When we imagine our characters, we often cast the roles in our heads. It’s a great way to envision the movie that will be born from your script. When you write, is that where the process stops for you?
Unless you have direct contacts, the strongest asset you possess to attract brilliant actors is your talent. Creating three-dimensional, conflicted characters in unique and authentic stories is the key to attach the best names to elevate your script.
In this session, writers will hear directly from professional actors what they look for when a script comes across their desk, what turns their “Maybes” into “Yes’s.” and what are the convincers that will make them happily work for scale (and sometimes even for free!).
