Lisa Marie has cast both local and regional projects, the most recently accredited Extraction starring Bruce Willis and Bus 657 featuring Robert De Niro. This was an amazing opportunity for young actors to showcase their range and potential LIVE especially considering the industry is slowly transitioning to taped auditions.
Invaluable insight into the casting process was provided. All students received pertinent feedback from their prepared performances that were pulled from current film & TV material . Even student Conway Solomon with Hale Talent was called into audition for her casting agency shortly after the workshop ended!!
Mrs. Dupree is fantastic with kids and spoke on a level that they understood. She answered all questions and hung out with students for 3 hours! We will have her back soon in the near future when her busy schedule clears up. Stay tuned for more Reel Big Easy Casting Workshops in 2016...a great way to get to know casting directors.
