I'm just wondering how you guys like to handle auditions. Do you give the applicants a script to study before they show up or just let them read cold? What are the pros and cons of each?

Also what script do you use? The script of the movie you are shooting, or something else?

We give (in advance) the sides for the role that the actor is reading for (not the entire script), and use the script that we'll be shooting.
