The Actor's Shop
So, lots of people here are telling me they are auditioning. Been receiving emails and tapes from more and more people this past week. It's definitely picking up.
I agree it's picking back up! Woohoo!
Looks like on a lot of shows they are hiring one core group of background people who will be multipurpose, stand-ins, photos doubles and extras. So they will pull from the same group throughout the season instead of hiring new people all the time. Just things I'm hearing about the way we will be doing things differently.
Also at least on our show, they are hoping to find some of the larger characters locally if possible, when normally it would have been a given that they would come out of LA. Things we hadn't had to consider before also include not being able to necessarily consider talent from over-seas or Canada as easily as we used to.
@courtneycummings1126 I learned a lot in my first casting meeting of the season.
