Casting is a crucial creative element of any production - and yet the craft and skills needed to put together a successful and exciting cast are often overlooked. The Casting Handbook explains the casting process from beginning to end and covers everything producers and directors needs to know - as well as proving a fascinating and illuminating read for actors. The book explores: * how to prepare a breakdown * where to source actors * how to prepare for a casting session * how to make casting decisions * how a cast is put together * how deals are done * ethics and the law, with special reference to casting children * how a casting director contributes to the initial development of the script * how the casting works from fringe theatre to Hollywood blockbusters The Casting Handbook considers actors', producers', agents' and directors' relationship with a casting director, the day to day work that is casting, and how approaching it in a professional and informed manner can make the difference to the final product. Including interviews with actors, agents, directors, casting directors and producers; case studies; exercises; and a fact file of useful templates and contacts, this book offers a thorough induction into the casting process, suitable for students and early career professionals in any media.
