On Monday, March 11, 2013, Virginia-based casting directors Erica Arvold, CSA and Anne Chapman held a meet-and-greet event at the Washington–Mid Atlantic Local office. Twenty-five members had the opportunity to meet with Arvold and Chapman on an individual basis to introduce themselves and showcase their talents. Many of the members praised these two on their expertise and the advice offered during the sessions.
Arvold spent years casting in Los Angeles before moving to Charlottesville, Va., where her casting agency is now based. Anne Chapman is based in Richmond, Va. Together, the two handled the Virginia principal casting for the award-winning motion picture Lincoln, and their other recent credits include Wish You Well, Killing Lincoln and AMC’s newest pilot Turn.
We hope to continue holding these types of events so that Arvold and Chapman can meet as many of our wonderfully talented members as possible. Look out for future communications on such events.
