So we had the casting session on Monday. Eight people showed up out of over a hundred contacted…frankly, given the weather and the apparent reputation of St. John’s, I’d almost call that a success
Strangely enough, all but one of them were girls. Which kinda sucked for me because I needed to guys for a scene study on Thursday, but it makes me wonder if the men of Cork really are notoriously lazy haha.
Seriously though, the whole thing was done at the last minute so we have no complaints. We are planning another one for after the pitches for the short films, by which time we will know exactly who is making what. I will keep this thread updated with news as I get it.
On a related note, if any actors or actresses who come along to the casting sessions don’t have monologues for their showreels and would like one filmed, we may be able to accommodate you. If anyone is interested in doing that, I guess you can come along to the casting sessions as they come up or contact me either through a PM here or via email (first post).
