Street casting: the next big thing

Filmmakers are increasingly putting people off the street into lead roles because they deliver what professional actors sometimes can't: authenticity

For the last 15 years Katrin Vorderwülbecke has worked as a casting director. From her early experiences in short films she worked with non-professional actors and cast them as part of her script research. Casting „real people“ became her trademark, demonstrated in one of her latest and most outstanding casting director works „Western“ by Valeska Grisebach, which premiered in Cannes Film Festival last year and won several international awards.

In this NUFF-seminar Katrin will talk about her experiences and techniques she is using finding the best cast.
