Interview with Kimberly Graham
I was very lucky to get an interview with Kimberly Graham. She's a super busy casting director who's always working on tons of major projects, and what's even crazier is that it was her birthday the day we did this interview! But she's an amazingly generous person who spent about an hour with me in what I feel is a fantastic interview all about the casting process and exactly what actors should and should NOT do when submitting and auditioning for projects.
- Know the casting process in great detail. Kimberly explains the casting process is complete detail and explains why it's so important that actors understand it.
- Even though you might want to ask for feedback, it's not a good idea. We discuss why it's generally a big no-no to ask for feedback or to try to get suggestions from casting directors after an audition, especially if you don't have an agent. The reasons why might surprise you!
- Make sure to keep in touch with casting directors. We discuss some strategies to meet and keep in touch with casting directors. Learn Kimberly herself some of the most accepted and appreciated ways to build relationships (and what to avoid doing) and how you can use those relationships to create opportunities for yourself.
- And lots more...
