Had three lovely meetings tonight at The Network's Indie Film Fest with Harley Kaplan of >Powers/Kaplan Casting, Brette Goldstein of Brette Goldstein Casting, and Caroline Sinclair of Caroline Sinclair Casting! Harley told me this fantastic story of how he and another casting director both took out pens to write at the same time, and that they were BOTH using my famous Listen To Melanie pens, and then starting talking about me and what a good marketing idea that was. Appropriate, coming off the heels of the Business and Marketing for Voice Actors class I taught last night! ;)
