixers provide a great opportunity to meet like minds and network, so join us onand make use of this unique opportunity!
We want to extend our deepest thanks to Casting Director Nan Dutton for being our Guest Speaker on Wednesday November 12th! She was extremely knowledgeable, well prepared, passionate, inspiring, and full of wit and insight. After her excellent presentation, Nan continued to speak with individual attendees for another hour. Thank you so much, Nan!
Nan’s 35 year career has consisted of casting, acting, and teaching. She began casting in LA as assistant to Casting Director Reuben Cannon, followed by four years as an associate with Lynn Stalmaster. While casting both film and television with Stalmaster/Howard, she worked on numerous projects such as Jagged Edge, 9½ Weeks, and The Thorn Birds. In 1985, she established her own company Nan Dutton Casting.
As of 2004, Nan has taught workshops at various studios, SAG, and lectured at AFI. Having been an actor and casting director, she recognizes a void that exists for most actors. She hopes to close that void by teaching the craft of acting, television/ film camera technique, but more importantly what actors need to know about working in the entertainment business.
