Hello San Diego Filmmakers!!

Come out and experience another great SD Filmakers event with our special guest Actor/Producer/Director/Acting Coach  Billy Cowart. Billy will discuss the specifics of casting and how to have the greatest impact on your audience without having to work harder at it. Understanding marketing, essence and archetype in casting goes a long way to putting the perfect cast together. It starts in the writing process and ends in the editing process and must be considered every step along the way. Whether you are an actor, writer, producer, or editor this will inspire you.
