What an exciting month of MADIVA Podcast and QUIRKY VOICES shows we have for you! Today we look at ways of getting cast that aren't just from reels. My wonderful guest JOE LIDSTER of Big Finish talks all things indie audio and how he finds and sources his casts. And no. Not usually from a reel or audition - he goes a huntin'. In a socially acceptable way!
He co-produces DARK SHADOWS - Link here amongst other cool things and making short films (see here for his groovy film WASTED). I think he's an inspiration - please do have a look at allll his amazing projects and pop him a message to say huzzahs for his contribution to the podcast too!
I hope you take heart from this and do go out and DO MORE THINGS. ALL OF THE THINGS. Go to writing groups and help perform their works, go watch and do some impromptu or short plays, some community theatre and ...well...just...get out! Network/go for a drink and chat with other actors - get your twitter and social media balanced!
Am furiously editing the next two eps on Mic Technique with Nic Redman and WebSite branding with Jo Dickie. CANT WAIT to share those!
