THE WORLD OF FILM & TV CASTING | 12PM – 1PM
Barbara McNamara, President of Barbara McNamara Casting, talks about the ins and outs of casting a show, including what she looks for in actors when filling specific roles both for “background” and principal parts. Barbara cast background and principle players for a variety of television and film projects, including HBO’S Sex and the City, NBC’s 30 Rock, The Devil Wears Prada, We Made This Movie, The Making of the Mob, and NASCAR The Rise of American Speed. To kick-off this wide-ranging discussion, we present the short film, The Seven Men of Hanukkah, a romantic comedy that involves acting and casting calls, is about a man who has recently experienced a major loss and then embarks on the most peculiar audition he’s ever had. The lead characters are the kind of people who usually play the best friend, and in this case, they are pushed to center stage. Writer Sharon Cooper and director Daryl Lathon will join in the “casting call” conversation after the screening.

Interview with WE ARE MOVING STARS
Why did you make your film?
There were several reasons we made this film. The Seven Men of Hanukkah is a short. Several years ago, I wrote a romantic comedy feature while at NYU called The Golden Age of Kali, which is about a closeted, Hindu lesbian New Yorker who is trying to keep her Jewish girlfriend away from her family and vice versa. The Seven Men of Hanukkah is definitely not about that; The Seven Men of Hanukkah is a romantic comedy about a man who’s recently experienced a major loss and he’s about to go on the most peculiar audition he’s ever had. Even though the content is clearly different, the short film could serve as a kind of calling card for my work as a writer and that was one of the reasons I wanted to work on it.
