"Film has been my passion since as far back as I can remember. At 9 years old, I used my laundry basket as a camera stand and my 2 year old brother as an extra. Thankfully, I have progressed and so has the technology. At Casting Workbook, I am able to use all of my creative and technical skills in a sleek & graphical format. I love being able to upload an audition in Vancouver and have the casting director download to DVD in Los Angeles a few minutes later."
