On March 13, the New York Background Advisory Committee and the MOVE N.Y. Committee presented another successful event, An Evening with Background Casting Directors. An overﬂow crowd of over 100 SAG-AFTRA members attended the event and gained valuable information from seasoned professionals. Topics covered included how technology has affected the background casting process, how expensive headshots are no longer a requirement and how to conduct yourself like a professional on set. Thanks to moderator Avis Boone and our guests Heather Comer (Comer Casting), Brittany Gischner and Stephen Bradford Kenny (Central Casting) and Meredith Jacobson Marciano (Amerif lm Casting Inc.).
