Virtual Casting Masterclass: How to Cast Remotely w/ Sarah Clark, CSA

How do you cast your project when you can't be physically in the room with your potential stars? Whether due to COVID-19 or the increasing ease that the Internet has introduced to casting talent from all over the world, the number of projects that are cast virtually is on the rise.

Don't know where to start? Fear not. Sarah Clark, casting director and owner of Compass Casting, is an expert in navigating this terrain. She'll guide you through:

- The casting process with a casting director

- What to look for when you’re casting

- How to cast a project all on your own (if you're brave enough!)

Send your casting questions in advance to!
