Casting Directors Association talk


CDA talkWe are delighted to welcome Andrea Clark Casting and Kate Evans from Kate and Lou Casting along to speak in Feb about all things Casting Directors Association (CDA) and castings. Andrea and Kate sit on the board, and other members include casting directors Tree Petts, Emily Tilelli, Shakyra Dowling and Brendan McNamara (amongst others).

Andrea Clark Casting was founded in 2006. Andrea casts major national and international commercial campaigns, including MCDONALDS, RIMMEL, ZURICH, JOHN LEWIS and T-MOBILE, as well as films and TV projects of all sizes and genres. Prior to setting up her own company, Andrea cast the acclaimed feature films DOG SOLDIERSKEEPING MUM and VAN WILDER II, as well as children’s films THE THIEF LORDHEIDI and GREYFRIARS BOBBY. As an associate casting director she collaborated on the casting of blockbusters including HELLBOYBLADE II and HIDALGO, as well as television credits including PINOCHET’S LAST STANDWINTER SOLSTICE, and numerous mini-series for American network television, including the EMMY nominated JOSEPH.

Kate and Lou Casting is built around one basic principle… people. Kate Evans and Lou Smernicki are seasoned pros in the street casting and commercial casting arena, with oodles of casting under their belts. Some of their recent credits include that absolutely gorgeous monster commercial for JOHN LEWIS’ Christmas campaign, as well as the singing baby for TRAKTOR, their recent SPECSAVERS and CLARKS commercials.Andrea and Kate will be joining us to talk about the incredible work they do with the CDA. The CDA supports and encourages equal opportunity employment, and their casting director members actively strive to advocate and promote casting that accurately reflects our global society. With casting directors from film, television, commercials and more, this organisation provides a fair place for casting directors, and even hosts an annual Casting Awards – which will be on again this April.
