Today, General Films signed a contract with a casting director for their new film, Merrily (more about Merrily soon). "What is a casting director," you might ask? A casting director is a delightfully astute, well-connected, smart, and in our case, witty, human whose life's mission it is to find the perfect assemblage of actors for a film. They work long hours in poorly lit, subterranean office cubicles, in which they sip weak tea and listen to 1950s modern jazz on old transistor radios*. And yet somehow, they rise above these barbaric work conditions to seek out and engage dedicated, creative, smart actors to populate the fictional universes so carefully crafted by screenwriters the world over.
Our casting director's name is Adrienne. She is incredibly good at what she does and thank goodness, as we've a number of very tricky roles to be cast in order for Merrily to spring forth into reality - or, at least filmic reality.
*NOTE: in our case, none of this is true, thank goodness.
