Casting Hothouse returns in 2017

The Equity Foundation’s hugely popular Casting Hothouse will return to Australia and New Zealand in September and October 2017.

Casting Hothouse

We are thrilled to welcome aboard our new sponsors, Screen Queensland, which will see the Hothouse visit Brisbane for the first time, as well as our friends at the New Zealand Film Commission, who have generously helped us bring the Hothouse to Auckland since 2012.

This is a unique opportunity to work on your audition, accent and acting techniques in a series of intensive workshops with leading casting directors.

The Casting Hothouse is designed to give Equity members every opportunity to succeed in the local and international market.

The 2017 Casting Hothouse will feature:
US feature film casting director Kerry Barden (Still Alice, Dallas Buyers Club, The Help, Girl on the Train, Pitch Perfect 3)
US TV casting executive Matt Skrobalak (The Good Wife, NCIS, Jane the Virgin)
Local casting directors to be announced.

Applications for Australia and New Zealand have now closed.

The Equity Foundation thanks the following organisations for their generous support of the Casting Hothouse.
