Show Notes

In this special bonus episode of The Acting Podcast, Risa and Steve spoke with an incredible group of Casting Directors (in a Zoom roundtable) who are sharing challenges, open calls, and calls for reels on social media, and doing Instagram Lives, all with the intention of being in collaboration with actors and to keep their own artistry alive during these challenging time.

Erica Bream, Jason Kennedy, Ramani Leah, Seth Caskey, Cara Chute Rosenbaum, Andrea Bunker, Becky Silverman, and Ryan Glorioso are all offering generously to artists all over the world in ways to bring actors’ unique voices to our collective work right now. We were so moved by what they had to say about the gorgeous, brave work they’re seeing from thousands of artists around the globe, and we hope this episode will bring inspiration and encouragement to you and artists everywhere!
