PORTLAND, ORE. In conjunction with its upcoming master series of workshops featuring prominent L.A. and NY casting directors, Cast Iron Studios will be hosting its first ever “boot camp” aimed exclusively at parents of aspiring child actors.
On Friday, April 5, 2013, Casting Directors Lana Veenker and Eryn Goodman of Portland’s Cast Iron Studios (Grimm, Leverage, Twilight) will welcome Los Angeles Kids’ Casting Director Christine Scowley (How to Rock, Movie Surfers, Smash Cuts, Rock the Cradle) to the University of Oregon White Stag Block in Portland’s Old Town for a lively panel discussion and Q&A.
A few months back I was contacted by the PR executives at TNT regarding a profile that Costco was looking to do on “Leverage”. I was curious why Costco of all companies was interested in talking about Oregon Film and Video but when I found out that their Costco Connections gets sent out to over 8,000,000 people nationwide, I realized it didn’t really matter why they were interested, it was great exposure for our state and this industry.
