A casting director is hired to cast talent
for movies, shows, original features, commercials, TV programs,
print work, fashion shows, runway, theatrical productions, commercials or even corporate and music videos. Casting directors assemble the casts that may include hundreds of actors, negotiate deals with the actors' agents and manage the contracts once the actors have signed. The casting director may be employed by the studio, own or work for a casting agency or be a solo operator. To understand and work in the entertainment industry, a casting director must study film and theater arts, such as acting and directing, as well as business management. They need to know how to negotiate contracts and understand the complexities of working with union employees. Casting directors must also be well-connected with everyone else who work in the entertainment industry.
