I couldn't have asked for a better day. Me coming super prepared really made the day smooth and kept things professional. About 60 people came into audition and we saw some really nice useable talent. I plan to begin shooting in 2 weeks so hopefully that goes well too. I got a lot of compliments on how the concept for my film was really unique and they liked it. We also kept the audition really laid back and joked around every once in a while with the actors and I think it really made them relaxed and comfortable.

All in all it was a very productive day! Now I need sleep to get rid of this migrane.

Glad to hear things went so smoothly.

I can see why you casted the guy in the video. I can see he's got potential.

The best advice I ever got for casting people was from a book I read by Dov Simens. It said "cast the people who act, not the ones who talk."

Oh and a sidenote. One of the bandits I casted, one of his eyes is like naturally all white. It looks so amazing for this!
