Csa President Matthew Lessall Talks What You Should Know About Casting in the U.S. and U.K.

Last week, Backstage published an interview with Csa president Matthew Lessall and interim chair of the Csa London board Nancy Bishop. In part two of their interview, they discussed differences and similarities between U.S. and U.K. casting, the benefits of being a Csa member, diversity in casting, and how Csa London can expand networks for both CDs and actors. Do you see differences between CDs and the industry in Europe vs. the U.S.?Matthew Lessall: I’m told there are many differences, beginning with the number of actors, there are so many more in the U.S. The U.K. and European CDs say they have more time to give to actors in the room.

Csa President Matthew Lessall Has Big Plans for the New London Chapter

The Casting Society of America has been an institution in casting since their beginnings in 1982, but with Matthew Lessall as the organisation’s President, it has grown into more of a culture of ‘doers’ rather than ‘talkers.’ They have important initiatives in casting recognition, actor support and opportunity, diversity, and inclusivity along with charitable work. The London chapter for U.K. and European members could mean a lot for the way casting directors work, work together, and ultimately have an impact on casting on an international scale. Backstage spoke with Lessall and Nancy Bishop, London’s interim Board chair, to find out more. Why has the Csa decided to base their European operation in London, and why now?Matthew Lessall: We have the highest concentration of international members here in London. It’s good to service members like those who want to organise events, have support, and get help in a timely manner.

What influences will it have for society as a whole? And is it tilting at windmills or who has done it successfully?

Todd Lincoln on his surprise 'V/H/S: Viral' segment and how the 'powers-that-be' ruined 'The Apparition'
Think you've seen "V/H/S: Viral"? Not all of it, as it turns out. Though the theatrical and VOD release of the third chapter in Magnet's horror anthology series featured segments by directors Nacho Vigalondo, Marcel Sarmiento, Gregg Bishop, Justin Benson and Aaron Scott Moorhead, fans who buy the DVD or Blu-ray will be treated to a surprise sixth segment directed by Todd Lincoln ("The Apparition"). Titled "Gorgeous Vortex," the visually-dazzling short was inspired by "avante-garde video artists, fashion photography, old Italian Horror movies, George Lucas’s early experimental films, and the writings of J.G. Ballard and Jean Baudrillard" -- quite a mashup of influences! Lincoln spoke with HitFix recently about the film, which journeys into a cryptic, sensual world of murder, the occult and, yes, fashion models. Curious? Here's a teaser: In addition to an in-depth discussion of the short, Lincoln also provided more insight into his 2012 feature film "The Apparition,
