Panel of Casting Directors

Casting Directors, part 1

The question actors often ask is, “Where’s the work?” The answer is: via Casting Directors! These hard-working decision makers determine who gets invited to audition for a role. Actors need to know more about what casting directors do, how they think, what they look for, what their responsibilities are, and what they expect from actors.

The Network Austin Mixer will be offering that information and more at our next 2 mixers in April & May when we’ll feature panels of casting directors at both mixers. Actors are invited to bring 4 headshots & resumes (stapled together, back-to-back, 1 set per company) to each panel for submission to the casting directors.

We will start the program with a brief introduction by each casting director, telling the audience about themselves, their experience, and their companies. Then we’ll open the floor to the audience for a Q&A session. Please keep your questions succinct so that as many can be answered as possible.

Casting Directors Panel on Wednesday, April 13th:

☆    Brad Burton, CSA & Kimberly Burton, CSA, Burton Casting

☆    Diana Guthrie, CSA, Diana Guthrie Casting

☆    Rachel Flanagan, Rachel Flanagan Casting

☆    Donise L. Hardy, CSA, A Casting Place

Then at our May Mixer we’ll present a panel of 5 more outstanding casting directors representing another 4 casting companies. So, plan on joining us for both mixers, first in April and again in May. Arrive early for a cold libation, networking, and meeting new friends with like minds. Enjoy a fun-filled evening with other guests and get the info you need to know about these casting directors, what they do, what they are looking for, landing the roles, upcoming projects, and much more!

  1. I was just wondering if this was free to non-members? I am coming from Corpus and want to make sure that I don’t need tickets for this event.
