SAG-AFTRA Washington-Mid Atlantic Local Conservatory Hosts
an Evening with C.S.A. Casting Directors Tracy Kilpatrick and Blair Foster
Take this opportunity to meet and hear from the extraordinary casting team of Tracy Kilpatrick and Blair Foster. Tracy is an Emmy Award-winning casting director who has been in the business for over 20 years. She started on the Coen Brothers’ Hudsucker Proxy as an assistant, and since has been involved with casting projects of all sizes and types. Her film credits include (but are certainly not limited to) Forrest Gump, Dead Man Walking, Dallas Buyers Club, 99 Homes, and recently LBJ and Fast and Furious 8. Her television credits include John Adams, Bonnie and Clyde, The Wedding, Confirmation, Red Road, Hap and Leonard and of course, Mercy Street. She is presently casting Rob Reiner’s Shock and Awe which will film in the DC area some time in November. Tracy, as a casting director is always looking for the best actor who can tell the story truthfully.
Blair Foster, C.S.A. has been working with Tracy for the last 3 years. Blair graduated from film school at Elon University. After graduation she moved back to Louisiana to start working in the then-booming film industry there. She started working with Tracy on the feature film Get On Up and has been working with her ever since.
These two love their work and the actors with whom they work. Come hear how best to obtain the opportunity to audition for them and much, much more.
