OPEN CASTING CALL WHAT TO DO , the best thing to do is just show up! If I post an email for those who can't show up, it is simply a backup for the casting team. There would not be an open call if there was not a simple need to find LOCAL people. So with that said, next time you see an OPEN CASTING CALL, just show up. Don't be lazy and try to submit to an the email address. Casting directors will only hire those who show up at the event. Or to paraphrase Woody Allen 99% of life ie Casting is showing up . If you go to more casting calls you greatly increase your chances of getting parts.
