Il 24 e 25 Novembre 2018 ACT presenta la prima Masterclass dell’a.a. 2018/19: “Il lavoro del casting director: come trovare gli attori giusti per il film”. La Masterclass, in inglese, sarà tenuta da Katie Lee, TW casting director e casting director delle comparse europee per Silence (2016) di Martin Scorsese e coordinatrice dei casting e casting director delle comparse per Vita di Pi (2012) nelle fasi di pre-produzione e produzione.

La Masterclass è rivolta a coloro che devono trovare gli attori giusti per le proprie produzioni e vogliono capire come lavora un casting director, come gestire gli attori o le scene di massa. Inoltre nella due giorni Katie Lee parlerà anche della recitazione di fronte alla macchina da presa, in modo da mostrare ai partecipanti quali sono gli elementi da ricercare negli attori. Un’ultima sezione verterà sull’organizzazione dei casting e la gestione delle scene con molte comparse, concludendo con un’esercitazione pratica.

 TW casting director and European extras casting director on Martin Scorsese's Silence (2016), and casting coordinator and extra casting director on Ang Lee's Life of Pi (2012), covering both pre-production and the shoot.
Katie Lee started her" film school" with Fox 2000's project. The mentor who has inspired her in casting and wrangling the crowd scene is the crowd assistant director on Closer (2004), who builds complex scenes beautifully. And the mentor who brought her into the assistant director department was the first assistant director on Harry Potter (2007), who deals gracefully with weather, animals and children, the uncontrollable. The last but not the least was the director Ang Lee, who shows her that casting is an art, not a luck.
