Video – Casting Catch-22′s

Posted on: October 22nd, 2014 by wmapother No Comments

Longtime readers know I’m a proud co-founder of Slated, an online film finance marketplace.  We connect investors and indie filmmakers, and we’ve also built the first industry-only social network, with over 17,000 users.  For more information, check out slated, and our FAQs on the Slated site.

Every month Slated hosts a Filmonomics panel at the Los Angeles SoHo House.  The most recent panel was on the Catch-22′s of casting, and the panelists were myself, Peter Facinelli (“Twilight,” “Nurse Jackie”), and Jon Gries (“Napoleon Dynamite,” “The Bridge”).

Check out the Filmonomics video that includes parts of our panel.  The Slated CEO, Stephan Paternot, hosts weekly Filmonomics videos.  You can  see and subscribe to all the Filmonomics videos.

Last night I was on the panel for a SAG Foundation talk, “Conversations with Working Actors.”  It was a blast.  The other three were Curtis Armstrong, Beth Grant, and Richard Lawson. I would’ve been happy just to sit in the audience to watch and listen to those three. The video is now online.SAG Foundation logo
