    I was talking to a buddy of mine last night and the subject came up. I never did any narrative stuff at all, so where does one go to find actors? I know some Horrorfest entries used professional actors, did you post an ad somewhere specific besides craigslist?

    I am not a serious filmmaker, I am however serious about making more fun movies.

    We used a CD (casting director) for some roles, others were cast from people within the industry already known to the filmmakers.

    I hadn't considered offering booze, not a bad idea. Perhaps leads get a nice single malt or a great bottle of wine, supporting a decent top shelf variety and background players get canned beer. Maybe this could be called "Alcohol Scale"?

    Well, the leading lady was sleeping with me. The rest I enticed with promises of a glorious feast at the Cheesecake Factory. And booze when we got there.

    Mutual friends on Myspace. They were eager so there wasn't much enticing... they did however enjoy the sub sandwhiches for lunch and the pizza, stew and brew for the wrap party. If you can't pay 'em, feed 'em!

    I'm lucky. I hit on every hot extra I meet on a set (I do a lot of set visits). But still the old staple never fails: friends, family, girlfriends, etc.

    I cast through a Talent agency up here in Fresno that wanted to get some exposure for their actors, It is Called Devore Talent. I got Headshots, and scheduled auditions for each role. We provided water for the auditioners.
