1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Eitan Loewenstein on Jan. 28 2004
Format: Paperback
After my dictionary, this is most useful book on my bookshelf. When I get an audition, I open up this book and read what the casting director likes and hates. When I want to submit on a project, I look up the casting director in this book to see their views on actor submissions. Bonnie's writing lets each casting director's unique voice and opinion shine through with wonderful clarity. Even if you aren't in LA and will never meet these specific casting directors, their words still resonate and hold true for anyone in the acting profession.

"Castings Qs" opens the door to the mystery behind what goes on in the casting director's world. I love the way Bonnie Gillespie invites you into their world with a series of insightful interviews filled with enlightening and entertaining information that any beginning or veteran actor will gain from, helping to put the actor at ease. This book allows the actor an understanding of the audition process from the casting director's point of view, including tips on submissions, how to be prepared for an audition, helpful do's and don'ts, what various casting directors prefer and what is expected of the actor from the minute they walk in the office to the end of the interview. This is truly a must-have for any actor, enabling them to refer to the book over and over again as their career moves forward. Thank you, Bonnie, for helping to open so many doors.

The book has given me a clear picture of what is expected of me in this profession. I know now how to approach agents, casting directors, and how to promote myself. I recommend you buy this book in conjunction with "Your Film Acting Career" by M.K. Lewis. Both give a great overview of how the business is run.
Bonnie also answers questions on Backstage.com.
