Today’s video is Episode 4 of our pre-production series – Making It. This episode will show you how to hold auditions, how to find the right actors for your project, and how to cast your short film. We take you through a bunch of auditions and the overall casting process so that you can see what it’s like to hold your own casting call for actors.

Casting is a huge part of the filmmaking process and finding the right actors for your short film can make all the difference. When you cast the right actors it makes your job as a director that much easier. It’s important to hold auditions correctly and to find a space that not only makes the actors comfortable but somewhere that you feel good directing actors.

Some actors will become “call-backs” and others might submit themselves through self-tapes. Some actors will have talent agents and managers that you’ll need to go through, and you’ll also want to think about actors unions like SAG.

This episode also shows our cast and crew holding a table read through, which is an important moment for the cast and the director to get on the same page creatively. It’s much easier to give notes and direct a performance when you’re not on set, so that way your actors know exactly what you’re hoping for when the shoot day arrives.

This series takes you from pre-production to post-production to show you how to make a movie or tv show idea become reality. In this web series, we take a short film and tv show idea and go through the process of directing movies and each of the film production careers associated with creating a proof of concept for a comedy tv show idea.

No filmmaking theory here, just a step by step process of what it looks like to create a proof of concept tv show. The filmmaking process is shown to you in detail, and you will be able to see just how hectic making a TV show pilot on a small budget can be.

Take what you learn from this filmmaking web series and apply it to your next project, whether you’re a director, cinematographer, editor, screenwriter, or filmmaker in general. See how to find and secure crew, find film locations, build shot lists, collaborate with your filmmaking team, see camera work decisions, and filmmaking problem-solving in real-time.

We use our StudioBinder filmmaking tool along the way, so you can see how call sheets, contacts lists, script breakdowns, and more can help you create your own tv show idea on a very small professional budget.
