12 years ago an actor walked into my studio with a beautiful, quiet intensity. It was a print audition, but he took it as seriously as a reading for a feature film. I shot quite a few pictures of him and this was my favorite. And yes, he booked the job. Shortly after that he was LA bound. The rest is history. But the story was much shorter than anyone expected. The body of work he leaves behind is magnificent to say the least. One can only imagine the work he could have done for decades to come. Rest In Peace Chadwick Boseman and thank you for inspiring all of us to always strive to be the best version of who we are. And thank you @major38 for sending Chadwick to me. #chadwickboseman #casting #castingdirector

From Paul at Donna Grossman Casting: We are in unprecedented times, but what this means for all of us is that we will grow and adapt together. Our lives, both personal and professional, will likely be forever changed, but the most important thing to do right now is keep safety and kindness at the forefront of all our actions, and keep moving forward.

So, with that being said, actors and models should get familiar with the ZOOM conference app. Whether you want to use your laptop, cell phone or tablet, you can now join our virtual casting sessions from the comfort and safety of your home.

Some tips to get started: A tripod or sturdy base for your device. A clean, solid colored wall as a backdrop. Ample ambient lighting, either from a window or artificial light sources. Lastly, let’s keep that PMA (positive mental attitude) going!

We look forward to seeing you in the next virtual casting session!

To all: The age of self submission for all casting is upon us. Be prepared, this is not just for motion/commercials but is for photo shoots as well.

You should all have

1. Camera that takes photo and video is best, but a I phone or good Android will do.--It should have a timer or a remote if you shoot alone.

2. Tripod. This is very important. It helps keep all your shots/video consistent.
3. Background: Simple solid color wall, or drapes; white, light grey, etc. NO PATTERNS.

4. Good Lighting. This can be 2 table lamps, to track lighting. Keep it simple and soft. Lighting should not be in your shot.

5: Learn how to rename your photos or video to : Jane Doe 1, Jane Doe 2, etc.

6. Be prepared to upload from your phone or from your desktop. Every CD uses something. Sometimes its just email, some use Actors Access or Casting Networks and some will use their own system.

Be ready for feedback from the CD in case a shot is very specific and needs to be adjusted.

Can you tell me for the woman cancer survivors who will be advertising and what?
Could i talk to you please
Dear Ms. Grossman, My daughter and I would like to get into doing commercials and make-up and hair modeling. However, between the news and social media we are a little bit apprehensive to get involve with this line of work. I am contacting you because I have researched your company and feel you are a professional and trustworthy company and my daughter and I are truley professional and trustworthy people. What is the best approach toward meeting with you and being able to discuss this type of business, so that we don't fall victimes to this industry and that we have a perfect understanding of the business and how it works. Is there a possiblity or a chance that we could actually meet with you ? We are not far from Manhattan and this week would be a great week for us to come in and meet with you. Thanks so much for your time, we look forward to hearing from you. Best regards, Stephanie
Happy birthday Donna and how can I getting some back ground work
