As I've mentioned before, the SAG Foundation (a non-profit group that is funded by grants and donations, NOT SAG dues) provides opportunities for actors to meet and read for working Casting Directors FREE! Last week I was fortunate enough to attend two such CAP workshops, and they were a couple of the best workshops I've been to since I moved to town.
Both Geralyn Flood and Bonnie Gillespie shared their casting experiences and plenty of industry insights with us, then gamely answered question after question. And this was all before we got a chance to work. And the scenes we were given were a lot of fun -- both to perform and watch. So, thanks wonderful CDs and thanks SAG Foundation!
