Panel of Casting Directors

Casting Directors

On Wednesday May 13, 2015 The Network Austin Mixer will feature the 2nd of 2 panels of Casting Directors! This is “where the rubber meets the road” so to speak. Scheduled to speak this month are casting directors:

Brenda Ambrize of Brenda J. Ambrize Casting

Rachel Flanagan of Rachel Flanagan Casting

Donise Hardy, CSA of A Casting Place

Beth Sepko, CSA of Beth Sepko Casting

John Williams of The Cast Station

You do not want to miss this informative and fun-filled evening!

Casting Directors are those talented people that producers, studios, ad agencies, production companies, and filmmakers hire to find the right actors for the roles in a particular script or project. In other words, if your agent gets you the opportunity to audition for a casting director, your job is to put your heart, soul and mind into the part… and get hired!

We are grateful to our panels of Casting Directors for graciously offering their time and insights on April 8th & May 13th. So join us for the Q&A sessions, network, meet like minds, have a cold margarita, some great food and get updated about the process from the professionals in-the-know.

All non-represented talent is invited to bring 5 headshots & résumés to this mixer, 1 set per panel speaker. Please staple your headshot to your résumé for each casting director on the panel.

Last Month…

On Wednesday, April 8, 2015, The Network Austin Mixer featured the 1st of our 2 panels of casting directors, and we extend our deepest thanks to speakers:

Sally Allen & Toni Cobb-Brock of Brock/Allen Casting
Vicky Boone of Vicky Boone Casting
Brad Burton, CSA, & Kimberly Burton, CSA of Burton Casting

For those of you who missed our April 8th mixer we wish to share with you our “April Fools” surprise songs, starring Donise L. Hardy, Gary L. Wimmer, Kerry Ramsay, Kelly Dealyn, Ammie Leonards, and Gayla Gray, featuring sound by Gary L. Wimmer with a little help from Judith Ruder, all of whom took the casting directors and the audience on an unexpected ride via Gary’s short song Make Happen What You Dream About. Gary stumbles through the song… and more… but gets help.

The Network Austin Mixer is now in its 10th year and we deeply appreciate your support, interest, and attendance.

NOTICE: We all know traffic is horrendous, so… come early and carpool if you can. If Baby Acapulco’s parking is full, you may park at either the Capital Inn (just north of Baby A’s) for $5 or at Super 8 motel (just south of Baby A’s) for $8. Be sure to pay the desk person at either motel when you park there so your vehicle doesn’t get towed away and DO NO PARK IN FRONT OF DUMPSTERS!

Mixing & Networking begins @ 6PM, then the Speakers Panel begins @ 6:45.
