IndieTalk's Resident Guru
The way it happens is a director will put out a casting notice.this is some really valuable information, thanks a lot.
i'm really wondering if i should try for smaller schools first, then make my way up, because i have zero confidence if i could make it, but i'm not sure how does it happen, should i ask to be in a short film even though i never acted before?
Actors will respond and an audition will be scheduled.
The actors will audition for the part and the director will chose.
Many directors - especially ones just starting out - will choose
actors with no experience.
So you should look for local filmmakers who need actors and
ask them for a part even though you have never acted before.
