Casting callback tips
I'm running a shoot where we are casting 3 actors for a video where they will be singing & shaving. I have casting specs that I'm working from and have gone through a batch of potential guys. I've picked out my favorites which seem to mesh with the agency's.
My question is, on the day of callbacks - what all should I be looking for from the guys? I am thinking of having them run through the different ways I'd like them to play the actions - normal, medium, high energy. I also have some specific comedic gags that i'd like to see them play.
Is there anything else I should consider? This is my first time as director on the callbacks, normally I'm playing art director.
