First Round of Casting Complete

March 15, 2009

First of all, I haven’t yet mentioned Becca, our amazing casting director.  She helped me pour through the hundreds of submissions we got for this little movie.  She also organized our casting session at Cazt.  It’s a great facility in West Hollywood, and best of all, it’s free for the production!  I like free.

On Friday and Saturday, we auditioned fifty eight people for our two leads.  I don’t mind telling you that I got a little sick of hearing my own dialogue repeated over and over for fourteen hours.

Also, I’ve never heard more variations on the word “gauche.” “Gowtch” was most common, but we heard “go-shay,” “gosh,” and, my personal favorite, “gaw-chay.”

Seriously, if you see a word you don’t recognize, grab a dictionary (or go to dictionary.com) and look it up.

Now comes the hard part of narrowing it down to three or four candidates.  From there, we’ll have call backs and see which pair works best.



  1. Thank you very much for the audition. It was a lot of fun!

  2. […] Things I Learned During Casting… …besides the fact that no one knows how to pronounce “gauche.” […]
