Casting Lab Uk

We have been invited to repeat our very successful Casting Lab UK at Leeds Beckett University  in January.  The Lab invites professional actors who would be willing to volunteer to be considered for casting in student films, to be interviewed and auditioned by Suzy, with the recording of the interview being put onto a database that can be accessed by Film students at the Northern Film School.  This is a fantastic resource, allowing students to spend some time seeing actors' work in the knowledge that if they contact them, they will be willing to come in and meet and to appear in their films.

A year in the life of TCHB

Cannot believe it has been over a year since we published TCHB!  It has been a real roller coaster ride, taking us far and wide, delivering workshops to actors and producer, directors and writers, documentary filmmakers and fringe theatre practitioners - presenting at film festivals, conferences and seminars, running courses and generally spreading  the word about how important the creative process of casting is...Highlights include a 'Casting Pecha Kucha (really!)' and working with the talented winners of the Ideas Tap Short Film Fund - the book has sold all over the world, and is beginning to be part of syllabuses from California to this space as the story unfolds.
