Casting Preparations

Paperblanks (1)
You think an actress just acts? You’re damn wrong. There’s a lot of preparations before I go to a Casting or a Movie Set. Learning the lines is the easiest part …

a good preparation is everthing (not only in my job), so I always try to:
– read the screenplay or the scene (you not always get the whole script) several times
– take first notes (at the moment I’m using the Paperblanks Notebook, love the paper quality)
– learn the lines 
– write down the facts
– concentrate on the figure’s biography
– answer the preparation questions
– from time to time I do a video-analysis (boy, thats challenging!)
– go through the scene with a colleague
If its possible (sometimes castings are quite spontaneous) I try to know the lines 3 days before
becoming a whole new person & biography within a few days is hard work but
it’s the most exciting part of my job.

Another excitement are the 400 Facebook Wedefans!! Thank you so much, guys!

Beautiful planner dear. That is a lot of prep work. Casting is Hard. I’ve seen avatar casting before when the script is not even confirm and everything is in CG so need to imagine from scratch! You Must have a wonderful imagination dear ❤
