Audiovisual productions and co-productions in Spanish-speaking countries are on the rise, as is the need to fill positions in all the associated technical professions. One of them is Casting Direction, vital for the success of a production, but without any specific and quality training to become a Casting Director. Until now.

The demand for new actors and actresses and the need for new talent has made casting management an indispensable function in any production. This profession requires a correct reading and interpretation of the scripts, a comprehensive analysis of the characters and a lot of creativity to search for and find the right actors and actresses to bring those characters to life.

Stories are nothing until someone tells them. The choice of that “someone” makes the film different, makes the series different, makes the documentary different. If the script provides the words, the casting provides the bodies, the voices, essential and key to the success or failure of a work.

You learn by doing, that is the basis of this course and you will find it by searching, that is its motto. You will learn from the best and get to know their working method. With all the theoretical and practical information you will create your own, which will prepare you to integrate into a dynamic labour market.

The selection will be made by means of an interview and no candidate will be discarded on the basis of their previous academic qualifications. Therefore, whatever your current profession, you will be able to take this course and acquire the skills to become a Casting Director.
