CASTING CALL

Actors: Get “cast” in an independent film!

After “Eat, Meet and Greet” (6:00 to 6:30) and “Launch Sequence” (6:30 to 7:45) comes the (mock) “Casting Call” networking game (7:45 to 8:45).

Here’s how it works:

--Wear a name tag numbered to match your resume or headshot

--Brief intros from screenwriters/filmmakers, crew/specialists, actors

--Screenwriters/filmmakers will describe one to three characters from their script

--Speed networking game - screenwriters/filmmakers meet actors

--(Mock) casting announcements
