Kickstart Your Career In Casting and attend our Free April Taster Sessions

There is an art to Casting: it is an essential and often unrecognised element of all film, television and theatre productions. It is also one of the least understood jobs in the industry, largely because it is conducted behind closed doors.

Casting Directors and their associates need a wide range of skills at their disposal; an encyclopaedic knowledge of actors, instinct about which actors would be best for a role, and the ability to articulate and demonstrate the reasons why. Keen observation and organisational skills are essential to becoming successful in this field.
